US Plans New Offshore Drilling Rules, But Questions Remain

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

The U.S. is set to announce new regulations on offshore oil and gas drilling as an increased safeguard against disasters like the 2010 Deepwater Horizon spill in the Gulf of Mexico, according to reports from Obama administration officials who spoke to the New York Times on Friday.

This is timed to coincide with a push for offshore oil rigs for the Mid-South Atlantic seaboard. Virginia's corporate Senators (top Party men they) used offshore wind as a ruse to get their nose in the door. But of course no one with serious money wants to invest in things that must be maintained to be profitable, everyone knows the real money is in extraction.
