Pictures of the Year 2010

Despite all the problems caused by global warming and damage to the environment, mankind is hell-bent on extracting all the oil he can find. This is one small victim amongst the multitudes who have suffered from the hydrocarbon economy.

This bird will not survive. It will die a slow death from poisoning as the toxins in the crude oil attack its brain, liver, kidneys, the linings of its stomach, intestines and lungs. All major organ systems will shut down.  And while it dies, its eyes, skin and mucus membranes will all be burning. 

But who cares, right? As long as the privileged members of the human race can continue to drive their 4x4s to work, then what's the death of an animal more or less?

I can not and will not cut my conscience to fit this year's fashions.
