14. I wonder how

 

the Oil Boyz define shallow vs. deepwater?

After the BP explosion, I saw a map of the GoM and all the oil rigs. I had no idea that the Gulf is filled with them. And as they age, the materials have to degrade resulting in more accidents...wouldn't that be a realistic assumption?

I'm no Oil Boy, but just who is overseeing that these rigs are maintained and when they should be capped? And how the hell do you cap them FOREVER?

It all comes down to Oil Jobs vs. Mother Earth. If fracking destroys our water supply and drilling for oil offshore leads to no fish, just WTF are we doing? Employing people to kill everyone in the future?

I'm sick of fossil fuels...there has to be a method to drive a car and heat a house that doesn't use them.
