the oil spill in the gulf of mexico made the front page of huffpo today with some terrifying images of the destruction to the native wildlife, many of which came from Greenpeace who flew down there to document the disaster.
but these two striking photographs of the drilling platform on fire with the simple caption “the cost of offshore drilling” infuriate me for condoning the oil industry at all by driving a gasoline powered vehicle. seriously. looking at these pictures makes me want to kill my car and get an electric car right the fuck now.
who sees these as an acceptable loss?
