I guess that oil spill is going to about ruin the entire eastern
Seaboard. In upper central American we are being apprised that the
4.5million waterfowl that are born here migrate to southern Louisiana
and we may lose most of them. How does the coast in Mississippi look?
We are getting videos of Tarballs in Florida, soon to be followed by
actually oil. This is a fuck up of major proportions and the onlyfolks I
can reasonably fault is the Greeners and the administrations that
mandated offshore drilling in deep water when we have so much oil in
Anwar and the Williston Basin. More thaen All the MR put together and
virtually untouched. I expect BP will go to the wall in getting this
eventually stopped. After all they owe us big time for saving BP'd ass
in Kuwait and the rest of the MR. None of that oil we went to war over
was ours. I wonder if those coasts will ever come back in my lifetime?
It appears that we will also lose Giant loggerhead Sea Turtles among a
ton of other things that live in the sea. Seems that waltwater Croc is
also down the drain.
On the radio, I heard someone say the beaches are fine, it's the media
that's hyping the matter out of proportion. Who to believe? The slick
talkers in the media, or the dipsticks who are feeling a bit low on
Oil vay is mir!
No Chris it is more serious then actually is shown,
I have relatives that are oyster fisherman in Louisiana
and they lively hood is gone for years to come.
and is very small part what is real potential of loses
for future of fisherman in /on Gulf cost and needless
to say effect on wild life.
You are looking at around 6 billion dollar industry
that came to virtual instinction for years to come
it is really bad.
Not accounting beaches resorts loses from Mexico cost line
to Eastern cost perhaps all the way to Delaware!
Estimated cost of closing off the plume and clean up alone will exceed
$70 Billion. Damaged business and living coast..plus the damage to the
sea's ecosystems plus the impact on land animal, fowl, plants and
virtually every life form is a huge unknown cost. It will take decades
and maybe hundreds of year to get some things back to normal. Some
things are now gone forever. Don't take it out on BP. It is Governments
and the Greeners that forbid drilling on land..Such as Anwar and the
Williston. There are over 4,000 existing deep water oil rigs in
operation now. Who in the Hell ever decided that drilling for oil in
5000 ft of Sea water instead of Slant drilling or drilling on known land
reserves, should be shot. It is a fact that a disaster such as this had
been anticipated but poo-pooed by the politicians and big money boys.
It is time that the Engineers get listened to and those that ignore the
warnings and get us all into this mess should be treated as mass
murderers. The Eastern seaboard is a goner for the foreseeable future.
