- Reaction score
That's why I said we wouldn't know the full extent of the damage until long after I'm dead.I'm calling total BS on the theory that the GOM is K ............... for one thing, the very microbes that 'eat' up the crude oil are at the bottom of the food chain, AND the hydrocarbons they consume go right up the food chain; right to your dinner table, and right into your kidneys & your liver .......... it's called Bioaccumulation <snip>
I sincerely hope this is less of a disaster than some feared, but having the oil "disappear", kill fewer animals NOW than expected, etc. is of little consolation to me.
Breast cancer, autism ad nauseum are on the rise, and no one knows why. Who knows where the residuals of all that evaporation (of both oil and dispersant), metabolism, and other chemical reactions are going to end up.
The "we're fine here, now, uh, how are you?" attitude reminds of Han Solo taking over the holding cell control room. He was still in some deep shit.
