THIS IS NOT FUCKING OKAY.

in this news article on autopsies being done on animals dying down in the gulf, http://www.nytimes.com/2010/07/15/science/earth/15necropsy.html?pagewanted=1&_r=1&src=me, is this bit:

"In the meantime, at places like the Texas Tech institute, the oil spill has set off a mad scramble to fill in the gaps in knowledge. In one laboratory, jars of BP crude in various stages of weathering await analysis to determine their relative toxicity. In another lab, graduate students paint precise amounts of oil on incubating duck eggs. Tanks of fiddler crabs awaited a shipment of Corexit 9500, the dispersant being used by BP in the Gulf.

In the end, Dr. Godard-Codding said, scientists will not find a single smoking gun. The evidence — results of laboratory tests, population counts, assessments of how well oil-drenched animals survive after rehabilitation — will all be circumstantial."

so fucking typical. animals are dying, poisoned, their food and water destroyed, and these fuckers are ordering oil and dispersants to poison even more, in the name of science.

THIS IS NOT FUCKING OKAY.
