Green cheers for new Chevron drilling?

Is this a green blog?

The blog that calls itself "Green" at the New York Times announces with uncritical acceptance new drilling by Chevron in the Gulf of Mexico. If you want to talk to their executives, you have to be a cheerleader, and Clifford Kraus certainly is. Here's a quote from his blog, for which Green is clearly a misnomer:
"I caught up with Bobby Ryan, Chevron’s vice president for global exploration, to get his take on the announcement so soon after the lifting of the moratorium, which came in the aftermath of the blowout on a BP well that killed 11 rig workers and flooded the gulf with millions of barrel(sic) of oil. He said that despite the accident, the gulf continues to be one of the crucial areas of focus for Chevron, the second largest American oil company after Exxon. “We are going to continue to explore,” he said."
Unfortunately, there is more. Read it and you'll agree. Fresh Green Blog is a green blog -:)
