"Nuke the whales!"
"I cook my spotted owl in Exxon oil."

How can anyone justify such terrible statements on:
1) turning nuclear weapons on nature
2) whale slaughter
3) killing and eating an endangered species, and
4) the Exxon Valdez oil spill
by saying the public isn't adequately educated, or by saying government
regulators and others weren't patient enough. The entire world received
countless hours of exposure on the Exxon oil spill, probably to an
unprecedented scale-- blackened Prince William Sound beaches, dying
shorebirds and sea otters, and more destruction, accompanied by Exxon Corp
comments that they shouldn't be held responsible, even smugly saying they'd
pass cleanup costs on to the public-- and people still made such sinister
comments and displayed them on their vehicles.
