No I do not, but I also don't live in Florida, and I still don't believe we should drain the Everglades and put up condos there.

And according to Wikipedia, there have been 31 oil spills in the past 20 years, including the spill in the Kalamazoo River, which was tar sands oil (just like the Keystone Pipeline is supposed to carry), which, when spilled, sinks to the bottom, and cannot be cleaned up by conventional means.
