CNN.com has good info on it.  what you said is one of the reasons it pisses me off so bad, nobody really didnt hear about it, really wasnt reported on.

anyway heres some info that i know.  i dont really know what happened to cause the damage, but the Prestige carrying 70,000 tons of fuel oil ran into problems off the coast of La Coruna Spain. the ship wasnt allowed to dock anywhere for some reason, dont know why.  so it sat out in the ocean leaking oil.  they had some tug there to try to keep it a float, and tried to clean the oil up.  then last tuesday it brock in two and sank.  in the leaking and sinking it lost about 20,000 tons of oil.  so the rest is sitting onthe bottom of the ocean just leaking away.  the amount of oil on the ship is twice that of the Exxon Valdez.  wonderful thought isnt it?

This is one of the reasons why I can't understand people keep saying that we shouldn't drill for oil here in America (in Alaska, or wherever).  The damage caused to nature by drilling oil is minimal, especially when compared with how much potential for damage there is with sending oil tankers halfway across the world.

You know environmentalist never say the good things about off shore oil rigs. The biggest enviromental advantage is that they create artificial environments for animals to live, including corral. They are also good for studying the ocean because they stay in one location for years.

Yeh, rusting Steal and iron is a great coral reef compared to natural ones. THen again I don't see evidence fish use them when in fact there are less life around them due to the sounds generated by them.


The thing is its a shame we still use fossil fuels when we have had the technology to get off it for so long.

A foul will argue change isn't needed.
 Choice:

     1. Continue using fossil fuels that are known for a FACT to cause polution and harm the enviroment.
 
     2. Use the technology we have and force corportate companies such as Exxon, to make the change. Benifiting life on this world.

 What is the logical choice?

 In America, money wins, logic is ignored. We are the highest contributor of the issue.

You state the bible condems Gay love. But the also also allows slavery and states woman serve their husband and are less then them, but you do not obey that? It is clear the bible has been rewritten by man, and the word of god is lost.
