Rabbitte adopting a short-sighted approach to offshore oil and gas resources

Colm Rapple - Irish Mail on Sunday

Labour minister Pat Rabbitte is doggedly going ahead with his intention to grant more offshore exploration licences on the basis of the flawed objective of encouraging more exploration activity.

Some exploration is necessary to achieve that result but maximising exploration won’t necessarily maximise the return.

Actions are constant, sometimes 3 or 4 in a day

Between lock-ons, mass trespasses, lorry climbing and a breach of security at Shell's refinery, this week brought a lot of people out protesting. Locals who haven't been out on the roads in years have come out this week, and momentum is building.
