What do you think people would say?

Nothing rude about that question.
My honest face to face opinion.
There will be one faction, that will have an awakening to the real ruthlessness of the universe we live in. The same awakening they had when people
seen the comet crashing into one of our neighboring planets. Those people will just accept it as something beyond human control. They will just deal
with it the best they can, and get on with their lives.
There will be one faction that will be declaring it to be a sign from god of the coming end of the world. When the seas run black. Just like they are
already doing with this one.
There will be one faction that will declare that it’s a sign from mother nature that she is getting angry at us. Basically the same as the pre
stated one, just take out “God” and put in “gaya” a different religion/god, same concept.
There will be a faction that states that the earthquake was caused by people pumping oil out of the ground, and that we should stop all oil recovery
And there will be people that will excited at a once in a lifetime event, and will be excited to see nature in action.
You have seen many of those positions already stated on this forum/thread.
Of those groups, you will have subgroups.
One that will want us to try to plug the hole in the ocean floor, by any means necessary. However futile it may be.
One group that will want us to try to capture the oil as it comes out. (Real big dome anyone?)
One group that will want us to not touch it, because it’s an act of nature/god and we should just take our punishment.
One group that wants people to leave it alone, so they can see how the environment handles it on it’s own.
And finally, there will be a group that understands that if we don’t extract the oil under controlled conditions, it will just leave it down there,
as a ticking time bomb. So the only way to make the situation safe is to pump it out of the ground fast as possible. To prevent the next big natural
