Once Again the 'Little Guys' Do All the Work for the Benefit of a Big Corporation

Everyone is scratching their head over the seeming lack of oil on the surface of the Gulf of Mexico. While many fear it is deeper in the water, Y!News is reporting that 'Mighty Microbes' are eating the oil up. Apparently the warmer waters of the Gulf are favorable to the growth of these microbes and so there is a higher count of them than the locations of previous spills. As a bonus, the microbes also seem to like the chemical dispersant that has been used in the Gulf which also keeps oil drops smaller and easier.

It reminds me of the ending of the "War of the Worlds" where the problem was solved "...after all man's devices had failed, by the humblest things that God, in his wisdom, has put upon this earth."

    Thanks! I hadn't heard this, just that the spill was disappearing, thanks to the Herculean effort of the Obama Administration. I guess Obama is the guy who thought of putting all those mighty microbes into the oceans...
