Last night, Kim and I were watching some news footage of all of the animals caught up in the Gulf of Mexico Deepwater disaster. It was deeply saddening to watch, and we both had a tear at the end of it. Our greed has let to this. Our lust for cheap energy has led to this. We have done this to ourselves.
I know it has taken a while to comment on one of the biggest environmental disasters that has occurred due to an oil spill, but I have just been waiting for the right words to come to me. So here they are, inspired by James Lovelock’s most fitting work, The Revenge of Gaia.
I think that maybe Gaia has had enough of us and just burst out of her skin, in effect, and let cry a massive scream of ;
“You want oil, you bastards? HERE, I’ll give you all the oil you want and MORE! Come get some!”
