I doubt anybody WANTED this to happen.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.
Reading rants about the oil spill every other thread is what's depressing.
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.
I guess, personally, I find pictures of animals dying in oil filth more depressing.
Every time we develop a real alternative to fossil fuel based energy in transportation, those who might lose by the impletation of that method shut it down. See what GM did to the electric trolley system we had in most American cities right after WW2. See what Chevron, with GM's aid, did about the RAV4 Electric Toyota.
Even today, with this horror continueing in the Gulf, were President Obama to introduce a bill for major R and D money to develop a battery or capacitor system for transportation here in the US, both Dems and Repubs would kill the idea. Too much Petro money in the system to allow that.
what is depressing is people would rather ignore the issue than face it....
