Since my original post was removed due to my implied choice of words, I figured I would try to fix my mistake.
I take this event very seriously and it is deeply angering that there are people out there, especially people on ATS, that think this oil spill is no
big deal, that it will just go away, or that the earth will just bounce back from it.
Those people are simply wrong. Its so blatant that this is rapidly becoming the worst oil event in the seas that the earth has ever known. Ever.
It is an extinction level event that quite possibly is already eradicating species from the Gulf's waters and is spreading by the day.
There are several posts and posters on here now that simply defy reason and respect for our home. How so many people can be so utterly possessed of
apathy and disregard for the environment's well being is beyond my understanding.
Everything on this world is connected and whether we admit it or not, this spill is going to affect everyone. There is no limit to the devastation
this will end up causing to our world or even to us.
Most likely, this leak is unfixable. It could leak for long after all of us are dead and gone. It might go on to kill all life in the seas and worst
case scenario, most life on earth through events it could set into motion.
It's hard to make this post without being gripped by anger at the enemies of our planet and feeling the need to lash out at them, but the rest of us
need to band together against those whose sit idly by while the earth dies, or choose to try to profit from it, like our finnish friend and JW,
It doesn't matter the cause of this leak, whether accidental or TPTB, or if it is in the Gulf of Mexico or China, what amtters is that it is a truely
horrible event with very dire portents. It is something that deserves to be given the respect it deserves. Just like our home, planet Earth.
