This is a reader comment responding to Jim Kunstler’s latest blog post.
“the Deepwater Horizon disaster (still ongoing) has gotten so boring to the editors of The New York Times that further news about it has been banished from the front page of the paper. Too depressing, I guess.”
If it’s depressing now, what will it be three months from now ? It will take at least that long to drill a relief well. Question: what happens if the relief well blows out too ? Or doesn’t work ?
The northern Gulf of Mexico is going to turn into a vast stinking toxic lagoon that will snuff out every form of life in and around it. The hurricanes will come and blast oily water all over every town and hamlet up and down the coast. Everything and everyone will reek of stinking oil. Maybe this is the way it all ends. Peak pollution.
