More on the Toxic Sludge

You might remember our post from last week on the toxic sludge that got dumped on and around the town Abidjan in the Ivory Coast after meandering it's way down the Atlantic ocean. If you're interested, the folks at CJR Daily have more on the story behind the story. I recommend it.

As a note, given how much our political leaders depend on the news media for information, what does that say about our state of preparedness for situations in the rest of the world?

They are saying that this is the largest mud volcano ever uncovered in the world. You either let it kill the ground or the ocean - it will kill one or another. I believe the cost is great either way.
