Disaster



OMG, it is really disastrous on the Gulf Coast. I can't bear what is happening to the environment, to the livelihood of those along the coast, to the beautiful beaches.


I found this quote to be the height of stupidity:


"The ocean will take care of this on its own if it was left alone and left out there. It's natural. It's as natural as the ocean water is."-- Rush Limbaugh, quoted by the St. Petersburg Times, arguing that a cleanup of the oil spill off the Lousiana coast is unnecessary.


I am somewhat, shall we say, less than a fan of Rush Limbaugh. This quote shows why.

Despite being fairly conservative, I'm not a Limbaugh fan, either.

Truly a sad situation! What a mess!!

A mess indeed, when will we ever learn? As you say so sad to think of all who will suffer, sadly not the firt time this has happened, I can only hope it will be the last.

What is particularly painful is all the life forms who have no say in the destruction of their world...we can be an arrogant species and I hope we do begin to think more mindfully about using the oceans as another commodity.

Limbaugh is a buffoon, in my opinion.

It's always tragic when these accidents happen. Nothing is fail safe, and, we are still and will be largely dependent on fossil fuels for some time to come.

And, we need to get more of our oil from around here rather than the Middle East.

This is going to be just devastating all the way down the line, and Limbaugh is a moron.
