For all the creatures from micro-organisims to whales living in the ocean that will be their life for who knows how long as billions of gallons of oil pollute the already taxed ocean.
The time has passed for allowing the oil industry chiefs to convince us that oil is the best source of energy.
Like the big investment banks that recently burnt out the economy with “exotic” investment products they could not control OR clean up-
Now the oil chiefs are risking the eco-balance of this planet with methods for extracting oil they cannot control OR clean up.
Without a healthy ocean the human race will head into decline.
President Obama has taken the stand that we need to switch from fossil fuels to alternative energies and we the citizenry need to cover his back.
“Our continued dependence on fossil fuels will jeopardize our national security,” he declared. “It will smother our planet. And it will continue to put our economy and our environment at risk.”
But there is an answer – Mr Obama has proposed to get rid of billions of tax credits meant for oil companies and place those tax credits into alternative fuel research and green companies.
If you think this is a great idea please contact congress, you can be a part of the green revolution and saving this planet of ours.
