|Submerged oil at Bon Secour shoreline|
I think that America is starting to get it. Please watch this video of Louisiana congressman breaking down during hearing on oil spill.
As he very adequately says, “these are not just Louisiana’s wet lands, they are America’s wet lands”
I am sure that you have heard of the current oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico. If you haven’t, here is a link – please come back after you have caught up with current events.
I am just aghast at how stupid these companies are. Current reports are that they didn’t install an “acoustic switch” on the well. From NewsInferno:
The Deepwater Horizon oil rig that exploded last week was not outfitted with a safety device that might have prevented the massive oil spill now nearing the U.S. Gulf Coast. The device, known as an acoustic switch, is a last-resort protection against underwater spills, and is required by regulators in Norway and Brazil. Unfortunately, the U.S. has no such regulation for oil wells operating off of its shores.
