Just sayin’

Left: a 100-ton steel cap BP hopes will temporarily contain the leaking oil well. Right: the crumbling concrete sarcophagus Soviet officials hoped would contain the radioactivity at chernobyl.

  1. As you no doubt have heard by now, the attempt to use the cap has failed miserably. And tar blobs have now hit the beaches.

  2. This whole thing depresses the hell out of me. The BBC reported that it would could continue leaking for another two months! WTF?!

    If anything, I hope this disaster swings some moment toward renewable sources of energy and off gets us off oil. That would be friggin’ swell.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
