Does anyone care an estimated 200,000 species of birds are at risk in the Gulf of Mexico?
I figure the number is a lot higher. They are suffering a slow and uncalled-for death at the hands of the USA. And there are other mammals, plant life and beaches being destroyed by the greedy, money-hungry vampires of British Petroleum.
As I turn on the 6 p.m. news that briefly covers the situation happening south of our border, my heart breaks seeing images of waterfowl struggling to clean themselves, not knowing that death awaits them.
You would think there would be a world outcry, yet I hear nothing.
I see suits on TV, representatives of BP, smiling for cameras. They should have tears in their eyes, not smiles on their faces.
This is an outrage.
The world should sue the USA. We, a country of the United Nations, should be able to stop this catastrophe.
We need to protect our oceans, not poke holes in the seabed.
It also makes me sick to my stomach to see these animals being used to sell dishwashing detergent.
I don’t know what they’re selling, but I’m not buying it.
What are we teaching our children? When will we learn this is BS?
I would expect a lot more than what I’m hearing and seeing. We need to band together and stop this now, before it’s too late, if it’s not already.
Please, don’t ignore this; our oceans are being raped. Cover yourself in tar head-to-toe, then make a sandwich and enjoy it.
