Second Line!

By mike flugennockFriday - September 10th, 2021Categories: environment

So, after getting the worst of Hurricane Ida, Louisiana is about to get the worst of the still-ongoing oil spill from somewhere in the thousands of miles of decomissioned and abandoned pipeline — previously owned and operated by who the hell knows who — on the bottom of the Gulf Of Mexico.

“The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement has allowed the offshore oil and gas industry to leave 97 percent of pipelines (18,000 miles) on the seafloor when no longer in use” since the 1960s, said a report issued by the Government Accountability Office earlier this year.

It’s as if they’re getting two hurricanes down there.

Climate Consensus (Bipartisanship no. 3)

Just so we’re clear, here: The GOP thinks climate change is a hoax, and the Democrats think Putin can shut off our power and freeze us to death by remote control.

Oh, yeah, and the Amazon rainforest — which provides 20% of Earth’s oxygen — is still on fire.

Good; that’s sorted, then.

Golden Showers

So, just so we’re straight, here: Trump is pissing all over everybody, but the Democrats’ main complaint is that the GOP is behaving boorishly and insists on calling it piss – as they blow off impending global disaster and put the kibosh on a climate crisis debate.

Meanwhile, the Amazon rainforest is burning, and wildfires are raging in Africa.
The world is literally on fire and meanwhile, the Democratic Party insists “please, it’s not piss, it’s Chardonnay”.

We aren’t going to be able to “election” our way out of this. It’s time to vote in the streets.
