There are times when I am ashamed of being part of the Human Race.

There are events in history which make humanity hang their heads in shame; the Gulf Oil Spill goes beyond shame and embarrassment and forces us to stop avoiding questions that have gone unanswered.  Since the rise of the industrial revolution, we have watched decades go by with countless acts of human inflicted terrorism on our planet and wildlife.

I don’t think that I can put into words, what these pictures can convey:

  1. It is so sad Rachey! This has been going on for so long, it’s unbelievable! Every day I hear about this spill. I sometimes wonder if it ever will be under control….It’s something like 100,000+ barrels a day that is leaking. I just recently heard about a second oil well that has been leaking in the area that nobody knew about (or at least it hasn’t been talked about)…and it has been leaking for a really long time. But “it’s a small leak” and that’s why it’s not really a big deal. All the damage that has been done to our poor earth with just this accident, it’s so depressing; the drilling, the spill, the fucking stupid chemical dispersants that have been used to dissolve the oil, I want to cry every time I think about it!
