gulf of mexico

I’ve avoided talking about (or posting about) the Deepwater Horizon oil spill so far, mostly because I find myself unable to contain the rage it brings up when I start really thinking about the hubris behind it (to say nothing of the longterm impact on the Gulf), but today’s Big Picture series on the disaster is too worthy to let go without repost. Check out the full series here.

To anyone who has ever un-ironically stated “Drill, baby, drill”: You may kindly STFU now.
