Lately BP's been running these commercials about how hard they're working to fix what they've done. Well, here's a problem. They've already damaged so much wildlife and water that most of it can't be fixed quickly. Some of the damage will take years to clean up. Not to mention that right after the spill BP secretly put toxic chemicals into the water to try and clean up some of the oil. What did that achieve? More dead animals and toxicated water. So, what now BP? What's the next great plan?

I wrote this article mainly to just see what other people have to say on the oil spill. It's a major accident that should've been prevented.

I'm glad you wrote of this.  I think many people care--maybe not enough-- but feel helpless to impact the systems & powers that be. I write my senators and sign petitions, but and don't know what good is accomplished for the most part. And I, like so many of us, with the weight of everyday responsibilties find it hard to stay  on top of all the world's probelms.
