Once the moratorium is lifted the oil companies will finish off whatever is left of the Gulf...

It's unfortunate that this moratorium couldn't be in place permanently, however, the oil companies have thoroughly polluted the Gulf Coast and corrupted all the state governments along the coastline.
The states, the refineries and chemical companies, the support service companies would never tolerate a permanent ban on new drilling.
Especially since under the middle of the Gulf, the largest oil reserves in the world have been found recently at unheard-of new depths.
2 years ago or so, in our town, when the discovery was announced, vacant office space near the port evaporated.
You think the jobs situation is bad now?
Terminate oil operations in the Gulf.
Do you dare?
