    Re: Oil Creeps Deeper Into Delicate Marshes

    wow

    try telling that to a 50 year old fisherman

    it will get better, but it will take generations

    just like alaska

    it'll never be the same, however, not in any of our lifetimes

    and if it keeps gushing the way it's going it'll soon be far worse than prince william sound

    i'm stunned

    the mere comparison of gulf communities with alaska's...

    I get my information from news sources, not hysterics on a message board.

    Times Online

    You were saying?

    Uhhh, don't keep up on these disasters, ehh?
    Uhh, lived next door to it. Kept up on it probably better than anyone else here.

    Only about 20 square acres are still contaminated chronically.

    A simple google search would have shown you this.
    And a closer, agenda free analysis of the information still demonstrated exactly what I said. Oh, and it was done by google, too.

    Somehow I doubt it.
    When I start giving a **** what you doubt or have faith in, I'll be sure to let you know, mkay?

    Be stunned all you want. The fact is, it's not going to be forever and if you don't want oil spills, step up and stop being an oil consumer. For some reason, I just don't think that's gonna happen though, will it?

    I'm still waiting on a full assessment of the damages, as the oil slick is still spreading.

    Also, regardless of the damages, there need to be more federal regulations on safety systems of oil rigs to prevent this from happening again. There is enough evidence to demonstrate that BP was not prepared for this at all, and the response time was a travesty. If we are going to continue drilling for oil then it needs to be done responsibly.

    Government needs to do its job and force safety regulations on the oil rigs, instead of catering to corporate lobbying to turn a blind eye. But since government is in bed with these companies I really don't see that happening. Profit over sanity.

    Now that is something I can agree with. Learn from it, take from it a lesson, but there's no need for people to devolve into fear-mongering and emotional caterwauling as if Mother Earth just got a forced hysterectomy with a rusty spoon.

    I understand that. And I'm not saying it isn't a bad situation all the way around. What I am trying to get across to you guys is that it's not permanent. It will get better in most of our lifetimes, barring some catastrophe that kills us early.

    Valdez happened when I was 14 when I lived in NC. I was fishing there when I was 29. It will get better.

    Edit: It's a thriving tourist attracting and business again. Don't believe? Call one of these guys.

    I don't think it's the same. You're not doing it commercially. The locations are different and the number of people who are dependent on the waterways are considerably different. At least those directly impacted are. The gulf coast has millions of people depending on it for commerce, tourism and their very livelihoods. You have multiple states depending on the gulf coast for a lot of different reasons. To my knowledge the accident with Valdez happened in a pretty remote area. Not many people there. Do you not think the immediate impact would thus be different? To me the difference is in the number of people being affected by this thing.

    stop being an oil consumer---now, there's a winning slogan

    hey, america, either lose the cars or forget the gulf and the millions of you who used to prosper there

    meanwhile, a mile down, if those leaks are not sealed soon, the gulf is facing an economic and environmental catastrophe on a scale not seen

    but, hey, it'll all be better some day...

    wow
