The Trump administration has posted to the Federal Register its erasure of rules regarding offshore drilling that were put in after BP's Deepwater Horizon rig explosion and well blowout that occurred in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, an event that killed 11 workers and spilled 200 million gallons of oil into the gulf waters. https://www.politico.com/story/2019/05/02/offshore-drilling-rules-1404098 Huh. Guess not enough administration staffers had read Fire on the Horizon, the Untold Story of the Gulf Oil Disaster in time to talk Trump or his Interior Department's chief flunky out of this bonehead maneuver. Well maybe they'll make time to read the sequel, after "something happens"... again. Meanwhile, for those wannabe offshore drillers who may have forgotten some details of the aftermath of the 2010 incident, they added up to criminal pleas and over 40 billion bucks' worth of fines and settlements. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deepwater_Horizon_oil_spill But never mind, the four-year period of special supervision of BP's ethics and safety standards by the EPA has long since ended, so... moving right along, next step was to get those pesky rules back out of the way. Mission accomplished, even if "a large majority" of the 118k public comments criticized the changes.
