The fact is that this spill is destroying people's way of life. Jobs passed down for generations. This is destroying families. The Earth will survive, she has had much worse dealt to her than a paltry oil spill (and yes it is paltry in the big picture). Those families may not. Be concerned about that.
And to the OP, humans are humans and they'll turn anything into a way to benefit themselves. This is what got us pretty much everything we have today. It's ugly, sure, but it works.
