Environmental impact is a big part of the OCS drilling debate.
Right. Different subject. Nothing to do with dead zones then. Environmental impact of offshore drilling. Any conclusions yet?
Strangely enough you'd never get permission for onshore drilling in the UK on the scale seen in the USA, but there haven't been any serious problems (apart from the Piper Alpha disaster which resulted in major loss of life, but no significant pollution) with offshore UK drilling over the last 40 years.
