What BP Will NOT Allow You To See

This is a dolphin, rotting on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico. Filled with oil, suffocating from the entrenched polymers contained within its lungs, it died a horrible death and now decays on the shoreline, immersed in the weeds. The dolphin, sadly, is not alone.

British Petroleum (BP) will not allow the President of the United States to see what is truly happening on a large scale throughout the spill area. Apparently, the PoTUS is only allowed to see certain aspects of it from sea and land. Sadly, as much as I am NOT a fan of the Obama administration, I have to hope he'd care somewhere in that liberal heart of his about the ecology of the spill, the environmental impact beyond the human.

If humans fail to comprehend or care about the wildlife of the sea, then we have lost all hope. Life started in the sea with its rich abundance of oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen, and calcium. This is not a chemistry or biology lesson for the day, it is simply my opinion on a sad, tragic disaster.
