Nice try, bud, but wrong. Oil DOES seep out of the ocean floor from time to time, but the operative word is SEEP. The media is playing it up, of course, but they have to keep on reporting it because BP punched into a big underground reserve of oil that was under tremendous pressure, creating a gusher. By being unable to control that gusher, BP has created one of the worst environmental disasters this country has ever seen.
: The truth is, no matter what u say, it really isn't as bad as the press is making it out to be. Oil leaks out from the bottom of the ocean all the time.
: : I bet there will be lots of books about the BP oil spill. The books will be about the politics of oil, pro and con. I would expect the Fox "news" channel to be saying, "What's the harm in a little oil in the water? It will go away eventually so no big deal. Drill baby drill."
