Perspective

Maitri posts some apocalyptic images of the Macondo oil gusher in relation to other places in the United States. It is only a size comparison, but with the push to open up other coasts to drilling, it gives the viewer something to think about.

If you live anywhere near the water, this could be you. Just so we're all clear on the costs of oil drilling and the price of deregulation.

I'm confused as to what this has to do with deregulation. I don't understand what's being deregulated.

Here's a start.

This is what happens when for-profit entities get to make or influence their own rules.

But I may be using "deregulation" incorrectly - what I'm talking about makes more sense as "incompetent and compromised regulation."
