Caught in the oil

Barbara

 We wanted Oil…We Got Oil. These photos sadly show what is only the beginning to what will be the end result of nearly 1 million gallons of oil a day spewing into our ocean, our wetlands and onto our beaches. I have not stopped crying and I doubt I will for there is no plug the damn hole in site.  Man, because he could,  drilled 5,000 feet into the surface of our planet, our home in search of oil and was never asked what will you do if this oil begins to flow freely at 5,000 feet ? How will you control the flow of millions of gallons of oil? How will you prevent what will surely be a catastrophe?   

These are photos of the destruction of LIFE because NO one asked the question How will you plug the hole in the center of the earth? 

And I can’t help but wonder why?   

A short entry – AP Photographer Charlie Riedel just filed the following images of seabirds caught in the oil slick on a beach on Louisiana’s East Grand Terre Island. As BP engineers continue their efforts to cap the underwater flow of oil, landfall is becoming more frequent, and the effects more evident.
