So... All that stuff about the benefits of the oil spill still stand (it's a great protagonist for environmental conservation, and oil Independence / alternative). However, the negative effects may be much larger than anyone anticipated a couple of weeks ago.
It's been like a month and a half now.
- What if it goes on a year?
- What are some of the most realistic approximations of that that would mean?
- Would anything like this ever naturally occur, due to say an earthquake?
I'm not real sure about the last one, but I'm pretty sure the first two can be restated as: What happens if the Atlantic Ocean stops working? A: Probably bad
I'm going to say: Value investing, and bow and arrow practice.
