try to catch the deluge in a paper cup

Leave it to the press to be entirely inaccurate in big areas and then try to keep their credibility. Grr.

I don't know what's up with the job offer thing--it seems to be another branch of BP (their supposed "green" branch, which is painfully ironic even to think about.

I haven't heard about any bad stuff about the UK--probably because I tend to watch/listen to the progressive stuff and they're not about blaming countries, I dunno. I believe you when you say it's there, though, and ick. That's just awful.

We all need to do better with oil. A LOT better.

Eventually we're all going to run out, and then we'll have no choice. Although I don't think it's at all fringe-y to say that when we finally do run out, there's a real possibility that "civilization" will come to a crashing halt. Because it's not just gas and heat and light, it's building structures and pipes and medical equipment. Scary stuff.

I just hope this kind of disaster is at least the very beginning of a wakeup call for everyone. This is what oil does, and oh, by the way, we're going to run out of it.

And btw, I've always been a fan of the UK, even before I knew diddly about politics (hey, I've been using a dorky bastardised version of British spelling since I was twelve because I think it's prettier *g*). Also, two words: Monty Python.
