A silly season story

It is now clear that things will be back to normal in the Gulf within a year – the beaches before Christmas, fishing in two months, and the shellfish industry in two years.

The oil is rapidly biodegrading and being eaten by microbes and half of the 80,000 square miles of federal waters previously closed to fishermen has already been re-opened.

Scientists such as marine expert Dr Simon Boxall say, ‘Tony Hayward was correct when he said the spill was the equivalent of a drop in an Olympic-sized swimming pool.

Another marine scientist Ivor van Heerden told Time magazine: “There never was an “environmental disaster”. There was a lot of media hype, but no evidence to justify it.”

The New York Times, Washington Post, and Time Magazine all admit the President’s xenophobic ranting was ludicrous though Hayward should not expect an apology.
