An undercover investigation found taxi service discrimination against African-Americans at Los Angeles International Airport.Los Angeles World Airports dubbed it the "secret shopper" investigation. This 2005 file photo shows an oil platform in the Santa Barbara Channel off Ventura, Calif. A new analysis of drilling for oil and gas off South Carolina's coast says such energy extraction would be a net win for the state, even if production is relatively light and environmental impacts are on the higher end. But Lowcountry scientists and environmental advocates said the study doesn't change their skepticism about whether the state has any meaningful oil and gas reserves offshore - and whether it should pursue them even if they existed. Tim Considine, an energy economics professor with the University of Wyoming's School of Energy Resources, did the analysis, which looked at possible offshore drilling between Delaware and Georgia.
Accounting for the cost of carbon impacts and the chance of a spill, the benefits of offshore drilling would outweigh the costs by a 2-1 margin. Between Delaware and Georgia, South Carolina would be the second-biggest beneficiary of outer continental shelf energy exploration.
South Carolina's manufacturing base and ports in Georgetown and Charleston also makes South Carolina well positioned to benefit economically from offshore drilling. Considine said the report looks at three scenarios as far as production and three different estimates of environmental impacts, which mostly include greenhouse gas emissions and potential oil spills.

But the amount of recoverable oil and gas off South Carolina's shore is unknown and subject to a lively debate. Mitchell Colgan, chairman of the College of Charleston's Geology and Environmental Geosciences, said the analysis doesn't include the word "geology" and seems to conclude that oil and gas deposits are equally distributed off the coast - which they aren't. Duncan said there will be some visible impacts onshore at the Port of Georgetown and possibly in Charleston, "if that works out." The study did not attempt to quantify those impacts. But Davis said that aspect - where oil storage tanks, pipelines and refineries will be located - would have huge potential effects on coastal real estate values.

They sent undercover African-American officers in plain clothes to LAX to see if they would be refused taxi service - and they were."It was worse than we expected. Jeff Duncan, a South Carolina Republican who serves on the House Committee on Natural Resources, hopes the study will lead to more advanced offshore surveying and eventually leases for drilling in future years. It was five out of 25 of the attempts to get a cab were denied, which is just so unacceptable in this day and age," said Los Angeles City Councilmember Bob Blumenfield.LAWA representatives shared the results of the investigation Tuesday before the City Council's Innovation, Grants, Technology, Commerce and Trade Committee which oversees the airport.
