The only thing environmentalists like about the oil industry is that it provides their Prius hybrids with gasoline. Other than that these nature nuts hate every aspect of the business sector they refer to as, “Big Oil.”
Now here’s the story. Out in the Gulf of Mexico there are hundreds of oilrigs that are no longer in service. At the demand of environmentalists, laws have been created to remove the rigs, which are considered ecological hazards.
Tell that to the sea life. Underwater cameras have determined that old rigs become artificial reefs with rich coral habitats that are teeming with fish and other sea creatures. But that means nothing to the greenies. They contend that the rigs are unnatural, even though the environment has neatly adapted to the manmade structures. And, with the help of the Obama administration, the waters of the Gulf have become a demolition derby with oilrigs being dynamited two or three times per week. Team Obama refers to this two-year old demo-program as, “Operation Idle Iron.”
