we can't burn our forests but we will burn our oceans

Okay here is my political rant for the day:

Picture from the New York Times 

Forest managers face so many hurdles and hassles to implement prescribed burning in forests (especially here in the east) that have been completely altered by fire suppression.

But we lose no time in burning our oceans.

Sometimes I hate living in our globalized, free trade, capitalist economy but I can't help being an oil-dependent consumer just like every other entitled member of the most developed nation in the world, watching helplessly as our addiction to black gold destroys the environment.
