I hate it when my side is as incompetent as theirs.

I hate it when my side is incompetent.
I wish I could have helped Safina get it right.
It really hurts the movement when schlock like this is published.
Good writing begins by asking good questions and doing the hard work to get good answers. Safina does neither.
The big unanswered questions include:
1. What were the conditions, behaviors, actions, and inactions that directly resulted in the nature, the magnitude, the location, and the timing of the each key outcome?
2. What were the earlier, better, cheaper, safer ways that those conditions, behaviors, actions, and inactions and their deeper causation could have been identified and addressed before the blowout?
3. Working back from the blowout, what were the missed opportunities to have prevented the blowout?
It doesn't help that Safina tries to explain complicated physical situations without schematics, illustrations, charts, or the like.
