Oil, gas lawsuit asking industry to fix pipeline damage to Louisiana coast as promised: John Barry~There's a lot of misinformation that has been spread about the lawsuit the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority-East filed against 97 oil, gas and pipeline companies to make them restore the part of the coast they damaged. Here's the truth: Far from being radical, the lawsuit represents the most conservative values in America. It asks the industry to do what parents are supposed to teach their kids: Keep your word, obey the law and take responsibility for your actions.
The industry has done none of those things.
