Gulf oil spill

The tragedy in the Gulf that is killing its water has been a preoccupation for me. I am going to put together a posting with various videos, links, pictures, and commentary on this. I cannot in words express my outrage and heartbreak regarding this environmental catastrophe that will most certainly now affect the lives of our children and other species for decades to come. It is now estimated that 70,000 gallons of oil are now continuing to spill daily. It is unfathomable to me how this is not bringing about a sudden change in our behavior and a much louder outcry to move away from this toxic, dangerous and destructive source of energy to alternative fuels and other energy sources that will not doom our survival. When I have put this posting together I will add it here.

Thanks for your patience.
