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.
