Not to be a Debbie Downer, but man it makes me sick to watch what's going on down in the Gulf of Mexico. I imagine that spill will eclipse the Exxon spill. What's to come from this? We still need oil. We're not gonna stop driving, or using petroleum. It's hard to believe this won't happen again, or hasn't come very close to happening several times before. I'm going on the hopes that some sort of law is passed to require the drill platforms to test and exercise the blow off preventors on a regular basis and to add modifications or safeguards to prevent thier damage when a platform collapses.
Didn't mean to be down on this, but every day I hear the latest developments, it makes me pray for those who live down there and that it doesn't happen up here.
That's it. I'm done.
