A couple of videos related the the oil disaster in the Gulf: one funny and one serious.
Dr. Riki Ott is a marine toxicologist who happened to be living in Cordova, Alaska when the Exxon Valdez spilled its load near there. This morning she was on CBC Sunday Edition. This interview is worth listening to.
Another oil spill happened in the Gulf of Mexico 31 years ago. The way they handled it then is virtually the same as the way they’re handling it now. They weren’t too successful back then either.
The flagrant display of incompetence and greed shown by British Petroleum (BP) in the Gulf of Mexico right now is nothing short of sickening. It’s no wonder people hate oil companies these days. Of course they’re not all like BP, but BP isn’t helping any of them.
