More Drilling In The Gulf, The Death Of A Thousand Cuts


CleanTechnica has an interesting op-ed about the abundance of oil wells -- and abandoned wells -- in the Gulf of Mexico. It has a lot of links to news sources from the New York Times to Huffington Post to The Sword Press that will keep you interested and clicking for awhile.

"With 4000 active wells already in the Gulf and nearly seven times that many abandoned like so many gum wrappers it is apparent that the oil companies should be required to sweep up behind their operations. I'd like to see big oil forced to replace their played out facilities with solar, wind, and tidal farms, wherever feasible, rather than simply walking away from their trash and leaving it for the public to clean up."
