DailyDirt: Drill, Baby, Drill!

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Hindsight makes it easy to criticize decisions that were made that, in retrospect, seem foolish. The word 'tsunami' was coined by the Japanese, and yet a nuclear power plant apparently wasn't designed to fully withstand one (and an associated earthquake). Lots of folks have asked: "How could they not see this coming?" But it's not that simple, and a nuclear power plant isn't the only energy facility that can devastate the environment. Let's not forget the BP Oil Spill. As a reminder, here are some interesting links about the Gulf of Mexico and the still-unfolding aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon disaster.

    as long as the part you see, is PRETTY..they dont care.

    They THINK' you dont care.

    Even as residual bacteria eats up the oil, it offsets other chemicals, as well as the dispersion and break down of the oil in salt water. ITS A CESSPOOL.
