Goop in the Gulf
Chemistry Lesson # 1
Everybody knows that oil and water don't mix, but once emulsified it is tough to separate them. No amount of "sponge bob dissepants", monster fires or water-proof concrete is going to solve this environmental disaster.
Practically a Religion
So the bitter vinegar in this week's news salad is the hard reminder of our dependence on fossil fuels. The stubbornness of conservatives who refuse to move forward with a new energy policy.
Scream Bloody Murder
The good folk from Greenpeace have been telling us for years that oil corporations are not our friends. We must keep a very watchful eye on multinationals for wherever they trek calamity soon follows. How soon can they devastate our planet? News Flash, they already have!
It's the Vision Thing, Stupid.
Every year that goes by is another year behind the eight ball. Eight years of Bush/Cheney Halliburton, British Petrol and all the others that continue to get filthy rich on our dependence on oil is eight years of lost opportunity to make the needed changes to our energy demands.
So instead of seeing this....
...we see this...
and finally this.
It is a crying shame, how man will kill the thing he loves.
