This article is a question and answer with Mike Kelly, and includes his thoughts on the British Petroleum Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Kelly acknowledges that accidents do happen in oil drilling, but that we can neither under react nor overreact to them. Kelly believes that, after experiencing the Exxon Valdez oil spill years ago, we should have a perfected way of cleaning up the oil that is spilling into the Gulf now, and he is disappointed that we are using the same cleanup technology as we did then.
