Wow! It’s Still 1979
This video is titled “The more oil spills change, the more they stay the same.”
It’s an eight-minute video by Rachel Maddow. Please bookmark it for later if you don’t have eight minutes to spare right now. It’ll be well worth it.
There was an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in the summer of 1979. You won’t believe the parallels between that spill and our current BP fiasco. The same negligence and equipment malfunctions that caused the spill, and — you won’t believe this — the exact fuckin’ SAME methods for TRYING to contain the oil spill.
Watch and seethe.
