My friend, Robby, pointed me to this article about a possible mass extinction brewing in our Gulf of Mexico. I don’t want to belittle the seriousness of the oil spew occurring in the Gulf and I don’t want to let BP off the hook in taking full responsibility for all the damage they have done, but it is a little difficult for me to believe that drilling a six inch hole through the sea bottom is going to result in a blow out of the ocean floor that will release the methane gas bubble this article talks about.
But what do you think about this? Am I wrong in dismissing the theory as I am? Could this really be serious or is it just the thing that Hollywood disaster movies are made from?
