BBC News: How big is the Deepwater Horizon oil spill?


Drill, baby, drill! indeed.

As it turns out, so the linked article says, the biggest disasters aren’t drilling platform-related, they’re shipping related. So, what would you rather have? Oil rigs which are close to home, requiring less transportation (or even having a direct connection to shore)? Or oil rigs in the middle-east monopoly states which require transportation of vast quantities of oil over significant distances?

Yeah, yeah, I know… but until you stop driving a car to work on a road made of asphalt and you stop using plastic and until you understand that we’re all dependent on the stuff, which would you rather have?
