Furthermore, and on a good note:

Sounds like good long-term news.


Deep sea exploration by non-nationalized oil firms is certainly still an important, integral piece toward our gradual transition toward more renewable energy sources. We should all admit this..., and not merely keep burying our heads in the sand of 'no more drilling' and 'carbon taxes on only the developed countries, wimply compliant'.
