Did everybody hear McLame's comments?
There was a video of him on K. Olberman last night saying how fish just LOVE the oil platforms? He sounded like a blubbering, senile idiot. Even some people in the crowd behind him looked like they were just cringing. I LOVED it!
Drilling for oil offshore has some surprising eco-benefits
For many, the idea of off-shore oil rigs and environmental protection seem to go together like ... well, literally, oil and water. But if recent findings from the Bayou State of Louisiana are any indication, it may be such anti-oil sentiments which aren?t too factually slick.
This, according to the publication Eco-Logic, which notes that a recent study from LSU found there is an astounding 50 percent more marine life around oil platforms than around surrounding mud bottoms. Indeed, the same study showed that 85 percent of Louisiana?s fishing trips involve fishing around these very waters, which is significant when you consider that Louisiana produces one third of America?s commercial fishing!
