Oil spill victims?

June 3, 2010

Over 300 dead birds are likely Gulf spill victims

OIL-RIG/LEAKLOS ANGELES, May 24 (Reuters) – More than 300 sea birds, nearly 200 turtles and 19 dolphins have been found dead along the U.S. Gulf Coast during the first five weeks of BP’s huge oil spill off Louisiana, wildlife officials reported on Monday.

When did birds start becoming victims? They’re birds, not humans. You people are getting wackier every day.

I’m fine with using that word. They sure look like victims to me: GBU Editor

To A.B. — You know what’s wacky? People who are so far removed from reality that they believe they can exist outside the ecosystem.

When will a majority realize we’re all in this together? How many huge man-made disasters will it take to shake you shrink-wrapped, anti-nature rubes out of your denial? I wish you’d all pile into space shuttles and set up a sterile station on the moon where you wouldn’t have to worry about what’s a victim and what’s not.

When humans turn into machines that don’t rely on clean air, clean water & a sustainable food-chain, then we can scoff at the mass annihilation of our fellow living organisms. Until then, it’s a matter of watching the pyramid crumble beneath our feet.
