I find it so funny that people minimize the effect of Valdez just to try to magnify the effect of the Gulf spill. It was TEH HORRORZ when it happened back in '89 but now everyone is saying "oh it wasn't that bad".
Just goes to prove my point that this, too, will pass.
You know what we used to call a marsh or wetland?
A SWAMP. A big stinking useless swamp.
You know what we used to do with Swamps?
DRAIN THEM, build DIKES, and then we built NEW ORLEANS.
Yeah well that didn't work out too good either.
I'm sorry I just can't get too worked up about this. I've spent some time fracking around in swamps... they're intresting I guess, but they'll survive and regrow and who really cares...
