Do you agree with Sen David Vitter that it is “not rational to give up on domestic offshore drilling”?

Question by “Stonewall” Buster 2.0: Do you agree with Sen David Vitter that it is “not rational to give up on domestic offshore drilling”?
http://www.cnn.com/2010/POLITICS/05/30/pol.vitter.drilling.sotu/

“”By the same token, after every plane crash, you and I should both oppose plane travel,” Sen. David Vitter, R-Louisiana, told CNN Chief Political Correspondent Candy Crowley on CNN’s State of the Union. “I don’t think that is rational.”

Vitter added that it was necessary to determine what went wrong in the sequence of events that led up to the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig on April 20 which caused the largest oil spill in U.S. history.

“We’ve going to need a lot of new technology and mandates and procedures,” Vitter told Crowley, “And I will be a big part of that effort.

“But to jump from there to say: No domestic offshore drilling, no domestic production of oil and gas … I think is a crazy leap quite frankly.””

Best answer:

Answer by Mike S
I agree

How long would it take a freighter or cargo ship to travel from New Orleans, Louisiana to Venice, Italy?

I am a fiction writer and my ususal research sources have failed me on this occasion. I’m just looking for a ballpark estimate from New Orleans to Venice with maybe one refueling stop if necessary.

It depends entirely on how fast the ship can travel. A ship that travels at 20 knots covers about 500 miles per day, and would make it from New Orleans to Venice in about 14 days. A ship moving at 10 knots would take twice the time. And so on.

Note that a realistic "refueling stop" would be the port of Algeciras, in southern Spain. That would be about 9 days out from New Orleans at 20 knots. When passenger liners traveled between the Med and NY they would stop at Algeciras before starting the trans-Atlantic "speed run".

Remember that it takes a ship 8 to 12 hours to travel from New Orleans to the mouth of the Mississippi. A "pilot" is required for that trip: http://www.crescentpilots.com/
