A Photo Of 'Safe' Offshore Drilling

Sometimes a photo says it all. With Big Oil and allies like Sarah Palin pushing the "Drill, baby, drill!" line as a poor substitute to America's unhealthy dependence on foreign oil, it's worth taking a moment to take a step back (really, really far back) and evaluate the consequences of our oil addiction.

The offshore oil rig that exploded and sank in the Gulf of Mexico has left an oil slick that covers more than 2,000 square miles of ocean and is visible from space.

Does this mean the Heritage Foundation, American Petroleum Institute and other oil-obsessed interest groups will be walking back their claims as to the safety of offshore drilling anytime soon? Don't bet on it...
