Oil Vey! 1000's of Abandoned Oil Wells in the Gulf

AP investigation finds 1000's of Abandoned Oil Wells in the Gulf of Mexico.

Some were "capped" 15-20yrs. ago... with metal caps.

(Metal+Seawater? Hmm... Corrosion, Anyone?).

No One's been checking any of the abandoned wells/rusted caps for leaks.

When asked about the lack of inspection of the abandoned wells MMS stated that it uses The Honor System.

Ah, yes... MMS shirked their own serious responsibilities and shoved them onto the individual oil well-owning corporations.

Whether you call it The Honor System or Self-Regulation...

We all know how well such practices work when they involve profit-lusting corporations...

They don't.
