This is awful.
Horrible pictures to see indeed.
It is being covered quite heavily on BBC world service radio,and has been their top story for a couple of days.The have experts on saying things
"the seriousness of this event is hard to put into words,"
"This could dwarf the Exxon valdez spill in alaska"
"Slick is now the size of JAMAICA,and is hitting the shores now"
"I'm hearing the oil could flow for 3 months"
Thats 200 000 gallons a day-FOR 3 MONTHS.
I thought it sounded apocalyptic for the marine environment,and thus the sea food industry of the coast.
The Government over there do seem to be taking their sweet time over this-reminds me of Bushco during Katrina.
They should have thrown all resources at this from day 1 IMO,feds,military the whole lot.No question.
Me being conspiracy minded,and this being ATS I would have to say there could be a reason for the lack of both action by the government,and lack of US
Could they be as sick as to let this turn into a bigger catastrophe than it needs to,not only to inflate fuel prices,but also to use as a form of
catalyst to usher in a whole new set of "green" laws?
We know the whole green agenda is being exploited by other "nwo" type groups such as the trilateral commision/bilderbergers/UN etc.
Maybe this could be the environmental "pearl harbor" that they have been waiting for?
