The Gulf spill is not Exxon Valdez 2.0

There's only like a million things wrong with that Greg Medred article. Makes me wonder whether he was in a hurry and typed up a contrarian article about an issue he hadn't researched, or if he's getting paid industry $$, or if he's just an idiot.

Anyone remember the ADN outdoor writer, Mr. lover of nature, who got caught illegally taking over his bag limit of salmon? I think we saw his true colors then. The ADN job didn't hold out, so this must be his new paid gig. If we stuck his hands in a bathtub I'm sure we'd see a oil sheen spread outward.

Since Tar Balls have been found on the beaches in Key West already, I think it is past "slipping into the loop current" and already well into it at this point.

EOU,

So far the Keys tar balls seem to be from another source, not the BP gusher.

I wonder what Shell or BP would do if they had a blow-out in the Arctic Ocean under sea ice. Seems like it would be much more difficult to get at.

According to this: http://www.zerohedge.com/article/guest-post-white-house-covers-menacing-oil-blob

...the Key West tar balls are from the leak, but quite frankly, that source is a bit iffy.
