Rachel Maddow – America’s Sad Cycle Of Drilling and Spilling 11

Posted on June 06, 2010 by bp complaints

Rachel Maddow on MSNBC gives an unbelievable account of the oil spills we’ve encountered. When will it all stop? When faced with oil disaster, drill more By The Rachel Maddow Show – Wed May 5, 2010 9:27 AM EDT The Deepwater Horizon disaster could send as much as 60000 barrels of oil a day straight into the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. This looming catastrophe led Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, whose state of Florida is threatened by the volcano of oil, to say Tuesday that he’s willing to filibuster an energy bill that expands off-shore drilling. Republicans, meanwhile, say they won’t vote for an energy bill that fails to include more drilling. From the Wall Street Journal: Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl (R., Ariz.) said legislation can’t move forward without three “pillars”: expanded oil and gas exploration, more nuclear power and a price on carbon-emissions in exchange for the first two. “At least temporarily, this has knocked one of the legs of the stool off to the side, so my guess is that nothing proceeds at the moment,” Mr. Kyl said. Mr. Nelson agreed, saying, “It makes it more difficult to get 60 votes,” the number to break a Senate filibuster. “You’re not going to get offshore drilling in an energy bill.” Some Democrats, like Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, share Sen. Kyl’s zeal for drilling. Landrieu’s state, of course, is also in the path of the Deepwater Horizon plume — making hers a kind of hair-of-the-dog cure for what ails you.

This was from The Rachel Maddow Show, 05/26/2010. I watched this, and I think for better or worse, it gives an interesting perspective on the off shore drilling going on both now, and in the past.
