    It took President Obama 24 days to finally get publicly angry and “rip” into BP and its partners for the catastrophic oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico.  What was he waiting for?  The pattern has been obvious enough: however bad you thought it was, or anyone said it was at any given moment, it’s worse (and will get worse yet).  Just take the numbers.  

    Yes, the oil spewing up from the floor of the Gulf of Mexico in staggering quantities could prove one of the great ecological disasters of human history.  Think of it, though, as just the prelude to the Age of Tough Oil, a time of ever increasing reliance on problematic, hard-to-reach energy sources.  Make no mistake: we’re entering the danger zone.  And brace yourself, the fate of the planet could be at stake.

    A New Oil Rush Endangers the Gulf of Mexico and the Planet

  1. yesterday on the local weather they had this video with graphics … review of Gulf Hurricane history past 100 years… overlaid onto the oil puddle. scary shit.

  2. That video of the hurricane tracks is pretty important.

    It would only take one big hurricane to multiply the devastating effects of the gusher, by an order of magnitude I`d think.

    What about 2 or 3 or 5 major storms.

    Goodnight Irene.
