Like I said, you see something, you have your own explanation, you find evidence you think that supports it. It's how any good research is done!
Yeah, real research is "I saw something kinda sorta like it first hand once. Therefore it's always cataclysmic everywhere."
The sad part is you think this is a risk you can just turn on or off. In reality less domestic drilling and pipelining equals more supertankers floating around the coasts. And if history has shown anything, it's that an accident with one of those things is when the SRHTF.
Oh and there's that whole middle class/jobs aspect you claim to care so much about.
