Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind

Wow.  And this guy’s a “marine scientist”…

But not everyone is convinced that all of this cleanup business is necessary. For instance take George Crozier, a marine scientist from the Dauphin Island Sea Lab, who thinks everyone should just suck it up and learn to live with it:

“Buried is buried. It will get carved up by a hurricane at some point, but I see no particular advantage to digging it up,” he said. “It’s a human environmental hazard only because people don’t want to go to the beach if it’s got tar balls on it.”

Fantastic.  As long as it’s under the sand, there’s nothing to worry about.  Sure, a hurricane might spread it all over the Southeast, but I’m sure it’ll be fine.
