This post is not about the oil spill in the gulf. It´s not about the hideous and incalculable damage to fragile coastal wetlands, marine life, and shore birds, or the other collateral damage from this petroleum-based nightmare. It´s not about the lack of a viable disaster plan or the continued national unwillingness to connect this spill with unsustainable consumption levels. Nor is it about BP´s ongoing denial of the seriousness of the spill or the Obama Administration´s tepid public response coupled with inadequate laws and a dysfunctional system of oversight.
Nope. This post is about frogs. A couple of million hopped out of a lake in Greece and closed a road.
Isn´t that cute? Go figure those wacky amphibians. What will they think of next?
