Oil rigs aren’t all bad.
Unfortunately, when most of us think of oil rigs in the ocean, we think of the BP oil spill. That was a tragedy, but oil rigs aren’t all bad.
There’s a half hour video on a website for the Gulf of Mexico foundation showing some of the good things that come from the oil rigs. This video was made possible with a grant from Shell, but they’re up front about it. There’s lots of diving offshore in Texas thanks to the Flower Gardens, the Texas Clipper and all the oil rigs.
