Letter To The Editor: Reply To Reply To Sen. Heinrich

By KHALIL J. SPENCER

I read James Griffin’s reply to Sen. Martin Heinrich in utter disbelief (letter). Sure, a 42,000 gallon spill is a drop in the proverbial oceanic bucket.
 
But as far as the risks of drilling offshore, and especially in the harsh waters of the Arctic, it’s not the often but small disasters that will kill you. Like Fukushima, it’s the big ones.
 
I will utter two phrases and let readers judge for themselves:
 
1. Exxon Valdez shipwreck.
 
2. Deepwater Horizion Oil Spill.
