so frustating

I can't believe that the oil spill has not been stopped. The poor wildlife that are needlessly suffering. Geesh..i bet if it were kids in the water..they'd had that capped plugged in no time...

Here is an organization that is helping the oil spilled birds...great organization

www.ibrrc.org/

Here is another link how oil effects birds

Yes,it is absolutely horribleI heard at least 120 large Turtles have died,but I am sure there is more,Dolphins,Sea-birds and anything else in the sea.
From what I've heard,it will be August before their latest idea will be tried

They have a large financial incentive to stop it early--they have to pay for the clean up. If there's one thing in this I don't doubt, it's BP's sincerity to stop the flow. It's the events leading up to the blow-out that are more of a question

I know it is a lot of money to clean up...however the US government has billions of dollars...It should have been fixed awhile back. They seem not to be concerned as much as they should. I mean hey it is just wildlife...(note the sarcasum) Like I said..if it was kids in the water...it would have been plugged when it happened. I do agree with that yes, there are way to unanswered questions that lead to the blow out. I think alot of it has to do with greed greed greed.

and one of the head honcho's had the nerve to say "I can't wait till its stopped so I can have my life back", excuse me jerk face, the animals, fish, birds etc, not to mention those that have lost jobs, the set back to the eco system etc will never get back their "life" as it was......it could take decades to repair the damage
