Here’s what BP doesn’t want you to know about the use of Corexit after the 2010 Gulf of Mexico spill.
a fascinating article about the agent corexit, british petroleum, and the deepwater horizon oil spill of 2010
here is an article from the huffington post talking about an interesting political alternative for president obama to fulfill those bold promises on the environment he made during his inauguration speech.
with partisanship always getting in the way, it’s tough to get anything substantive and productive done. this could be an alternative!
global warming…it’s scary how real it is at this point
from an article in the huffington post (by seth borenstein)
sometimes…i wonder if it’s already too late to do anything about this problem, which is at this point, so overwhelmingly clear that it’s a problem
a history of climate change negotiations…all within 83 seconds!
found this gem on the new york times. it’s humorous and ridiculous, but the sad thing is how true it actually is…sigh

listen up america + all developed nations!
too often, for fear of media backlash and repercussions, scientific experts shy away from using the word “cause” or “causation” or “causes” etc…
that time is gone! a new time has come — one of urgency that demands we open our eyes to the actual situation at hand. we are dealing with climate change, and it is precisely climate change that brings more devastating hurricanes and natural disasters to our doorstep.
island evacuations within the next decade?? arctic and greenland ice almost completely melting off into the ocean??
sounds like fiction, right? nope…it’s really happening…
after reading articles like this, it’s really really difficult for me to understand how some people still are so adamantly skeptical and in denial of global climate change, its global impacts, and the urgency of the matter.
if this article doesn’t convince people that business as usual can no longer be sustained, i don’t know what will.
good luck, future generations…
paul krugman from the new york times has an interesting article on oil prices, job creation, and how foolish republicans have been for claiming what they claim. they want america to drill and dig into the earth to tap untouched resources. true, we’ve left some sources alone. however, drilling has increased since the bp oil spill and us oil production has increased. yet, the more substantial causes of rising oil prices is from higher global demands and instability in the middle east.
secondly, increasing drilling operations just straight up means not that many more jobs, unlike what republicans claim.
so why are republicans saying all this? read to find out!
