Smeggy Smurf: wingnut396: Smeggy Smurf: meat0918: I thought tar balls were a daily occurrence before the oil spill, because of underwater oil seeps?

Shut up.  Just shut up.  You and your facts.  Goddammit we're supposed to be panicking

Yes they are.

But the BP spill is still impacting the coastal wetlands in Louisiana and Mississippi.  The spilled oil is still killing grasses and helping to erode the already fragile marshlands.

It's a good thing the earth has never been damaged before.  Imagine if a 5 mile rock was to hit the Yucatan.


You're right.  Thanks for opening my eyes.  I'm going to start just tossing my trash, used motor oil, sewage on my front lawn because fark it, there was once a huge mass extinction event so we may as just not farking try.  Thanks again for taking that load off Smeggy Troll.

Are any of those tar balls from the annual natural seepage of 100,000 tons of oil into the Gulf?

Could these flesh-eating bacteria be the same ones which were supposedly consuming the oil?

Oh good lord. Anyone who has lived near a beach where there is any shipping traffic within several hundred miles can tell you that tar balls wash up on the beach all the time. There is no what of knowing whether these tar balls are from the Deep Water Horizon spill or not, since leaky oil rigs and tankers are all over the Gulf. Tar balls on Gulf beaches have been common for several decades.

TFA: "While the media and public believe that the effects of BP's Deepwater Horizon Blowout and Oil Spill have been largely eradicated,"

I think it's more like "the media and public have lost any interest in BP's Deepwater Horizon Blowout and Oil Spill."
If you did a poll asking whether the disaster was *actually* cleaned up and/or safe, you'd probably find most people *don't* think the threat has been largely eradicated.
They just don't really care.

You have to be pretty delusional to believe that a spill that lasted from April 10 - August and dumped 205.8 million gallons of oil into the gulf is just going to up and disappear.
