Palin's former oil advisor: Gulf catastrophe "unprecedented" -- "True toll" yet to be revealed


Former oil advisor to Palin on hand at town hall, Walton Sun, November 26, 2010:

[Richard Fineberg was the] former policy advisor on oil and gas for two Alaskan governors, including Sara [sic] Palin. ...

“I was struck by how well informed the questioners were,” Fineberg said. “I was surprised that half a dozen asked questions on specifics, and the scientists and public officials answered in generalities.”

It is a “clear sign that more analysis and more substantive information is called for, to fully understand the implications for the Gulf communities,” he said.

Noting a catastrophe on this level is as unprecedented as the Exxon Valdez spill was in 1989, Fineberg said only time will reveal the true toll of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
