    Angry The Gulf Oil "Spill"

    Has anyone been following this ? I believe we are being mislead with false info like the size, amount, and time frame. Just by looking at the outside experts what there saying its just unreal how much is coming out. So sad nothing will ever be the same in the gulf again! I've been watching the live feed from the gusher at the well looks like things are just getting worse i was watching the feed like 5 min ago and out of no where came this huge explosion of oil, rocks and big puffs of just shi*. Check it out you can watch it live here pretty sickening!

    I kinda have, i really dont want to follow it. I dont even wanna think about it. When i went out today water was all murky and the foam was all yellow, i got scared thinking if the oil came up here. I think its much worse than what they're saying to.

    Agreed,I just told my wife I can't watch this crap on tv anymore.It pisses me off.That CEO is a real jerk off too.That Jackass tries to spin everything.Sooner or later it has to come up here.Its only a matter of time.I know there are people for and against drilling but if they drill they should have a friggin back up plan if something should go wrong.(morons)See now im fired up again.

    I know..Its ridiculous already, i like how they barely tried anything and nothing worked. That would ruin most of my summer. and i feel so bad for all animals and stuff that have to suffer because of this.

    a guy in the line up this afternoon made a great point- he said that he couldn't build a house w/out inspectors climbing all around the site & poking their noses into everything, yet we can create an oil field in the middle of the ocean w/ no back-up plan.

    this whole thing is a mess, & while i've always been an opponent of offshore oil drilling, i used to be able to see how some could support it. not any more. the gulf is dead. all tourism for the season on the east coast of the gulf is dead. if the oil makes the turn into the atlantic (really only a matter of time), then the tourism along much of the eastern seaboard will die as well (which will make the debate around land use & birds on the outer banks a largely academic one). oil is a poison & will linger in the environment FOREVER. you can't really clean it up. even if we could get every scrap of visible oil off the beaches & out of the ocean & salt marshes, there would still be trace amounts, working its way up the food chain, in ever increasing concentrations, all the way up to humans. while oil covered birds, otters, & dolphins make for a convenient rallying point, they are not representative of the damage a truly massive oil spill like this can cause.

    that bp has attempted to whitewash this disaster & make it seem less severe than it actually is inexcusable. they need to own up & stop trying to "recover" the oil so that they can still generate a profit, & start focusing solely on getting the well capped so that it can't spew anymore oil out. then they need to focus on getting as much of it out of the ecosystem as possible. & they should continue to pay for this spill for 100 years or ntil they go bankrupt. too many companies have created environmental disasters & gotten away relatively scott-free for the damage they caused.

    i am infuriated beyond belief by this cluster-f--k.

    thanks for posting that. not sure how much good it'll do, but it's certainly worth a shot.

    Yeah it was really nasty looking, and it tasted really bad also.

    I watched a show on Discovery about the Exxon Valdez disaster. The show was filmed late last year. They were digging holes in the ground about 8 inches deep near the shoreline and you could see the oil tainted water fill the hole up and clearly see that oil was very much present still, after all these years. The marsh ecosystems in the golf will be destroyed for, at least, the rest of our lifetimes. Just think, we may never eat seafood again. This is a complete disaster that is not getting the visibility and recognition it deserves. The more I think about it and the impacts it will have for my daughter and her generation, the more angry I get. We should ALL (the entire country) be furious at BP and the handling of this situation.
