Don't let anyone tell you offshore drilling is safe, or that it has no costs.

At least 500,000 gallons of oil — nearly 12,000 barrels — spilled into the ocean and tidal wetlands along the Texas and Louisiana coasts after Hurricane Ike ripped up oil platforms, and ruptured tanks and pipelines, according to an Associated Press investigation.

That's about 5% of the oil spilled due to Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
