“This is clearly an environmental catastrophe,” Hayward said today in a CNN television interview. He also called the situation “a very significant environmental crisis”Of course when everyone else was saying the spill was an "environmental catastrophe" Hayward was telling us that the environmental impact was only going to be "very, very modest". So I just want to warn you all that this spill might be even worse than we imagined.
If BP is willing to classify things as a "Very significant environmental crisis", the Gulf must almost be an uninhabitable wasteland. The oil must have become a self-aware, sentient organism and is now starting to fight back; claiming the marshes for it's own purposes, seeding the beaches with tar balls that will become gruesome lumbering tar people, and dragging down ships into the murky, oily depths.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but we're in a war against the oil now. That's the only conclusion one can make from BP admitting that this crisis is bad. They certainly can't be telling the truth. They're incapable of that, as we've learned over the past month. No, this is an attempt to cover up something even more sinister. May God have mercy on our souls.
