This picture overlays the Deepwater Horizon oil spill onto the San Francisco bay area. It is a very visual way to see just how much of a disaster the spill really is. It’s staggering just how many BP Oil executives have donated their personal fortunes to help fix the worst oil disaster in the history of the world. That number, of course, is zero. Something else that’s staggering is the ratio of criminal charges brought against BP to the number of charges against those protesting offshore drilling. That number, of course, is zero divided by something very large.
This whole thing makes me sick.
