THE GREAT OIL SPILL in THE GULF of MEXICO
Light - of relatively little weight
Sweet - having the taste of sugar;
low in sulfur content : sweet fuel oil.
Crude - being in an unrefined or natural state; raw;
a dark oil consisting of mainly of hydrcarbons.
Hydocarbons - Any class of compounds composed only of carbon hydrogen. Hydrocarbons are principal constituents of petroleum & natural gas, lubricants, & raw materials for production of plastics, fibres, rubbers, solvents, & industrial chemicals. All burn to carbon dioxide and water with enough oxygen or to carbon monoxide without it.
Misnomer - a name unsuitably applied
This oil spill violates the sacred place that is OUR Gulf Coast - the shorelines, the economy, the livlihoods, the ecology, the life forms that live and breed there, the birds that migrate through, and the people who live and breathe the Gulf.
