We’d only just got both US parties doing our bidding (suck it, voters with a different opinion), when this happens.
See, just like with the Montara spill, and the slick following the Shen Neng grounding on the Great Barrier Reef, the real threat is the “great slick of hype” – as if it were an established fact that a toxic expanding mass of crude oil currently the size of Jamaica was some kind of serious danger to anyone. Do YOU know anyone ever killed by an oil slick? I bet you don’t. And look outside – plenty of birds and other natural things. They don’t seem bothered. Why must you be?
Oil = good. More oil, spread around beaches and wildlife = even better.
Why is nobody thanking us for all this free oil we’ve generously released for them? Ingrates.
