I find it hard to care about anything elseposted by The Vidiot @ 7:14 AM Permalink Who Obama picked as a supreme court justice is about as important as a gnat on a dog's ass.
The oil spill, if left unchecked, could mean the end of life as we know it. And guess what? Those criminals don't have a plan B.
See, if that spill continues unabated, the gulf and a huge portion of the Atlantic will become a deadzone. The plankton dies, then the fish that eat the plankton will die and so and so forth right up the food chain and you know what rests at the top of that food chain? Us. Sure, we don't rely entirely on fish for our diets, but lots of animals do. And lots of biological cycles rely on the oceans. Things like carbon absorption, just to name a big one.
This spill could cause the decimation of a goodly portion of the creatures on this planet.
Lord, if you're out there, or, Aliens, if you're watching, NOW IS THE TIME!
