Come on DWT, oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico was an exceptionally large event by BP's bad practice and poorly monitored regulation, way out of comparison with an exploratory drilling in UK waters. We need more oil (besides sustainable sources) and have plenty underground. Why not focus attention on good practice, stiff regulation and sensitive ways of doing it (like BP did on Furzey) instead of throwing out the idea wholesale. Too much negativity by nature organisations in going for total banning right from the start gets you a bad press. At least from me - and I'm a member!!

Thanks for your comment. I think there are 3 issues here. Firstly we don't need more oil as we are already falling behind on our climate change targets. DWT isn't against development and industry, but the money would be far better spent on renewables. Secondly, The BP blow-out was big but even a small spill in the highly sensitive coastal area of Poole Bay would be a disaster for nature and area's economy for years to come. The risk is just too great. Thirdly this company plan to throw their drill cuttings overboard into the sea and drill in the Bay itself which is a far more damaging and risky proposition than the sensitive approach taken on Furzey.

I have also signed a petition against the proposed oil rig in Poole Bay - such a backwards thinking idea! The wind farm would have been much more sensible!
