The oil spill is making as much noise as oil is being lost.
When facing a confusing situation, you can ignore it or convert it into a major event by releasing a cloud of “Blurred Statements” also known as BS!
For over a month we have been exposed to that cloud mentioned by the good Professor. The oil spill is a catastrophe of a magnitude that, as yet, has not been accurately assessed. In few words, it affects science, technology, health care, employment and unemployment,
Food resources and conditioning, consulting, transportation, climate, standard of living, atmospheric quality, leisure, tourism, survival of species, large scale contamination and, worse of all, it has caused a non-stop stream of non-information delivered continuously by some Television systems.
The extent and variety of this catastrophe has revealed the existence of consultants of all types whose active presence and pitiful statements can be considered a national threat to sanity and security. The absurdity of the situation is noticed in the current fixation with the volume of oil being discharged into the sea from the well. Accusations, arguments and vague theories are continuously delivered, all of them properly orchestrated by the various news services.
Everyone seems to have forgotten that the number one measure is to stop the well from leaking its precious liquid. So far, nobody has asked me how!
