You wont be singing the same tune in a couple of years...
So far the consequences of this spill have been what, exactly ? A few dirty beaches ... that's a shame. Dead fish, dead birds. That's a shame. A bad odor on the coast ... well, pardon me ... go inland or close the windows.
At least you've got the comfort of knowing the relief wells will be drilled, the leak stopped, the clean up carried out and within a few years you wouldn't even know there'd been a spill ...
Perfect...you couldn't epitomize the attitude of the human race any better if you tried.
Nice thread. It's not affecting me, so I don't want to hear about it.

You are not only ignorant, but extremely rude and arrogant. If the oil doesn't stop, and huge clouds of oil reach your shores via the ocean conveyer, will you still have this outlook? What about if the composition of oil in the water changes the weather effecting the entire midwest(where massive amounts of the world's food is grown)? what if the loss of so much oil under the crust causes massive earthquakes? How many lives need to be lost for this to be a tragedy in your opinion? What about when public backlash cause so much environmental regulation that you can't even piss outside anymore? This problem was caused by someone with no doubt the same intelligence as yourself.
You my friend, are an "censored".
