What BP Doesn’t Want You To See: Dead Fish Washed Ashore, Gulf Coast Birds Mired in Oil

This shocking photo was taken by NY Times reader Sabrina Bradford on a beach in Waveland Mississippi. It dramatically demonstrates the impact of the oil catastrophe on fish and the fishing industry. 37% of the Gulf of Mexico is now closed to fishing.

More Truthiness on “Climategate”

Several posts ago, I talked about truthiness, Stephen Colbert’s word coined to express ‘truth’ that is known “from the gut” without regard to evidence, logic, intellectual examination, or facts .  The climate change deniers continue to go wild over the 13 years of hacked emails from East Anglia University, saying they are proof that global warming is a hoax.  This is blatantly untrue – glaciers continue to melt, droughts in Africa continue, and the Antarctic ice cover continues to shrink.  The science is not in question; there is an overwhelming amount of it out there. And taking a few lines out of more than a decade of personal emails doesn’t change that. Check out this “Climate Denial Crock of the Week” video, where some of this “truthiness” is exposed:
