Charles Krauthhammer had an interesting op ed piece today in the Washington Post reprinted here on the National Review blog. As we scientists are well aware, nothing is as straight forward as it seems to be. Who is to blame for this spill. Krauthammer has an interesting take on the role of environmentalists. His basic premise is that environmentalists have forced oil companies offshore, despite the inherent risks involved in deep ocean water drilling. This in turn has increased the risk of accidents and is partially to blame for today’s disaster. Interesting reading.
