You may have heard the story that the BP Oil Spill from two years ago was causing problems for the fish in the Gulf of Mexico today. But that wasn’t necessarily based on … science. Apparently using terms like “evidence is nowhere conclusive…” gives away the fact that scientist are not even the least bit in “consensus” concerning what is causing the problem in the “relatively small portion of fish.” In other words, someone reported that fish were sick and dying and all the lefties immediately concluded that it was a result of the BP Oil Spill.
I like what Steve Maley of Redstate.com had to say about it:
Lest we forget, oil is part of the natural environment. Organisms have natural ways of dealing with it. Out of thousands of fish and shellfish tested for contamination, not a single tainted sample has been found. The article tells of fish found with traces of naphthalene in their bile — but you don’t eat bile.
I love those reminders. We need them in this politically correct world. Oil… occurs… naturally… in nature. In other words, oil is a part of nature, so introducing it into nature is hardly unnatural.
