Al Gore Worried About 27,000 Potential Gas Leaks Beneath Gulf Of Mexico

A recent AP investigation has Al Gore shakin’ in his boots. And to be quite honest, we’re pretty worried, too!

The investigation finds that, “More than 27,000 abandoned oil and gas wells lurk in the hard rock beneath the Gulf of Mexico, an environmental minefield that has been ignored for decades.”

The AP found “particular concern” with 3,500 neglected wells that are classified as “temporary abandoned.” But temporary is a funny word. In fact, three-quarters of these wells have been left in that status for more than a year, and many since the 1950s and 1960s. Yikes!

“These are 27,000 potential environmental catastrophes waiting to happen,” said Gore in a post on his blog. “We need action now – not only to make sure these wells are safe, but also to move away from fossil fuels, so no more wells need to be drilled.”

We concur!
