Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What's really scary...

(from an op/ed by J Marcel:

Today is Day 59 of the well explosion that killed 11 people and is sending an estimated 2.5 million gallons of crude oil each day gushing into the Gulf of Mexico.        

In terms of the U.S. addiction to oil, it's a miniscule amount. According to ABC News, U.S. motorists burn roughly 400 million gallons of gasoline every day, and "the BP leak (if estimates of its size are right) would need to bleed on, unfettered, for three more years to equal America's daily consumption."


What if the locusts can't move on?

The difference between theory and practise in practise ...
