It’s a sick thought, but maybe a way to regenerate our oil-soaked wetlands.
First the BP spill must be quelled, Second, the birds must head back North as is their wont. Third, we need to get through the hurricane season.
Then we burn the oil-affected wetlands and start building up the land and seed the plants for the coming year. It will cost mucho bucks, but Hell, BP has said they would cover the bills.
We will also need to save as much sealife that we can right now. This will be the rebuilding of a major ecosystem. It won’t be an easy task… it will take 3 or 4 years to come to fruition.
Here on the Coast we will have to suffer through that time, but if all works right, the environment will be similar to what we had before BP fucked us over. (here in NOLA we KNOW what being fucked-over is about)
And our country must ban deep-sea drilling until the industry can prove that they can deal with mis-haps.
We OWE it to our fellow creatures that are dying because of our mistake. They didn’t create this murder, Humans did. It is our Culture’s mea culpa…
This can be set right if we get our minds straight about what must be done.
