Oil reaches Louisiana shores - The Big Picture - Boston.com
#38 is pretty depressing
Shit, this is just awful. I'm dumbfounded that this hasn't been stopped. How did they not have a fall back plan for just this type of situation? Why weren't plans in place prior to this?
just cant look....sorry....its all depressing....and there were 'plans' but alas the 'plans' were altered and fucked with to the point that the 'plans' ie the shut off values no longer work.
i am sick of hearing people say the oil will vanish...nature will take care of it..blah blah how fucking stupid are you people? blah....the oil will not go away...it will destroy the entire gulf coast line...it will destroy the lives of many and what is being done...not a fucking thing....why is it in the interest of politicians and big business to destroy an entire coast line?
follow the money...see where the money goes.
The CEO of BP should be made to swim in those waters.
I doubt anybody WANTED this to happen.
BP just didn't want to spend the money it would have taken to prevent this.
Penny wise and dollar foolish of them, wasn't it?
Reading rants about the oil spill every other thread is what's depressing.
I agree. But all of us who rely on oil, either directly or indirectly are a little bit guilty too. This is a reminder that we need to keep working towards using less destructive energy sources.
Maybe you are just depressed.
Thanks Blu. Those are some hella detailed photos. Depressing as hell but gives us a small scope of what is happening down there. I hope we get this capped soon.
