Inconvenient research that will be ignored

I predict now this research will go absolutely nowhere, it is just not what anybody involved wants to hear. Killing oil covered sea birds rather than cleaning them? Madness. Just because they all die within a week is no reason not to produce those iconic pictures of caring volunteers cleaning them; smug self satisfaction is in fact more important to most of those groups than actual animal welfare.

As for everyone else involved, oil firms obviously can’t mention it, while the US government will merely file it so they can use it as yet another stick to beat BP with in a few months time (while letting Haliburton and Transocean of scot-free as their American).

Apart from the birds it’s the scientists I feel sorry for, all that work and no-one is going to even want to read their work because they’ve come up with the ‘wrong’ answer.
