Handbasket Report — Oil Kills

Shortly after the Gulf oil spill began, a viral email hit many blogs. Purportedly by an engineer with 25 years experience, it suggested the possibility of a terrifyingly dire outcome for the world. I couldn’t cross-reference it, so I didn’t mention it.

Unfortunately, mainstream media sources are now pumping out articles where well known authorities are predicting possibilities not unlike that from the person who said he/she was an engineer.

Here’s one: “What the Spill Will Kill”

Reading this, I thought it might be a good time to reread Peter Ward’s Under a Green Sky.

And I was worried about methane from melting permafrost.

Silly me.
