“This really is a disaster, unfortunately.”
No damn way and neither was Valdez!!!!
OK, I am just a bystander and have no special knowledge of the area nor the oil industry. You do. So question, please. Was there that much oil washing up on the coast when you were a kid? Those enviro programs about the Valdez spill made it look so bad that I would never have guessed that things could be that way naturally.
I did not mean to offend you, I just have never heard anyone talk about that nor have I ever read it anywhere.
I’ll bet you very few people know that. The ironic thing about what you said is that the whole area is a lot better off today BECAUSE of the oil rigs in the Gulf, even with the rare spill like this one. I wish someone would write an article about it and come up with some old photos that showed what it looked like with the natural oil to prove it.
