do you remember the bp disaster?
what if they'd had other means to clean? cnn reports:
Oil companies could soon be using an innovative new technique involving nanotechnology and magnets to help clean up offshore oil spills.
Oil spills from container ships or offshore platforms are a frequent hazard to marine and coastal ecosystems and an expensive one to clean up. BP expects the Gulf of Mexico oil spill in 2010 -- the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history -- to cost it $40 billion.
since greed will not vanish, since we apparently will never be able to put our own ecosystem ahead of cheap energy, we are going to need real solutions to the disasters that will be coming.
i do believe in science.
i'm not so sure that, in my lifetime, science is going to be able to find all the answers.
but i am thankful for any and all answers science does find.
i wish we lived in a world where those of us who grasp that this is our only world and that we have to take care of it, i wish that those of us who know that were in the vast majority and that pollution and destruction were as outrageous as racism is.
and i think my daughter may see those days but i really don't think i will.
let's close with c.i.'s 'Iraq snapshot:'
