Can't surf in this

No. I'm not for offshore drilling off of Florida's coasts.
There are fears of an environmental disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, as efforts to clear up an oil spill have been suspended because of bad weather.

A drilling rig leased by the oil company BP exploded and sank off the Louisiana coast last week. Some 1,000 barrels of oil a day are leaking into the sea from the damaged well, officials say.

I'm sure it is a mess, but it is the deaths of the men which I mourn. Halliburton had men and equipment on this rig, but only lost the equipment. These rigs are so regulated that this kind of accident is few and far between.
