Oil Spill an “Act of God”
Texas Governor Rick Perry (R) claimed on Monday that the oil rig explosion that caused a massive — and still-expanding spill — may have been “just an act of God” that could not have been prevented.
What the hell does that mean? I suspect it’s intent is “Look the other way, son” or “Let’s just sweep this under the rug and pretend it didn’t happen”, though I’m not sure how ignoring issues can ever improve a damn thing. We do need oil for our economy to function, but i don’t see how “It’s a mystery!” can in any way serve as motivation to improve methods and processes.
