    Plus, drinking a glass of seawater is bad for you whether there is a sheen present or not.
    Especially anywhere near the mouth of the Mississippi. A light sheen on the salt water would be one of my lesser worries...

    Slowly destroying our earth. Hopefully this get under control ASAP, this is the last thing the Gulf needs.
    Do you understand that natural leaks of this sort have been taking place since before Mankind even discovered oil, much less found a use for it and begun any efforts to extract it?

    Mankind is not causing them, and there is nothing that Mankind can do to prevent them.

    You might as well cry and whine about how we are “destroying the earth” because tornados and earthquakes and volcanoes happen.

    I think there's a very good chance that you will find the information at this link to be very useful.

    You know the sun is converting one element into another, who's to say that isn't having long term adverse effects on the solar system? How do we know that converting wind into electrical energy isn't causing some problem we haven't seen yet. Apparently it's already been shown to cause noise pollution, and the generators are creating health problems for people living near by. All energy is basically converting one form into another.

The earth does spout plenty of poisons and there is no reason we need to help it along.
    And I think everyone agrees with that in general (conservatives aren't for destroying the planet as we're painted to be), but this is a relative non-story.

    It is a complete non story, it just fits the liberal media agenda so it get thrown out there to upset people that know nothing about energy sources.

    Historically, the regulatory agencies are as corrupt and inept as the industries they are supposed to be controlling.

    I agree, I didn't mean to make it appear as if I was contending that point. They have been very corrupt and because of it we haven't realized much in the way of actual regulation. Still, it is necessary to have it in order to ensure proper and safe operation.
