Offshore Deep Water Drilling Gets a Green Signal

UK MPs have given their consent to deep water drilling off United Kingdom. However, protestors, including oil companies, unanimously agree that this step poses a serious threat to the environment. The Energy and Climate Change committee was asked to look into the risks of offshore drilling and it was established that it could cause an oil spill worse than the Gulf of Mexico spill last year.

According to Member of Parliament and chairman of the committee, Tim Yeo, ‘Britain’s energy and national security rely on exploiting the newly discovered oilfields’. He suggested that the safety rules be “tightened up”. He added, however, that the general regulatory system was extremely “robust”. Tim Yeo also said, “I think the concerns are nothing like big enough to justify stopping the process”.
