Money can't make it right

The federal government is going out of its way to assure the public that seafood pulled from recently reopened Gulf of Mexico waters is safe to consume, in spite of the largest accidental release of crude oil in America's history.

Exclusive: Multiple independent lab tests confirm oil in Gulf shrimp

It is important to protect the economy in the gulf. BP does not have enough money to 'make it right'. In fact money can't make it right. Only Mother Nature can do that, and she will, in time. This situation is a perfect example of how much we depend on nature to support our way of life, and how we can totally screw ourselves by taking that so for granted we make stupid decisions like being lackadaisical about safety in an inherently very dangerous endeavor such as deep water drilling.

The Bush administration obfuscated scientific climate change studies we tax payers paid for. The motive? To protect the oil industry. By doing so, they may have sentenced our children and grandchildren to a hellish world. Not only the 8 wasted years, but the years it will take to overcome the damage done by the Bush era propaganda machine. That's not carelessness, that's a crime against humanity.
