So of course it is now widely known across the globe about BP’s oil spill catastrophe on April 20th, 2010.
Thousands of wild animals are being thrown in this tidal wave of disaster with no way out. Especially with Hurricane Alex moving along in the Gulf at the moment, the oil is being tossed and turned up consuming everything in it’s path.
Personally, if I could financially allow myself to take a month off and go down and help clean up I would in a heart beat. It’s going to take a VERY VERY long time before this oil is all cleaned up. There is no way of knowing when the oil will stop leaking, for only mother earth knows that fact. It’s like and endless champagne bottle eruption that lasts for months!
Greedy humans are the blame for this mess. We take and take and take, and that’s it. Our dependence on fossil fuels has reached a point of no return, and now more than ever we need to change our bad habits into new sustainable ones. If I could afford a hybrid I would buy one..I’d really prefer a vehicle that ran on something I could produce myself (sustainability + cheap) and that I didn’t have to rely on from huge companies that exploit my money.
How do you feel about this issue?
