Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is still in favor of more drilling in spite of the 1980’s Exxon-Valdez disaster that happened in her own state. Palin says, “I repeat the slogan “drill here, drill now” not out of naivete or disregard for the tragic consequences of oil spills. I continue to believe in it because increased domestic oil production will make us a more secure, prosperous, and peaceful nation.”
I guess fishermen are going to have to guess-timate how many fish they would have been able to catch if the fishing grounds weren’t closed off. This reminds me of the deceitful insurance companies that have been receiving money from clients for 25-30 years and when a disaster strikes, they catch amnesia when it’s time to pay out. Or they tell the family that the coverage they had didn’t cover that particular disaster.
