I don't mean to upset anyone.
60000 barrels a day?
I wish people would stop getting hysterical about a little oil gushing out.
I am just trying to put it in perspective.
look at this from an official source.
"The area of the World Ocean is 361×106 km2 (139×106 mi2) Its volume is approximately 1.3 billion cubic kilometres (310 million cu mi). This
can be thought of as a cube of water with an edge length of 1,111 kilometres (690 mi). Its average depth is 3,790 metres (12,430 ft), and its maximum
depth is 10,923 metres (6.787 mi) Nearly half of the world's marine waters are over 3,000 metres (9,800 ft) deep. The vast expanses of deep
ocean (anything below 200 metres (660 ft) cover about 66% of the Earth's surface. This does not include seas not connected to the World Ocean,
such as the Caspian Sea.
The total mass of the hydrosphere is about 1,400,000,000,000,000,000 metric tons (1.5×1018 short tons) or 1.4×1021 kg"
Your 60000 barrels is nothing compared to that...it is not even a faucet it is literally a drop in the ocean.
I think there is just too much media inspired hysteria about this.
For your information I don't go fishing with my son It is very boring.I don't even like fish that much, it has a mushy taste and it stinks awful. I
just have the occasional fish and chips and if I wanted fish I just go to Walmart.
All these creatures you keep going about I don't really want to see them in person.They are quite dangerous and many died from their stings.
Plenty of them on Discovery channel safely behind a thick glass screen.
I don't see what so special about turtles.They are an evolutionary dead end.
Maybe you like turtle soup but I have never tasted it or even want to.
It is the same way for all.
As my Uncle Ted says If you can't cope with change you die or are extinct.Simple.
That why White Man triumphed against the Red Indians.They could not compete with our technological prowess and our ambition and drive.
They were content to ride on their horses and never advanced.
Man is the top dog on this planet.We have advanced.The oil spill is nothing as I proved above compared to the total volume ocean.
Your figures for thousands of lost jobs makes no sense.The jobs are not lost really as other jobs have been created in their place by the fanatics
going on about this clean up which I don't agree with anyway.
Also your poo pooing of the Terror Threat is dangerous as everyday on the news terrorists blowing up people.Just imagine if these people were over
You would not be so complacent then and we must remain vigilant against these barbarians and not waver from our fight against Terror.
