The true price of oil dependence? Thots fr TNC scientist @RLSwaty after he screws up changing his oil

WOW, you really need to stop reading those silly propaganda stories disguised as conservation from the corrupt media and you certainly need to stop creating them. It is responsible to keep your spill to a minimum but please learn a little biology and chemistry before spreading this type of paranoia. When your spilled oil is in a part of the ecosystem where it can do damage it is also in a part of the system where microbes will be able to consume it. Even a large spill like our recent gulf disaster or the Exxon Alaskan spill only have a real impact on wildlife measured in years not decades. Your driveway spill will impact nothing. Long term impact, zero, same as the two much larger examples. Granted people with a corrupt agenda will be able to fabricate impact from anything but this is not science and it is certainly not conservation!
