Fly over the spill site and see the oiled waters and wetlands with EDF Executive Director David Yarnold and Senior Director of Mississippi River Paul Harrison. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plb2efJBhrc
It is crazy that this spill is still going on despite BP's efforts. Are they really lacking the means? Is is really such a tricky situation? Why dont they get more help, why isnt the government doing more? ARGH, if this keeps going we'll still have oil flowing around during winter. I like Costners machine to retrieve the oil but I'm not sure how much it will really help.

So I'm just as angry as anyone about the BP spill (which hopefully hasnt faded from our memories) but I've heard some counter arguments. Personally, they arent very convincing, but they may be worth a listen to. Essentially, the BP oil spill has its irreversible consequences, no doubt, but does the environment it's in really justify the attacks?
Like I said, I would say yes. But if you want to hear the other side, click the hyperlink for a story.
