De Minimis damage edition


  "If you're worried about coastal restoration — if you're worried about the sustainability of this area, I wonder why you're worried about a scrape on a heart attack patient." — Louisiana "coastal czar" Garret Graves at a Nov. 21 meeting, defending the state's oil and gas industries while suggesting the blame for coastal erosion more properly lies with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Graves was attacking the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority-East's (SLFPA-E) lawsuit against Big Oil. During the same argument against the SLFPA-E suit, Graves also compared the energy industry's massive damage to coastal Louisiana to a neighbor's dog "pooping" on his front lawn.
