The Catastrophe Continues

When I first looked at this live feed from the Gulf of Mexico, the total amount of oil spilled was 22 million gallons. That was on June 1, 2010.

 

I really don’t care who is to blame for the initial explosion. I really don’t care who is to blame for the initial slow response. What I really care about now, is that BP (who owns the rig that exploded) and our government (which allowed the explosion to occur because they dropped the ball on inspections and enforcement) are doing nothing to stop the leak.

Shut your mouths, stop pointing fingers, get to work. JUST.STOP.THE.LEAK.
