Texas Governor Perry: Oil Spill An “Act Of God That Connot Be Prevented”
Speaking to the Chamber of Commerce in Washington, Texas Governor Rick Perry warned against jumping to conclusions about the Gulf oil spill.
“We don’t know what the event that has allowed for this massive oil to be released,” Perry said alongside several other governors on a panel Monday. “And until we know that, I hope we don’t see a knee-jerk reaction across this country that says we’re going to shut down drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, because the cost to this country will be staggering.”
Perry questioned whether the spill was “just an act of God that occurred” and said that any “politically driven” decisions could put the U.S. in further economic peril.
“From time to time there are going to be things that occur that are acts of God that cannot be prevented,” Perry said.Click here for reuse options!
