The explosion at Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico has stymied the corporate sector and the government sector on an effective solution to oil gushing ever upwards. President Barack Obama said the buck stops with him on dealing with the disaster and it’s a no-brainer to conclude that BP corporate will do everything within the company’s power to stop the gusher. Obviously this accident is something no one thought of.
Short answer: government obsession with global warming/climate change and BP’s obsession with cost cutting in the interest of profit.
I’m deliberately omitting conspiracy theories about why the exploratory well blew because we don’t know enough about it yet.
For years government has been maniacally obsessed with global warming/climate change in large part due to failed presidential candidate Al Gore’s promotional efforts.
But the fact remains the world runs on carbon.

Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), ranking member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, has released a ‘sneak-peek’ into a major new Senate report on an investigation of the Climategate scandal. A statement at Inhofe’s Senate website said emails and documents were reviewed from “a 13-year period from 1996 through November 2009.” The Environmental Protection Agency ignored the serious implications of the emails and documents made public.
What emerged from the Senate committee investigation of Climategate, Inhofe said, “is much more than, as EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson put it, scientists who ‘lack interpersonal skills.’”
Commentary by Kay B. Day
Global warming alarmists love to post charts, graphs and scientific data on message boards and comment threads. Most of the laymen alarmists aren’t scientists and take their talking points directly from alarmist websites. They are like little parrots of science, repeating whatever dogma is drilled into their willing brains.
But ClimateGate has expanded with another revelation—actually a couple of them. And since Big Branded Media in the U.S. probably won’t tell you about it, we figured we’d share the news. For starters, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has some explaining to do about those Himalayan glaciers that are supposed to disappear by 2035. The Times (London) said, “In the past few days the scientists behind the warning have admitted that it was based on a news story in the New Scientist, a popular science journal, published eight years before the IPCC's 2007 report.”

On the heels of one of the greatest scandals in the history of science, my hometown newspaper ran stories on global warming, carbon dioxide levels and the end of the world in 2012. The stories ran in section A in Sunday’s big fat paper—fat because of all the Christmas advertising inserts. There was no mention of the scandal, however. [Story continues after photo.]
