Its too bad we cant organize some community spirit and promote beach vacations in the area, with the intent of helping with some cleanup, and supporting the regions economy. Eco-tourism, in a sense.

Im going to say something knowone has said, or knows about. 1st of all why have they not put in some kind of valve to shut it off in case of things like this. 2nd of all, did you know that none of the rigs have a shut off valve. So, this will happen again somewhere else. All this will cause so much havoc in the ocean. plant life dying,fish dying,animals dying,birds dying. The beaches will become a sesspool of DEATH AND DISEASE.
