Shadow Boxing the Apocalypse

Did we not see this coming?

The Chicago Sun-Times called out BP three years ago for dumping toxins into Lake Michigan.

A Wikipedia page lists a long litany of offenses, mentioning that Mother Jones twice named BP one of the world’s 10 worst corporations.

Another report says BP’s safety record is worse than you imagined.

I fully realize it does nothing now to care and express anger after the fact. Do we need to refocus our conservation priorities? What good do slot limits and cutting up the little rings on plastic six-pack holders do if one careless, or possibly malevolent, corporation can so effortlessly undo any collective environmental gains?

And who else has the potential to take a dump in our backyard?
