The sheer amount of oil released and sunk by dispersant is mind boggling and will no doubt resurface for many years to come, forming these slicks and
continuing to inundate the gulf and shoreline with both oil and dispersant mixed together. A more pervasive, sticky and toxic ooze could not have been
dreamt of by Pandora herself.
Its a real shame too cause we needed that oil to burn in our internal combustion engines to get us to work to produce more goods that we need to use
our paychecks to drive around and buy. On the one hand we are mad at the company who screwed up this delicate drilling operation so deep, but they
were only risking drilling at that depth to fill the insatiable need we all have for that very same oil.
As long as we line up to fill our tanks ( me too ), then I don't see any way to prevent disasters like this from happening in the future. One ocean
down, six more to go..
