Louisiana Enviro-Hoax fizzling out…Enviro-Intransigents vindicated

"there's just no data to suggest this is an environmental disaster. We're not seeing catastrophic impacts. There's a lot of hype, but no evidence to justify it." former LSU prof and Marine scientist Ivor Van Heerden.

The obnoxious anti-environmentalist Rush Limbaugh has been a rare voice arguing that the spill — he calls it "the leak" — is anything less than an ecological calamity, scoffing at the avalanche of end-is-nigh eco-hype.

Well, Rush has a point.

Entire environmental intransigence here and fromTime magazine no less!

Even ABC can't dodge it!

Other enviro-intransigents--based on what they saw with their own eyes while spending an average two days a week along the La. Coast--had been hinting at this for months.

This Louisiana Enviro-hoax threatened to reach the dimensions of the Castro-Che "Guerrilla-War" hoax...Nah, actually NO farce can possibly top that ONE!

Unreal

  • I think luck (and timing) had A LOT to do with the "less than catastrophic" impact of the spill. Late April through July are the months with the lightest winds and calmest seas in the Gulf, therefore the oil mostly just sat out there for weeks with nowhere to go. By the time Bonnie hit it last week, the weathered state of the oil and Bonnie's winds and seas actually helped break it up even more.

    If this would have occurred in January, or later in hurricane season, I think the entire Gulf coast region (including S. Florida) would be singing a different tune. Of course, it's not to say that people haven't suffered from this event, therefore I really don't want to downplay this one bit.

    This disaster is almost as big as the swine flu pandemic that Obama claims today on The View to have "managed".
