Update: my comment at Climate Progress Post: BP dealt setback
For what it’s worth, my take is that we can do no more than be spectators at a slow-moving train wreck. There is no stopping it. There is no remediation. What’s more, it is a metaphor, as alluded to by Al Gore’s article linked to on an earlier post here at CP, for the plight of our planetary ecosystems from the much vaster, if less dramatic, impacts of emissions from burning oil products.
I feel like I am watching a bunch of puny, ineffectual and petty moths frantically struggling to escape being fatally singed by the flame they are helplessly attracted to.
