Now is the Time for our Tears

Posted on 8th July 2010 by admin in Rivers of the world

With the BP spill spewing mega amounts of oil into the Gulf of Mexico there are so many concerns that one becomes overwhelmed. One thing that we learned during our visit to Valdez Alaska was that the thousands of people who were cleaning up the mess of the Exxon spill were basically unprotected from the toxins used in the mop up operation. Many of these people came down with cancer years later. BP brags about the numbers of fisherman and oil workers they are employing yet they are not providing respirators or proper protection. What price are these workers paying?

  1. I feel that with the current problem with BP, The cleanup has not beed handled as well as it should have been. Also, I feel that BP should have a major punishment for the problems this spill has caused. Killing animals and poluting the water are nkot just simple factors of life! As for the workers, they are risking their life everyday and are not getting the special attention they deserve to protect themselves. The price that these workers are paying is their own life.
