WTF

It's been over a month since the explosion/sinking of BP's oil rig Deepwater Horizon and crude oil is still flowing. Images like these just make me feel so helpless and pretty much like an asshole. I know I am not BP, but I still feel so much guilt over what we are doing to this world. Think about how messy it is when you spill olive oil while cooking. Now imagine trying to clean up this shit-show. Fucking unbelievable.

love when you do these landscape-y images on posts, I really do. Talking of this here shit-show, I heard that the money bp have to spend on this and cleaning it up is like a fifth of what it would cost them yearly to make their oil rigs safe so they basically chance it. Fucking jokers.

I am really glad you posted this. I feel the same way. Also I LOVE sea turtles and I think it is tragic that these animals who leave peacefully for years and years are being killed by this stupid company.

Our government is clearly run by the oil companies. It's as scary as the oil-spill itself.

I live in New Orleans and you can smell the oil outside. It is completely ruining our coastline and killing our wildlife. Not to mention, hurricane season is about to open. If another hurricane similar to Katrina happens, the entire southern tip of the state is fucked.
