Fiddling While Rome Burns

Even if it’s not true that Nero played a lyre while watching the Great Fire of Rome, there are many historical cases of human inaction and apathy in the face of impending doom. I’m not sure if President Obama and BP CEO Tony Hayward have been playing musical instruments as they watch massive quantities of oil gush from the Deepwater Horizon. But this disaster proves that Americans are unable to take even the most basic precautions to protect our planet. I thought that surely we would take this oil spill seriously by declaring a state of National Emergency and by deploying all available resources to stop the gusher and remediate the damage. Instead, we are waiting, lawsuits in hand, for someone else to fix the problem.
