Another Oil Rig Explodes in the Gulf

Posted in News by luvmyplanet on 02/09/2010

The latest tragedy in offshore drilling occurred around 10:00 EDT this morning. Although there were no human casualties, it sickens me to think about the ecosystems and animals that will be impacted. (To get an idea of the life that will be endangered, read “The BP Cover-Up” in the most recent issue of Mother Jones.)

It makes me wonder if Congress will continue to do the bidding of its lords and masters in the oil lobby — or if they will finally wake up and do what is best for life on this planet. Sadly, I believe the status quo will prevail. It makes me wonder how they sleep at night or are able to look their children and grandchildren in the eyes.
