    but fupa, what do you recommend we do besides wait until it gets here and then clean it up? Go down there and clean it up? Not allowed. Write the congressman? Plenty of people already have. Buy a boat and drag some bed sheets throught the gulf? Not gonna cut it.

    Tell us your thoughts...

This is the attitude that got us here in the first place. Seriously, if you dont think this is a National/Global tragedy, WAKE UP!!! No chicken little here but seriously, wake up the issues!
    I know I always loved the attitude that since it is not close to home "forgetaboutit". This goes for war an anything else that is not right in "our" backyard.

    Maybe when it gets here it will be to late....

    Sort of sad but hey, that is how our leaders run the world so why be prepared and take preventative actions in the first place?

    Before your further whine about govt action read this: http://abcnews.go.com/WN/bp-oil-spil...ry?id=10946379

    govt is actually hindering REAL action by people directly affected!

    Instead of giving you a slick senseless response...hopefully I can YOU invovled. Surfrider is really one of the only organizations that has OUR interest in mind. Power comes in nubmers so more people supporting a view the more likely it is to be heard. NOW, the real point. Surfrider is currently one org that is fighting to keep offshore drilling off the Jersey Shore. This may prevent a future disaster in our own back yard!!! Now is Surfrider still stupid?

    IF we start seeing oil in the keys I'll start watching more closely, and IF we start seeing it in NC I'll get concerned, then by some wild combination of circumstances it ends up in NJ I'll work clean up if needed.
    you sound like a NIMBY supporter. i agree that panic and fear dont do us any good, but all of us should still be concerned since the oil is absolutely impacting our shared interest, the ocean.

    Concern is one thing, fear mongering is another.

    Fupa, do a little research on surfrider and see what happens when surfing and the environment conflict (piping plovers in NC). surfrider doesnt always our interest in mind.

    To reset tho...

    As far as it getting into the loop and hitting NJ. Highly unlikely.

    Getting sucked up and then raining back down on us? I think there was a thread a few weeks back that addressed this and the conclusion was that oil would not get sucked p into a storm like acid rain.
