The BP oil spill has demonstrated one thing for certain. Neither BP not anyone knows how to stop a deep-sea spill once it occurs. It is equally certain that a spill of almost any magnitude can be and likely will be devastating to the environment and to the livelihood, health and safety of people who live in coastal areas. Obama should make the suspension of oil permits for deepwater exploration permanent and no new permits should considered ever again. The risk is too great.
Write the White House and Congress: Tell them you want deep-sea drilling ended now and forever and existing deep-sea wells shut down as fast as possible.
