    The Exxon Valdez spill is still not cleaned up. It is still causing problems in Alaska.

Way to go.
    Please start a thread on Bush and provide some evidence for a change that supports your silly allegations.

    It does not apply here.
    Like I said this well is 5000 feet below sea level. They don't inject steam into wells this deep. And the oil will naturally find it's way to the surface just like natural crude leaks from the ocean floor all over the world.. If they don't stop it soon it will be worse than Exxon Valdez.

    Even if your baseless say-so were accurate, even if the spill is worse than the Valdez....it doesn't matter. This is not a big deal. The amount of oil spilled is negligible. The economic damage is trivial AND will be reimbursed by BP anyway.

    Trivial? Negligible? It's already a third of Exxon Valdez.
    This is why I despise right wingers. They don't care about Americans or America. They will destroy the environment for profit.

    I am as about as independent as one can get. I am a fiscally conservative, gun owning, socially liberal, environmentalist. I have voted republican as much as democrat.

    Independents have a variety of views. That's what make us independents.
