Intriguing, but not sure about the horror. Hope you are okay.
Are you referring to the nasty oil spill? If so, I agree!
Okay, time to turn on the news and pay attention. This is an oil-entrapment boom in the bayou, placed there by BP (British Petroleum) after last weekend's colossal explosion of one of their offshore drilling rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. In the wake of probably the worst man-made environmental disaster in our history (much worse than the Exxon-Valdez), a huge oil slick is making landfall. Louisiana has declared a state of emergency, but the spill will undoubtedly impact all of the Gulf states. The ramifications are enormous.Remember this next time you gas up the car.
Aaaargh! That is awful! My only excuse is that my head has been inside a packing box for a week. Now I'll brush off the cobwebs from those black widow spiders and start to pay attention.
Katherine, no excuse necessary. I know you're packing up for your dad. Hope it goes well for him and that he enjoys Florida. Don't let the spidders bite!
Scary and tragic.
But a great photo....
Until complacency is replaced by total deprivation, humans will never get it. How this region keeps getting slammed is horrific.And the damage will have effects long after the headlines die off.
It's horrific, devastating ... and it's not an oil spill. It's an unchecked oil gush they can't (or haven't really tried) to stop! It's far worse than the Exxon Valdez! The only bright side (if you could call it that) is this is a topic on the east coast right now as big oil producers try to convince Congress that the Virginia coast is a perfect place for these off shore oil producers. That would be awful. Seems like they have to begin looking at long term ramifications and stop these stupid bandaid solutions. That goes the same for nuclear power. (they forget 3 mile island and chernobyl)
