Unbelievably, Obama approves 27 new offshore drilling permits—26 with exemptions from environmental review

Obama Administration Approves 27 New Offshore Drilling Permits

The Center for Biological Diversity reports the Obama administration is continuing to exempt new offshore drilling operations from environmental review despite the Gulf disaster. Since the April 20th explosion at the BP rig, the Department of Interior’s Minerals Management Service has approved twenty-seven new offshore drilling permits. All but one of the projects were granted the same environmental review exemption used to approve the BP drilling site.  [Democracy Now headlines, 5/10/2010]



Obama's decisions have been a disaster for this country!
