I just read this article and I’m not sure what to think about trying to clean BP oil spill-affected birds. I guess we have to, for the few that might make it.
When we were on vacation, I read in a newspaper about how people are placing wagers on which species will be the first to go extinct because of BP’s oil spill and failed containment efforts. Some people were betting on Kemp’s Ridley Turtles, others on Bluefin Tuna.
The whole concept of betting on extinctions makes me sick. It’s so morally reprehensible. Is this a sign of our times?
