So the hysterical propaganda was bullshit. Sea life is “flourishing” in the Gulf, because as people who actually knew something about the subject predicted, the oil got eaten up by microbes that luv the stuff.
Not to flatter myself, but I too predicted this, mainly because I have a memory that goes back more than two weeks. Back in 1979, blow out at a Pemex (Mexican State Oil Co.) well pumped an estimated 3 million barrels into the Gulf. Checking back years later–a “stunning recovery.”
But that, of course, didn’t fit the narrative of President Obama or the Church of Environmentalism to which he must genuflect. The hand wringing, the grim expressions, the “plug the damn hole!” were the modern, required theatre of the absurd. No one is allowed to rationally assess these things today, while they’re on television 24/7. Can’t look like you don’t care.
It’s nice to know things are recovering, like they always have.
I found this photo on the “Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill Blog.” It doesn’t have anything at all to do with the oil spill, but what’s your point?
