Meanwhile, the "drill, baby, drill" crowd is trying to pin the blame for this one anyone except BP or offshore drilling in general.

Just imagine if all this had happened during hurricane season and if the leaks had been bigger? Rough sea making it hard to go plug the holes or drill a relief well, and a lot more oil in the sea. Unless we make big changes to the energy industry, this spill is just the first act before a bigger one down the line...

If you want to buy it
The shirt's available from Despair for $15.95. It's printed on an American Apparel shirt (some of the company's environmental initiatives can be found here).
