Regardless of interpersonal debate, lets look at what has happened here...
First the story was that there was an accident but don't worry, no oil is spilling into the gulf.
Then there was oil spilling into the gulf, but don't worry, it's not very much.
Now there is alot of oil spilling into the gulf, but don't worry, we are taking steps.
At what point do people open their eyes? This story has been lied about since day one and yet there is a large group who still seem willing to keep
their heads in the sand.
I have one question for those who actually live in the area:
What are the underwater currents like?
Everything I see is about oil floating to the surface, slowly moving towards the shorelines. In my region we have areas where the undertow and ocean
currents have been known to grab people and objects and carry them for miles out sea; at the depth that this leak is occuring at what are the currents
How much of this oil is being drug way out of the area before it ever hits the surface? Are we going to hear at some point about a mysterious oil
slick seen by pilots in the middle of the Atlantic? I can't help but think about the garbage patch in the Pacific where all the crap thrown into the
oceans is accumulating (something that is also WAY under reported).
I live in Atlantic Canada, if this gets really bad (like there are reliable estimates that it will) not only will the fisheries in my area be affected
(some of the richest in the world btw) but the tides will bring this stuff into my community; the geography of my area will act like a natural funnel,
everything that comes up the coast will end up on my doorstep.
One more question: All the focus is on this one leak, but it is admitted that there are at least two more, when are we going to get information on
Or is that being held in reserve, to be included in a future story update?
