You (oil) are the ones creating the false dichotomy between environment and jobs. It amounts to blackmail. If you won't allow us to come into your home and shit on your heirlooms, we're going to take our big bag of coins -- from which we throw a few pennies to blue collar workers -- away. Fine. Go. Someone else who knows how to act will come along. We all know you're bullshitting anyway. You've never walked away from money a day in your life.
The Fortune 500 Companies (including non-oil-related companies) left New Orleans because of corruption . . . not environmental lawsuits. The Oil Companies don't have a defense, other than to act offensive(ly).
