Hi I'm new here and have been reading posts for a long time but finally decided to join in. I am not sure where this post belongs so I hope no one
gets miffed. I heard a few weeks back that a box approximately the size of a refrigerator with BP on it washed ashore somewhere in Florida. I never
heard anything else. I imagine it came off the rig during the explosion... Just curious.
He explains hows there is an apparent media blackout in the area, so its up to independant people to document and spread the word of the disaster. He
explains how the process works and asks for people to get involved. Get a kite and a camera and help map the area, he explains the pretty low cost of
everything and asks if you can't come down and help to help in some way.
I think I'll send the last 10$ I have in my paypal account. It seems like sending it to them, would probably do a greater good than sending it
Atleast to them it'll go towards resources that are helping to tell the tale that the media isn't telling anyone.
But if this thread is representative of the amount of interest in what they are doing....I don't know but I don't see it faring well.
People are constantly wanting a chance to help, and exclaiming at the chances that are rebuked. But here is a real chance to do something. Even
if its only helping to get the story out so people know the full extent of whats going on, it seems with the clampdown on the areas affected things
like this may be one of the only ways.
It's obvious people aren't going to be a part of the clean up, or be able to walk around documenting whats going on.
Here's to somebody doing something. Lets just hope more people do the same.
I thought it was great to see someone doing something real towards letting people know whats going on. I wish I lived closer, I'd love to be involved
with this project.
I don't really have all the supplies, but I'm going to try to get a "mapping" project going. Mainly for fun, and it seems like a novel idea. I
live right beside the boundaries of a national park, and there are always deer and other animals grazing the area. I think it would be cool to get a
camera up over them on a kite snapping pictures.
And overall the idea is applicable in a lot of situations. It could be used to get "in" many places you otherwise aren't allowed.
