NY Daily News Columnist: "Maybe We SHOULDN'T Clean Up The Oil Spill"

As we all well know, the cost of doing nothing is steep. That's why the phrase, "cost of doing nothing" exists, presumably.

So whenever some crisis arises, no one wants to be perceived as insensitive to the high price of inaction by suggesting that we wait and see, slow down or let things play out. Instead, we're all very quick to say, in desperate but authoritative voices, "Well, we have to do something."

After the 2008 financial collapse "the cost of doing nothing" was all anyone wanted to talk about.

We didn't know exactly what to do, but we knew that doing nothing wasn't an option. So in the end, we decided to throw a catastrophic amount of money at the problem. And good thing, too - otherwise, I'm told, unemployment might have surpassed 8%.

When it comes to the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, it seems that doing nothing is even farther outside the parameters of politically acceptable suggestions.

But since I don't have a re-election to worry about, I'm happy to go out on a ledge and be the one to say it, terrible as it sounds: Let's leave the oil right where it is.

Before you send Al Gore's minions out to arrest me, you should know that this seemingly cavalier suggestion isn't borne out of apathy or indifference, but out of pragmatism and, yes, compassion. And though I'm no oil or environmental expert, there is plenty of evidence to suggest that attempting to clean up the Deepwater Horizon spill that dumped around 95,000 barrels of oil into the Gulf will be costly and ineffective, and might even be more harmful to the natural habitat than the oil itself.

So I did a little probing - or drilling, as it were - into the consequences of doing nothing. Here's what I found:
Decades after the Exxon Valdez spill, the technology used to clean up spills is virtually unchanged: barges, booms, burning, dispersing, scrubbing.

"The basic tool kit hasn't changed dramatically, or at all," said Jeff Short, a scientist with the environmental group Oceana.

The problem with that is, these methods weren't effective then, and they aren't now. Dispersants, for one, transfer oil particles from the sea surface to the sea water in an effort to save shorelines from oil build-up. In theory, anyway.

It only works if there's significant wave energy, and even in that case, the oil that's transferred to the water column is hazardous to hundreds of other organisms.

Cornell University biologist Robert Howarth told me that dispersants should be used very sparingly, and that there are better, less toxic alternatives to the 250,000 gallons of Corexit that BP has already released into the Gulf.

Cupp is one hot white bitch and I would love it if she would let me fuck that tight asshole with my big ass dick.

That being said she right! Listen, America ain't no socialist fucking country! There are NO PROFITS TO BE MADE cleaning shit up. The government would have to force BP to do it, and we all know that ain't how the free markets work and that is some communist bullshit!

So there is nothing you can fucking do to clean that shit up. It's unconstitutional to clean up.
Fuck the Gulf of Mexico and fuck anyone that gives a shit about it.

You must live a sad and pathetic like caring about wild life all the time. Shit dies and always fucking will, nothing you can do. Eventually the entire earth will be gone because God will be taking it away. What the fuck you going to do then with no earth? Guess you are going to cry about the fucking wild life. Who gives a shit.

Kill animals to eat. Kill animals to make room for your house. Kill animals to get business done.

It is that simple you fucking retards.

Animals kill eachother all the fucking time anyhow, what you going to sit there and cry all day everyday thinking about that shit?

How about all the hunters? You going to cry about that shit too?

oh boo hoo little hippie fags. Animals are dying. Guess you should stop going to McDonalds then huh? Oh better not cut down that tree on your lawn! A squirrel might die!

THE HORROR!


Anderson Cooper is a fag. You know he leases an oil rig from BP/Transocean to pound his own asshole with.

She is right about the dispersant. It only adds to the mess.
