I mean, SERIOUSLY, if you want to drill in our backyards and all over our land, CLEAN UP YOUR ACT!
Seems $400 BILLION in profits would be plenty of money to do a much better job.
This particular spill was from a barge not an offshore drilling rig. Still, we don’t need any more contamination of our water, salt or fresh.
The barge was carrying 9,983 barrels of oil, more than 400,000 gallons, and Coast Guard Capt. Lincoln Stroh said the entire load was likely spilled. A DEQ contractor has set up floating “boom” rings to protect local water intakes and marsh areas.
