What we need to do now is to focus our thoughts and prayers on healing our planet and the human beings living around the gulf.
We must demand an end to the oil-based economy and the release of modern energy production tech.

I have family in Baton Rouge and New Orleans, I also have family in Panama City and Ft Walton Beach, and none of them are having any kind of problems, my aunt lives directly on the beach. Their gardens are doing well, they are more concerned about landfall if the recent tropical storm moves in, and as far as my family in Louisiana go, they are not sick either, no symptoms or bleeding no headaches, my cousin has been on the beach every day, doing cleanup (bp hired) and he is having no ill effects from it. I am not saying something couldn't come of it all, but the rectal bleeding and Obama telling some other nation millions will die, I don't believe those reports.

So dangerous has the Gulf Coast environment become to human beings the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a warning that, in part, says: “People, including pregnant women, can be exposed to these chemicals by breathing them (air), by swallowing them (water, food), or by touching them (skin). If possible, everyone, including pregnant women, should avoid the oil and spill-affected areas.”
