Deepwater Horizon Disaster

Deepwater Horizon Disaster

April 20th is the fifth anniversary of of what has been called the worst environmental
disaster in US history.  We can not let this happen again.  BP says everything is fine in the gulf,
The oil is gone...all is well.  The damage to the miles of shoreline and wetlands have been restored.
The marine life is healthy and abundant, and safe to thank you.
Researchers say different.. five years is too early to make a sound statement on long term effects.
The federal government has proposed new offshore drilling for oil off the Atlantic coast.
The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management Draft includes oil drilling in the mid and south 
Atlantic and even the Arctic Ocean! We need to switch to alternative fuels (NOT natural gas)
that are sustainable and renewable.
If you agree.. please sign this petition from Surfrider Foundation: NOT THE ANSWER!

Deepwater Horizon Disaster could have been prevented!
A very interesting book on how BP operates please read: Run to Failure
A good article to read from Reuters:Browne's BP cost-cutting led to Gulf spill

With Earth Day on Wednesday the 22nd, we need to start making some changes.

Have a great week and get outside!

Next week some new recipes!
