oil spills

the oil spills that occurred in san francisco's bay area and the other one in the black sea are ecological nightmares. it is estimated that 30,000 birds have died as a result in the black sea region.

the environmental dangers that arise from the spills are nothing new or shocking to ponder. but what i continue to be startled by, is how quickly blame will slide away. the oil companies will hire lawyers, lobby governmental figures, and repercussions will be slim. if any other commodity was dumped into the our earths water, don't you think their market would plummet?

it is a commodity that causes our nature plummet.
