The reply by JLawson:

No, it doesn't. In fact - that's about as far from 'good' as I could imagine.

Ironic, isn't it, that the environmental lobby, pushing hard as they can to get oil drilling as far offshore as possible, seems to have caused the disaster that they were so anxious to avoid.

Of course, it all depends on how accurate the info and analysis is... but it rings true, unfortunately.

What can you expect from people making technology policy who have no deep understanding of technology?

...who have no deep understanding of technology...

Uh, I think you mean "no understanding of technology whatsoever". You give them far too much credit.
