    During the hearings on Capitol Hill, yesterday, June 17, 2010, I gleaned a couple of glimpses of insight into the BP scenario that was not covered in the news media analyzes. The first piece of insight gleaned by me was when Tony Hayward's answer to a stated question was that the US rules and regulations were more stringent than other countries such as Norway, pertaining to drilling oil wells. This coincides with what I learned in my undergrad course People, Science and the Environment. In all of my chosen comparative analyzes conducted, for instance, pertaining to the quality of water in Renton, WA, USA versus London, England, UK, the US proved to practice superior stewardship when it comes to our water conservation. Therefore, at this point in time the US has an opening to become the world's team leader in environmental issues.

    I saw a news film yesterday of a dozen or so beach goers standing at the edge of a line of oil blobs seemingly unmoved. Off shore within sight can be seen two skimmer boats, seemingly uneffective. No cleaning crews were in sight.

    Nobody cares.
