"Exxon Valdez oil spill to don't-worry-be-happy because "nature would take care of it"???"

There is a scientific school of thought that too much scrubbing with chemicals delays the recovery of the area. Nature does take care of it, as best it can. That is the opinion of people doing the survey.

Of course the money would be better spend avoiding the problems in the first place but the accountants see the money going out and no disasters, so it is redundant money. But then looking both ways when crossing the road is often redundant, but the consequences of getting that wrong are tangible and painful. Redundancy is a positive, it is insurance but try telling that to the money men.
