Wow.... the amount of overhype on this thread is pathetic.
This leak is nothing like Deepwater Horizon. It sucks, yes, but is nothing near as bad as BP's mess.
I would go as far as to say that this wouldn't even be covered nationally if BP's spill hadn't taken place. The only conspiracy I can see is the
one most of you have been duped with already, that government regulation is in any way a fix to a problem.
If I hear any more of this "if you disagree with me, your an agent" I am going to go ballistic. I find it sad that there seems to be an attitude
the spill to be worse in order to validate ones own limited world view.
In the immortal words of George Carlin, "The planet isn't going anywhere, we are!" The Earth has dealt with crazier stuff in its history. Humanity
is hardly even noticeable compared to what it has been through. We have a long way to go if we expect to somehow be a threat to it.
The real story is something that may never be told.
The real story is that BP's spill and this spill are going to be used to increase the power of government in the area of natural resources, and this
will incidentally benefit groups like BP.
Its like the financial regulation that they have passed and will pass. It has nothing to do with the problem
and is just there to settle the
masses and stifle competition and transparency.
