    Jackie Savitz, Pollution Campaign Director for Ocena. Jacqueline Savitz to the Obama Administration’s Decision to Lift the Deepwater Drilling Moratorium This is an incredibly disconcerting and unjustified move, that could open the door for the next great oil disaster. Oil spills are common. The question is not whether there will be another spill but when. While the recent BP spill occurred on a well permitted by a previous administration, and based on regulations that were not devised by the Obama administration, that will not be the case with the next spill. When the Department of Interior devised its three criteria to be met before the moratorium would be lifted, they seemed reasonable. The industry would have to demonstrate that it could prevent a spill, contain a spill and respond to a spill. But those criteria have not been satisfied and therefore, lifting the moratorium is premature. Whether new safety requirements will be sufficient and whether they will be followed are open questions.
