No one who cares about the Environment can fail to be upset and angry over the devastation to the wildlife in the Gulf of Mexico that has been caused by the leak from the BP operated oil rig.
I am also upset about the “politicizing” of this huge environmental disaster, where the facts have become muddied, in order that various politicians can make themselves appear in a better light at the expense of those they oppose and other innocent parties. Which is why I was so pleased to see a Squidoo lens, published by Daybreak that sticks to the facts and steers clear of politics.
BP Deepwater Horizon Louisiana Oil Spill , outlines what happened on 20 April 2010, when the Transocean Deepwater Horizon drilling rig 130 miles southeast of New Orleans, Louisiana blew up, with the loss of 20 lives and goes on to outline how those in need of help can get it.
While not belittling the impact of the disaster, Daybreak sets out to give links to help and further information in a factual and dispassionate way. There’s also links for people looking to volunteer to help.
