Going a bit OT into BPland

It’s a testiment to humanity’s terrestrial bias that the BP-produced daily “Oil Impact Assessment Map” shows only the impact on beaches, rather than the vast impact on the sea. Even the U.S. government data is just based on testing of water “near shore.”

I could have sworn the U.S. was the world leader in deep-water studies, with buoys all over the Pacific and a big fleet of submarines. It’s almost as if they don’t want to know how bad things are.

    I assume the seabed has basically been “carpet bombed” by this pollution. A petro-chemical waste-land. Since we don’t know much about the ocean depths, we’ll probably never know the real impact of this disaster. It can’t be good.
    Then up the food chain we go.
