Stop It, Stop It Now!

This is beyond ridiculous. I have no words to describe how angry and frustrated, and sad I am.
I live in West Coast of Florida and this is no joke.
Every day, thousands and thousands of gallons of oil keeps spillng out.

I take my girls to the beach almost every weekend. The beautiful Lido Beach we always go to hasn't seen the effect of the craziness, but what if BP can't come up with the solution to contain the oil? Then what?
What am I going to tell my children, if the oil reaches the land here, they can no longer play at the beach? Or what if we start to seeing the dead fish washed ashore or oil covered Pelican or birds reach the beach? It's really scary and upsetting.
Have you seen the video, how scary it looks?
I feel like our ocean life in the Gulf is over.
And I feel helpless....

When I saw the first picture, I thought it was a piece of artwork. To know that is the oil spill is a blow to the gut. WTF BP!

Maki, I'm so with you. I am seriously having so much anxiety about this thing, that I can barely sleep. Have you seen the video of the broken pipe?

It's really scary and upsetting. I hope they figure someout soon because the consequences are already bad enough and could get even worse.

Seeing that picture gives me a different sense of the reality of oil spills.

I hope it gets cleaned up but negligence and stupidity cannot be corrected easily.

*HUGS*

It sucks for sure. Surely they will get it fixed up. I hope they do anyway being a Gulf Coast cracker myself.
