CNN has a poll up on the recent conveniently-timed oil platform whoopsie and its impact on how you feel about offshore drilling.
While the Governor of Florida would rather huddle in a cave wrapped in synthetic rabbit pelts than risk a spill, most people seem to understand that, for the foreseeable future at least, we still need the dinosaur juice even if it means the occasional un-photogenic seabird. Once we get enough nuke plants online, we can throttle back on the drilling.
Personally, while most people are wringing their hands about getting oil on their seabirds, I'm freaking out because they're getting seabirds in my oil. A couple of baby albatross feathers will clog up a fuel filter like you wouldn't believe.
