Spill Here, Spill Now


“So today we’re announcing the expansion of offshore oil and gas exploration. . . . We’ll protect areas that are vital to tourism, the environment, and our national security.” — Barack Obama, 31 March 2010

“It turns out, by the way, that oil rigs today generally don’t cause spills.  They are technologically very advanced.  Even during Katrina, the spills didn’t come from the oil rigs, they came from the refineries onshore.” — Barack Obama, 2 April 2010

“So, let me be clear.  I continue to believe that domestic oil production is an important part of our overall strategy for energy security, but I’ve always said it must be done responsibly, for the safety of our workers and our environment.” — Barack Obama, 30 April 2010
