Gulf spill: Salazar reassures over oil drilling pause

Read entire article here:

" US Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has told a senate panel that a six-month moratorium on deepwater drilling will stay in place until safety is assured.

But he sought to reassure senators that the moratorium - imposed after the huge Gulf of Mexico spill - was a "pause" rather a permanent halt to exploration.

Coast Guard Adm Thad Allen said the amount of oil captured from the leaking well could almost double by next week.

President Barack Obama has criticised BP's efforts to deal with the spill."
Note: Geez I'm glad he criticized them, that'll do the job. Either this isn't really a disaster or the people responsible for representing the public are a bunch of lackeys for the oil companies. It is so obvious that we are in trouble - our Republic that is.
