Jim spoke briefly about this on today’s show…let me fill in the rest of the blanks. Obama appointed a seven person commission to delve into the cause of the Gulf oil spill, and to recommend ways to make drilling safer.
The following folks are on said commission. There are two co-chairmen. One is a former Senator and Governor from Florida who has opposed any off-shore drilling in the Gulf, and the other co-chair is a former president and chairman of the National Wildlife Fund.
Next, we have a biological oceanographer, the vice president of the National Geographic Society, a member of the Aspen Institute’s Commission on Arctic Climate Change, the president of the Natural Resources Defense Council (who has, since the Gulf oil spill, publicly called for the end of off-shore and Arctic drilling on numerous occasions), and, a college professor with some engineering background but whose specialties are physics and optics.
Anyone want to hazard a guess as to the final recommendations of said commission?
Why waste our time and money…present your “findings” tomorrow and be done with it.
