What are your thoughts on the Gulf BP oil spill?

Blaming seems to be the national pastime.

Especially when we feel powerless.

Considering how physically leveraged an offshore rig is, I’m surprised this hasn’t happened earlier.

And there is the crucial distinction between short term and long term solutions.

We need to do a better job of mobilizing our capacity to stop the leak. If we can put men on the moon….

We also need to make sure BP pays for this.

And, of course, we need to find a different way of getting and using energy. Oil will always be dirty and oil will always spill.
