Hello, Mother. You gotta love those who love “the Mother.” When the planet is doing what God intended it to do and that is seen as a good thing, then it’s “Mother Earth doing her job.” When the planet is doing what God intended it to do and that is seen as a bad thing, then “it’s God’s fault.” And who said environmentalism isn’t a religion?
ABC News: “[It's] mother nature doing her job,” said Ed Overton, a professor of environmental studies at Louisiana State University.
No, those aren’t owls. According to this story from ABC News the oil spill is going away. It is disappearing. And the environmentalists and scientists are screeching. Check out this brilliance: ”The numbers don’t lie: two weeks ago, skimmers picked up about 25,000 barrels of oily water. Last Thursday, they gathered just 200 barrels.”
ABC, not to lose a good cause with a bad story, jumps back with, “Still, it doesn’t mean that all the oil that gushed for weeks is gone. Thousands of small oil patches remain below the surface.”
Sadly, there is the need to acknowledge the glory of God’s work. ”But experts say an astonishing amount has disappeared, reabsorbed into the environment.”
And then, there’s Professor Ed driving it home with his funky religion thing, ”[It's] mother nature doing her job,” said Ed Overton, a professor of environmental studies at Louisiana State University. You can only pray, Professor Ed, you can only pray. The Mother is listening. Now, let’s all grab some sod and make a nice hat.
