Boston Globe's Horrific Photos of Birds Trapped in BP Oil Spill

Briefly, Boston Globe has posted some of the most disturbing, horrific photos of birds caught in BP's oil slick that I've seen. The pictures made me shudder and fuel me to keep writing on this ecological disaster.

Some of the birds are pelicans; others are so drowned in oil that I can't tell what they are. Currently the pictures have 265 comments. See photos here if you have a strong stomach.

I've used for this post a photo from the April explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, the incident that brought us here today, so we can remember that 11 men died. BP has yet to say anything to the men's families, says one blogger.

And, as I posted earlier today, BP's CEO Tony Hayward's admitted the oil giant had no solutions plan for an oil leak one mile below the service.

Finally, today at Humid Beings, the news greeted us that "Aquaman is dead!" from Aquaman Shrine. The piece satire.

Related: All oil spill posts at this blog, including Flashback: Jindal Tells How He Grew Up with Oil Industry and that Threat to Environment is Balanced in Louisiana. Yes, he's anti-regulation.

Also, from the Wall Street Journal, Sarah Palin misrepresents information again. WSJ: "According to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, Republicans receive far more campaign money from the oil and gas industry than do Democrats.."
