Thanks Bryan. What's also scary is how ill-prepared Shell and the entire oil industry is to respond to a spill in the harsh Arctic environment. Documents recently obtained by Seattle-area NPR affiliate KUOW reveal that Shell's oil spill response gear - the containment dome that would be used to cap a blow-out - "crushed like a beer can" during testing in the relatively serene waters of Puget Sound. Why would the Obama administration continue to let Shell and Big Oil pursue Arctic drilling without a robust oil spill response system in place?   Details at: http://www.desmogblog.com/2012/12/03/shell-s-arctic-oil-spill-gear-crushed-beer-can-simple-test-Brendan DeMelle, DeSmogBlog.com
