Its sad to see all of this, think of all the care and works and decades it took for us to get this wildlife where we wanted it protected, all the people that volunteered over the years, the law enforcement action on any one that even threw a cigarett butt into the water , it all paid off, and in one single incident all that was shot to shit forever.

wow. amazing that we can see these pictures.isnt oil from earth originally? then earth will be fine. this is just human-kind ruining it for everyone else again.water is poisined enough as it is, so be it that earth has to sacrifice humans to heal itself. earth has given us so much, and all we wanted was more. who knows, maybe we'll be back in 10,000 years to ruin it all again?
Come on people... don't you think they could have stopped this already if they wanted to...? Blow the drilled hole, do something...? They don't want to destroy the well ... Because there is money to be made out of it... But the disaster that has happened... It could have been stopped.
I am FOR safe nuclear power, but I have to say that this tragedy has nothing to do with what may have happened had we explored nuclear power further. First of all, we have. We employ nuclear power plants across the country, perhaps too few. Second, thank God an error on this scale didn't happen at a plant. Third, let's all take EVERYONE'S concerns seriously and not call each other names. What can we all agree on? I believe both nuclear, solar, hydro, and wind power are worth investing into. Every source of power has inherent problems. What can we live with? Please, let's not use hypotheticals and conjecture as fact. No one wanted this to happen. We simply don't know what would have happened if... Let's just deal with our current situation.
i hate that people are lashing out at one another on this site. humans are to blame period....just because you drive a hybrid doesn't mean you are exempt....we all have out share of need for the use of oil.....not everyone can afford a new hybrid, it doesn't mean we wanted this to happen, cars were around before most of us were born as i seem to understand. stop pointing fingers of blame, unless you would like to put a down payment on a new prius for the rest of us!
Nah. It's not \"all our faults\" ... there's not a thing inherently wrong with drilling for oil All our energy sources, even the \"green\" ones, involve a certain amount of risk. Accidents will happen. This one was preventable, no question, and THAT IT WAS NOT PREVENTED is the fault of the corporate/bureaucratic mentality seen in EVERY INDUSTRY OF OUR NATION, from retail to ag to government to the oil industry. It's that broken system which lets the accountants run the show instead of the field personnel ... which overrides the common sense and prudent caution of the men placed in charge over the safety of an oil rig's crew with the let's-not-waste-a-penny, you're-fired-if-you-stop-the-drilling attitude coming from HQ. The toolpusher saw the problems and wanted to halt the operation for maintenance of the blowout preventer, but knew he'd lose his job over it when the company man was pushing them to complete the well. He should have stuck to his guns, of course -- but it's a poisonous corporate culture that makes hte little guy afraid to do his job!! 076b4e4f54
