Not doing the prompt today.

Ranting a little instead.

The BP oil spill is terrifying. It makes all other environmental disasters look like tiny accidents while this... this could be catastrophic. What if they don't fix it. How long until there is no more oil running out? Weeks? Months? Years? Will it cover all the oceans in greasy tar and sludge? These are questions I want answers to.

What is DC doing? Trying to find someone to blame. What aren't they trying to find more solutions? The time for assigning blame and sanctions is later. NOW is the time to STOP this disaster. This is not just an inconvenience to the Gulf states. This can affect the entire planet... and all of us.

Here is a link to a view of the spill and the latest news:
