On Oil Spills, Drills and Celebs

Who's to Blame for the Gulf Oil Spill?

From Newsweek:

The blame game? We've already covered this in a previous post and this is a mere rehash, via Newsweek, of the central thesis of our own view in the whole affair.

It has to do with the culture of greed and wanton neglect bestowed on the environment by predatory business practices. As our cynicism has waxed to the max, there is very little we can add to the chorus of protest going on chiefly in the United states.

If you read the article linked in epigraph, you will see that the writer has reached, thankfully, the same ironic, sarcastic conclusion that most of us have. His turn of phrase is to the point and convey to the max what most of us, rational creatures, understand as being the cause of the oil spill.

Party politics, neglectfulness, and perhaps our own lack of interest in the whole matter.

As world citizens, whenever something this important happens to Mother Nature, and it gravitates towards our shores, it suddenly becomes our interest, too. Pardon my naïvité, where is is written that they own the world's resources?

Drill, baby, drill
Spill, baby, spill
And then kill, baby, kill.

A disgruntled Louisianian

And from The Guardian

Movie star has developed a 'dream machine' that will separate oil from water to combat Deepwater Horizon spill.

Sixty days on.
