Our Beautiful Eco System
Has adapted once again.
The numbers don't lie: two weeks ago, skimmers picked up about 25,000 barrels of oily water. Last Thursday, they gathered just 200 barrels.
Still, it doesn't mean that all the oil that gushed for weeks is gone. Thousands of small oil patches remain below the surface, but experts say an astonishing amount has disappeared, reabsorbed into the environment.
"[It's] mother nature doing her job," said Ed Overton, a professor of environmental studies at Louisiana State University.
The world is not going to end after all, and I think it's safe to pull up UltraLong's fantastic blog on the oversold oil companies and see what's still for sale. You may have jumped in already, but I like to be conservative.
