Oh no, BP makes 'giant' oil discovery

Oil company BP just stumbled upon a pocket of oil in the Gulf of Mexico that may contain up to four billion barrels, about 868 million of that could be extracted. This would represent five percent of BP's 18 billion barrels in proven reserves. (Yahoo Finance)

Oh. Great.

Pound360 isn't against finding new resources and making money. We like those things. But we do get a little bummed when we read news like this. Why? Because this makes people think it's okay to put off finding (spending a ton of money) on clean, renewable forms of energy to run our lives. But it's not.

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
