I appreciate that. On another note, I was speaking with a guy back when the BP oil disaster happened, and apparently he was a geologist or something.
I was ranting and raving about all that oil that was dumping into the gulf of Mexico and you know what he says to me? He said that Volcanic eruptions
periodically blow holes out of oceanic oil reserves frequently, only we are not always aware of them. He told me that the ocean contains massive
amounts of oil, but most of it settles or evaporates through time.
Now at first I was like wow, that does make sense. However, I came to the realization that these eruptions probably occur miles down in the depth of
the ocean and as alot of us are aware of, those currents down there are different than the surface currents where storms spread the oil out much more.
I also told him that he most likely is correct about his theory (or fact), but that didn't remove the damage that a tragedy like that does to the
current wildlife populations of the area, nor the economic misery it causes for human beings who depend on the oceans resources in order to feed their
At the end of the day, I had to meet him half way. Not sure what I think about that other than alot of this volcanic activity in the past probably
allowed for habitat and species to recover through time. These days, it's a different ball game. Mathimatically, We are still destroying the oceans of
the world. I came to the conclusion that natural events happen much more less than human caused events. Just my take on it anyway. ~SheopleNation
