Burn baby Burn: Gulf Coast update

So, the powers that be have decided that the only thing they can do to make sure the spilled oil from the offshore drilling platform collapse doesn’t reach the shore…is to burn the oil.

Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Devil and the deep blue sea comes to mind.

If they take time to review more options, the slick will hit endangered shallows in the gulf off Louisiana and other states. That’s bad.

But I’m thinking, isn’t the Gulf a major corridor for migrating birds and isn’t a lot of that migrating happening…well, NOW.

PBS does a pretty good overview of the situation.  The talking heads insist that when they first told us nothing was leaking that they really thought nothing was leaking.

  1. Why don’t States that have tributaries that feed into the Mississippi River and those States that operate damns along the Mississppi River open the flood gates and allow the mighty Miss do it’s real job! Let that river vomit into the Gulf Of Mexico once again and keep the oil slick at sea! Fight the current of nature with nature itself and contain the slick away from the important Wildlife sanctuaries and fisheries that are vital to the region.
