We the undersigned are very concerned about statements from BP about drilling in the Gulf again. They said they might someday drill again into the same lucrative undersea pocket of oil that spilled millions of gallons of crude, wrecked livelihoods and fouled beaches along the Gulf of Mexico. "There's lots of oil and gas here," Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles said at a news briefing. "We're going to have to think about what to do with that at some point." The vast oil reservoir beneath the blown well is still believed to hold nearly $4 billion worth of crude. With the company and its partners facing tens of billions of dollars in liabilities, the incentive to exploit the wells and the reservoir could grow. This deeply concerns me, I don't how you could even consider letting them into the Gulf again. The oilspill lasted for over 100 days, even if it had lasted 2 days that is to long.. The time has come to stop off shore drilling period drill baby drill is OVER. SPILL BABY SPILL is what we get, I just don't get how you guys have not realized this. Even if the oil companies are paying you to allow this, and I am not accusing I am just saying if, how can you even think in the deepest parts of your mind that it is safe... it has been proven time and time again to be unsafe and an enviromental hazard.
The time has come for you to do YOUR JOB and PROTECT us and the earth... we want an end to off shore drilling, we want an end to dirty energy, we want you to create jobs cleaning up the enviroment, and providing clean energy, we want you to make green energy more affordable to the masses. We want change... we only borrow this planet from our childeren and have to return it to them when we step down and I for one do not want to leave them a mess that is hurt beyond repair. Please step up to the job we trusted to you and act in favor of us and not BP
