The upcoming elections in 2010 and 2012 will be interesting to say the least.  Something tells me "Drill Baby, Drill!" is not one of those chants that people will be using anytime soon.

So yeah, how's that government staying out of the free market thing working out?  Redundant backup systems?  What?  But that would cost extra money and would take more time to install, LOL!  Stupid environmentalist hippie faggots, go take your socialism elsewhere.  Look at all the fun we're having now!  Aren't you glad BP saved money?  Only a few more days until the hurricane season kicks off!  It's not fair that the ocean life gets all the oil, selfish bastards.  Look at how much fun that dolphin had.  He's smiling!  Hopefully mother nature provides us a fantastic series of storms, so we can share the wealth and have ourselves a fucking benzene party.  Free leukemia for everyone, yay!  Party hard, bitches.

I don't know why everyone is so upset by this oil spill. Isn't petroleum good for the skin?

I pretty much agree with Parn on this one.  I do however also think, with my strange little mind, this.  Oil is natural...so...shouldn't nature be able to deal with it by itself?  I mean, granted its not in its natural environment, but the earth could possibly do something to cause oil to be released without us humans having done it, and then who would we blame?  The storms parn speaks of..would they not possibly kill, even without oil, plenty of marine and human life?  Just something I think about, but overall I think the oil companies need a little big brother on their side, although to be honest its not like our government is the best at making sure things have backup plans and all that jazz.  Hell look at what happened with FEMA and Katrina (even though I hate to compare the two since I mean, I get its obamas big thing, possibly big slip up, but yeah).  Honestly I really hope that we can find a very reliable way to harness solar energy, since I believe, in that wierd part of my brain, that it is the most promising of all the alternative fuel sources, unless we find like..blue energy or something (V reference there)

Oil is natural... but so is cholera, small pox, and numerous other things.  Being naturally formed doesn't equate to being OK.  It takes only 1 part per million to be overexposed to benzene, one of the constituents of crude oil.  This is separate from all the other nasty shit in crude oil.  It is mind-boggling to me how many fishermen were sent out to help with cleanup, without wearing appropriate protective equipment.

Nature doesn't have a plan, it's a homicidal woman having her time of the month. This is just her period blood oozing out into the toilet we call the sea.

When environmental catastrophes happen, it's not good, whether natural or man-made. Can the Earth deal with it? Sure can, but a lot of harm to living organisms will be done in the process. Lots of economic harm, too. Is most offshore drilling safe? Yes, but when it's not, there are severe consequences. Better, I say, to increase government oversight (y'know, real oversight, not mounting and riding that shit), and reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.

Oil is natural...so...shouldn't nature be able to deal with it by itself?

Adding to what Parn said, it may be natural, and even FOOD for some bacteria and microorganisms, but this is far more than what naturally comes out. Imagine if you suddenly received enough food to fill your entire home, you wouldn't be able to eat it fast enough to clear out your home, and it get in everything and start rotting before then. Nature would likely correct itself eventually, yes, but not fast enough for us and the species dependent on those areas.

Alternative answer: oil's natural, but that burst pipe isn't!

No no, as I said its just thoughts that go through my brain, overall though as I said, I agree with Parn.  Its a shame we are not able to handle this, despite I dunno, having been drilling for oil for how long?  I also wasn't trying to say it was ok either, just pointing out that at least, unlike say, a nuclear bomb going off, this is relatively of nature.  Still not fucking good, no doubt about that.

The bottom line is that it's an ecological and economical disaster at a time when the the environment's not in great shape and the economy is still in shambles.  Gives new meaning to being "down in the brown" eh?  EDIT: So when are we all going to turn into ninja turtles now?
