I still can't believe this is happening to our beautiful coastlines and marshes! The whole thing seems so surreal!? How in the world could something like this have even happened in this day and age!?
Today via PBS, BP has 2 more "options" to try and stop this oil leak! The meter above was from the PBS site and shows how much oil has leaked into the Gulf already! It is just Sickening!!!
BP's chief of Gulf Coast restoration Bob Dudley called the well polluting the Gulf of Mexico "just a very unusual problem." Oh my goodness! This is SO Not "just an unusual problem!" It looks to me to be a Terrible, Horrible Very Bad "Problem!"
The links below tell this horrific story of the Gulf Spill Disaster far better then I could ever do. But be advised you may need a whole box of tissues to read some of it, I know I did! :( It truly is the worse oil spill in the US and not just for the Gulf areas, but for us "all!"
So Sad! So Sad!

"The amount of oil spilled so far could only fill the cavernous New Orleans Superdome about one-seventh of the way up. On the other hand, it could fill 15 Washington Monuments and two-thirds of the way up a 16th. If the oil were poured on a football field -- complete with endzones -- it would measure nearly 100 yards high."
