Right now I don't know what to say about this. I've seen the pictures and all I can do is cry. The magnitude of this disaster is beyond belief. Yes I know that states will be affected in regards to tourism. Yes, I know that fishermen will be affected because of the loss of sea life. But the states will recover eventually as will the fishermen.
The greatest loss in my opinion is the wildlife.
Imagine being covered in oil and not being able to move, to clean it off of you, or to breathe. Imagine being stuck in it, dying a slow agonizing death. That is what is happening to the wildlife along the Gulf Coast. The ecology of nature is delicate and when imbalanced it creates a disaster that has a huge ripple effect. .
Sometimes I get so disgusted at what we as humans have done to this earth. We're supposed to be good stewards. What happened?
