Very Little Help Cleaning Up the Environment

There are expressions about the little things in life and how they matter, such as rainbows, puppies, kittens, sunsets, a nice tune on the radio, bacon, an encouraging word, and so on. I am going to pull the ol' switcheroo on you now and make it literal. The little things that count in this case are microbes.

Disasters from oil and plastics in the oceans have been reduced by microbes that consume them. Evolutionists try to use this, but that is false.

Before I continue, this seems like a good place to denounce selfish idiots who litter their Wuhan virus facemasks and rubber gloves. I can't say what I'm thinking here, so suffice to say, stop it at once.

Humans are dumping all sorts of toxic things like plastics in the oceans, and there have been some oil spills that were downright disastrous. Indeed, recovery seemed almost hopeless at the time. Our Creator has made provisions through various microbes that actually consume oil and plastics.


Some were genetically altered, others were frontloaded with the ability to feast on other things, so oil and plastics are a different flavor on the smörgåsbord. Of course, Darwinists try to capitalize on this, but it actually has nothing to do with evolution.
Are we in danger of destroying life on the planet by continually dumping millions of tons of polyurethane plastics into our waterways and landscapes and by enormous oil spills in the oceans? In both cases, the problems may sound insurmountable until we remember that our God is both the Creator and Sustainer of life and planet earth.

Help came from another unexpected source after two major oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico. In June 1979 Mexico’s Ixtoc oil well exploded and spewed 30,000 barrels of oil per day for ten months. . . .

Though many questions about long-term effects still need answers, the doomsaying seems highly exaggerated. Two years after the Ixtoc spill, many were surprised at how quickly those environments returned to health. Just three decades later, people are hard-pressed to find any evidence of the spill, and the same thing is happening with the BP spill. It turns out that the lion’s share of the clean-up is done by oil-eating bacteria.
