Did you know Walruses live in the Gulf of Mexico? BP does.

Neither did I.

But that’s what BP said in assuring the cretins in the Bush and Obama administrations that they could handle any problem that arose from their drilling.  For more on the utter depravity of this fetid company, see here.
We REALLY need the corporate death penalty.

While puzzling over the Deepwater Horizon spill vs. WWII tanker sinkings in the Gulf of Mexico (not really informative), I came across this blog page from Fabius Maximus. Good info. It includes a list of giant oil spills 1967 to Present.
Deepwater Horizon comes in at #49.
The largest spill also happened in the Gulf of Mexico in 1979–IXTOC Well #1. It released about 475,000 metric tons of oil into Gulf waters. About 24,000 metric tons of oil ended up on Mexican beaches. The well flowed for 9 months before being shut off.
Not much is available vis a vis ecological effects of this oil spill.
My uneconomic idea for penalizing BP–for every barrel of oil that flows into the Gulf from Deepwater Horizon, the price of gas comes down by a tenth of a penny.

It’s times like this I wonder how anyone can possibly support off-shore drilling anymore, with oil companies totally unconcerned about the devastating consequences should anything go wrong (and as a result, things go wrong with alarming frequency).
America is addicted to oil, and apparently, we’re willing to ignore the warning signs and completely destroy ourselves for another hit. Disgusting.

Earth Day and the Sacredness of the Earth
I think Earth Day is a particularly important moment for contemplation and commitment by us Pagans.  Often American Christian critics accuse us of “pantheism,” and in a important respect they are right.  We do find the sacred, most of us, in the earth without reference to any transcendental sp

Instructive examples on why interfaith work is a good idea
I deeply believe the problems in our country are more of the heart than of the head. Here are some youtubes courtesy of John Morehead of the Evangelical Chapter of the Foundation for Religious Diplomacy on Facebook. They speak more eloquently than anything I can write that interfaith work is a good

The controversy over Pink Slime - and what it means.
The controversy over pink slime is helping educate Americans to the fact that corporations are as beneficial to agriculture as they are to politics. Tom Laskawy put it pithily: “What pink slime represents is an open admission by the food industry that it is hard-pressed to produce meat that won’

How the "war on religion' backfired into a war on women
Here  is a really good article by Tina DuPuy on how the Republicans got themselves into such a mess with America's more intelligent women.  Left undiscussed is how the extreme pathological masculinity of both their deity and their leaders made that slip so very easy.
