    this looks extrodinarily bad.

    If Katrina makes landfall at its current strength it will be the second strongest hurricane to ever make landfall in the US.

    BTW get the fuck out of Mississsippi and Alabama too. Katrina will still be a category 2 well into Northern Mississippi and Alabama.

    They say if the storm surge tops the levees protecting New Orleans it could take as long as 6 months to pump all of the water back out of the low-lying areas of the city.

    To add to the happy fun much of the Gulf of Mexico oil an

  • Climate change isn't happening. The fact that we're seeing extreme weather conditions with alarming frequency all over the planet is just a big coincidence. No need to worry. No need to think about alternatives to oil, no need to start taking serious measures to reduce our impact on our environment and ecology. La-la-la-la, the White House says it's not happening so it must be so.

    When your kids and grandkids ask you why you didn't pay attention to Mother Nature's not-so-subtle warnings, remember to tell the
    • Love how the shrub this morning said 4 lines about Katrina then started talking about Iraq.

      Yea, way to show compassion there bub.

      Oh and those gas-guzzling SUV drivers will just love the gasoline prices come Monday. A full third of the US oil production is effected by the hurricane, one of the major import terminals is directly in the hurricane's path, and several large refineries are being shut down due to the hurricane.
      • Actually the refineries were already in the process of shutting down, because it takes several days to do so.

        It is not the refineries you have to worry about. There are innumerable drilling platforms that will have to be towed back to their wellheads, repaired, and reattached. There are many, many pipelines that will be damaged, and this will takes months--if not years--to fully repair.

        Gotta love that oil dependent economy. Too bad we're not like those damn peace-loving communists [energie-schweiz.ch].

        • Refineries are a concern because even if oil is release from the stratiegic petrolium reserve there may not be the capacity to refine it.

          The oil production and transport infrasteructure is a problem as well.
