Where no one has drilled before

I knew I was reading the news on my must-read list of blogs. So why did I have the eerie feeling that I was reading an act out of    Eugene Ionesco’s theatre of the absurd?

First this from Reuter:

“A U.N. report has criticized Shell and the Nigerian government for contributing to 50 years of pollution in a region of the Niger Delta which it says needs the world’s largest ever oil clean-up, costing an initial $1 billion and taking up to 30 years.”

And then this report from the L. A Times 

Shell Exploration was conditionally cleared Thursday to proceed with the most ambitious oil and gas drilling program ever attempted in the U.S. Arctic...”

 Anyone still likes to play connect the dots?
