    RE #10: If one is admonished to never forget the 1096 oil spill, one also needs to appreciate how many industry improvements been implemented since that time and why oil drilling today is not your grandfather 1969 environmental mistake.

    Oil has gotten too expensive to waste it and it that alone drives corporate conscientiousness, it is good enough to reconsider that past is not prologue any longer when it comes to utilizing our local resources prudently for our local benefit.
