The next time you hear politicians on Capitol Hill calling environmental regulations on the energy industry needless overkill on an industry that poses no serious threat to man or beast, please refer to the following two headlines from this week’s news:
- More massive tar mats from BP oil spill discovered on Louisiana beaches
- Dolphin Health 'Grave' After BP Oil Spill
The Deepwater Horizon gusher was capped off the Louisiana coast almost 2.5 years ago, but as the folks in this neck of the marsh say, “The oil may have stopped flowing, but the spill isn’t over.”
(Full disclosure: The wetlands of southeast Louisiana have been my playground, office, and place of worship most of my life.)
No one on this coast is really surprised.
