Default Rick Perry: Oil spill may be 'act of God'

Texas Gov. Rick Perry Monday offered a stern warning against halting oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico in the wake of a massive oil leak, and he raised the question of whether the explosion was an “act of God.”

More like an act of Dick Cheney, its now coming out that oil companies in the Gulf of Mexico were excused from installing fail safes on their rigs in 2003 that would have prevented this because it would have increased their costs. Remote fail safes to prevent this sort of thing are installed on rigs all over Europe, including on BP rigs in the North Sea.

Its obvious that the fail safes in deep sea drilling are inadequate all rigs are going to have to be fitted with new equipment before they can drill.

I hate to see oil companies profiting from their own incompetence so open up the strategic reserve to mediate the price of oil until the rigs are back online.

If only I was king, shucks.
