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
is any more debate necessary?
hyeonseo lee (이현서) and her amazing escape story from north korea
enjoy, and please share!
an enjoyable read on the significance behind the names that popes adopt once elected into office. it’s more than just a name and roman numeral; it carries the weight of the papacy’s vision for the future.
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!
huffington post article by michael moore about civilian troop support.
as i read the article, though I am not in the us army, i serve with us servicemen and women, and know that these truths may apply to them or those that they know. and it’s just saddening to know how a country with an entirely volunteer military can result in such little respect and actual support.
wow…for guys who promote rights to have guns (even in the wake of a series of shootings across the US), them gun lobbyists sure are sensitive when people say meany no-good things about them…
uy….disgusting. go cry me a river
wow…republican politicians have just stooped to a new low
threatening their voters/supporters into voting republican? really?!?! and this contributes to american democracy (or practical democracy in general) how exactly?!
this is despicable…despite the fact that it’s technically legal, shouldn’t a presidential candidate squirm in his seat when even thinking of having to do this?
obama, please win for the sake of sane and reasonable humans everywhere
a short, bearable, yet chilling article of the political neglect that occurred for months in the us government before the 9/11 attacks. numerous reports and warnings were sent upwards, with not so much as a blind eye or a deaf ear turned to receive them.
and, of course, when 9/11 happened, what do politicians do? deflect the blame or put the blame on someone else…
who was really at fault? and had the proper caution been carried out to preventive actions, who knows…we may not have ended up in a post-9/11 world
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…
