There are too many lies and myths to debunk about drilling for oil in America and causing minimal environmental impact. Oyster is right not to let them get away with the mythology when it comes to Louisiana. Everyone should read it, link to it, email it, copy and paste it (with attributions, of course) and use it as evidence that the powers-that-be will lie about anything to keep oil money in their pockets.
And if you think I'm being a tree-hugging hippie, think instead about all the food you eat from the Gulf of Mexico, and the human costs we are paying for this kind of behavior.
