The BP Gulf of Mexico oil Spill still gushing 4,200,000 US gallons of crude oil every day even after 40 days since the initial explosion on April 20th. The environmental disaster is astronomical, with over 4,000 species of birds and marine life in danger. Countless dead birds, fish, turtles, and other animals already been found on the shores covered in oil.
We can not let this incident go forgotten. So many oil spills in the past have occurred, so why are we making the same mistakes over and over again? (Read my journals for more details [link][link]

The pain and sorrows our own idiocy causes to the life that also inhabits this glorious planet! Oil spills, in other words, death in a nutshell or should I say plastic container! [link] Will we repent in time?!
The Gulf wasn't that great to begin with. Before the spill, it was 71/100 on the environmental reading, right now it's at about 66/100. This was due to over-fishing, pollution, and losing the marshes by blocking the Mississippi from doing her job. So we have to make it better than before, as the Gulf will still get hurt after the oils gone.
Sadly, I remember the horror of seeing oil in the water first-hand. Living on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, I would listen to the local news as they interviewed people who were afraid of the oil for selfish reasons. Sure, there were stories about the animals dying because of it, but the ratio seemed uneven.
Animals died because of ignorant reason... It's heart-wrenching to see these poor creatures covered in slime just because they were doing what they did every day.
