It does, but what can I do right now? I guess I just don't feel the need to get very upset since I am not there and I can't really get in there and make my emotions worth something. I'm preggo too so getting upset isn't exactly great for me right now. I'd rather try to do something that could actually help. I don't feel me getting upset would be of any use right now.

Here in Australia i have not seen a mention about the Gulf disaster for the last few days. Although thats no surprise the media here are pathetic and would rather focus on Tiger Woods coming out here to play golf or any other celebrity bull# story.

Bless you and yours my sister!
I know what you mean. Stay focused on your health.
But you know what? Something (emotion?) brought you to my thread though.
With love and good health always~

I think they should have nuked this mess weeks ago. There would be no radiation or anything and we could go back to things being normal. Oh wait, nukes are only for KILLING PEOPLE, my mistake. Guess in the case of an asteroid coming in we should just blow ourselves up beforehand, that'll show that asteroid who's boss.

How do you feel about the oil spill?
It makes my soul ignite into a thousand tears of flowers and windswept lakes. When I think about all the animals and sh*t and my body convulses into vibrational riptides of fractal grief. I can't even look at the face of Tony Hayward without my eyes hurting, they hurt as if BP fired pins directly into them using the power of mother Gaia's suffering....
With each new barrel of lost oil poured into the gaping ocean, my heart rips and shreds like the pipeline itself. When are we going to abandon the old way of living? We use cars, heating systems and all the other stuff they use oil for (I think they use it to make plastic or something I don't know). It doesn't have to be like this PEOPLE! I think we should put a ban on oil altogether as this kinda thing has happened before.....

How about the oil spill going today in Nigeria, it's been spilling for the past 6 months. Have you heard about it in the news?
If that doesn't work, please cut and paste this: www.guardian.co.uk...

The whole thing makes me sick and angry that the US doesn't protect us or our wild life as well as other countries do. I doubt I will ever eat fish again because I do not trust the FDA or my grocers about the quality of the fish, safety and where it came from.
As for the pics of animals covered in oil I just can't look at them any more. My brother and I participated in rescue and clean up effort back in the sixties and I will tell you that almost all of them will die despite the clean up even if they have just a little oil on them.
Being allergic/highly sensitive to petroleum products I'm also very worried about the coming monsoon season in the desert southwest - yeah, you heard me right. Our weather systems in July and August are fed in large part by the remnants of Gulf hurricanes and tropical depressions. If the oil and dispersant get in the air, hurricanes and winds, the toxic rain could come down anywhere. Does anyone really know how this is going to work?
I can't believe this is still gushing and that people like Boehner are saying we, the US tax payers should help pay for the clean up. BP makes me sick for using the dispersant to trying to hide the amount of oil. We cannot let them off the hook. Seize every single one of their assets to pay for the damage. No one should settle until the leak is completely stopped.
