There -- do more flexible.
Offshore drilling moratorium on the way.
Or so says interior secretary Ken Salazar today at -- senate meeting.
Sounds good right.
But then -- those are -- this to say his office look at how to refine the moratorium in the weeks and months ahead.
-- -- the gulf simply doesn't have that kind of time.
The drilling sat down in the region will lose as many -- -- 150000.
Jobs by the administration's own estimate.
It's a tragedy in an area where the seafood industry is dead and tourism is dying.
The moratorium assumes because of a single blow out all of the deep water rigs drilling in the Gulf of Mexico or unsafe.
Look when a plane crashes -- ground all planes while we review them for safety.
The 33 deep water wells an issue could just be inspected again for safety.
Sure Salazar saying today is new flexible band may allow for already proven wells to keep drilling.
But that will be enough to keep all oil related jobs in the golf.
And let's face it that commission investigating the safety of the wells haven't even met yet and won't buy their own admission until mid July.
So any report from that won't likely come until next year.
For me I prefer to speed things up get an on site inspection conducted quickly -- get people back to work.
But that's just my two cents and this it.
