About a month ago, when everybody was running around in ever diminishing circles, wringing their hands about America’s “greatest environment tragedy of all time,” I wrote into the blog “Our Intellectual Excellence” which described how “Mother Nature” has been taking care of oil spills (or seeps) since long before there was any human civilization. It is my belief that Man is far too arrogant about his effect on the Earth in comparison to the effect of Mother Nature. The Earth is huge and Man, even mankind, is as a mote of dust upon it.
It has become apparent that this “greatest environment tragedy of all time” is but a tiny, insignificant bump in the road for Mother Nature, which she will navigate with ease. But there is another, and to man, more sinister tragedy emanating from the Gulf oil spill and that is the moratorium on drilling, now illegally, being imposed upon the oil industry. My bet is that the government in Washington, DC, following the dictum of “never letting a crisis go to waste,” will try to prevent drilling in any way possible, for as long as possible, in order to foment as much distress as possible upon the citizens of America in an attempt to anger as many people as possible. This is the way of “Change” which I am now equating with “Revolution” … the socialist revolution, some would characterize it as a modern “coup d’ etat,” that we are now experiencing.
Read the link below and then let us see if our national government, now that they know the truth, will lift its restrictions on drilling. I am betting that they won’t.
