Oh, My God --- isn't there ANY place left on earth, that isn't going to be destroyed with toxic OIL -- and having oil spills destroying all animal & plant life left upon it? Are whales & seals & polar bears & walrus & sealions --- just "expendable" creatures, to DIE just so we pay 50 cents cheaper for gas?
I remember once reading a science fiction story about the Future, when water was getting scarcer and scarcer, while the small supply left was often too polluted for human consumption. Mankind was getting near to Extinction --- but then somebody had a bright idea. They could use huge barges to haul some of the giant Arctic icebergs down to the US shoreline, and somehow control the melting, to fill up huge reservoirs built for human drinking water.
But NOW, when this dangerous scenario is becoming REAL, (extreme water shortage) -- We have the uncontrollable Greedy OIL companies racing to destroy the LAST water supplies on Earth, so they can drill for OIL, which will of course spill OIL all over those pristine icebergs, which could be used to save the human species. And now, it is even a competitive RACE to see which nation will begin drilling FIRST! And then TRY to tell Red China that the icebergs are more worth to us as "water", than a whole land full of rotten oil. And of course their drilling rigs will not only destroy all the animals habitat, but the oil will spill into the nearby ocean, killing all the sea creatures & fish that live there. GEE, can nobody grasp that it is better to use CLEAN sources of Energy? Like SOLAR and WIND POWER, that do NOT pollute anything? ----- We must either LEARN this lesson, soon, or all mankind will DIE.
