The Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill has been designated a spill of national significance. However, our Government has done so very little to stop the oil from damaging our precious coastlines. Our wildlife and fish are suffering and our citizens are at risk too. This disaster is not a right or left issue – nor should it be a fight whether we drill or not drill – This emergency is to save four important and valuable state coastlines, as well as our people too.
The oil spill in the Gulf coast is a disaster of epic proportions that will not end until the damaged well is capped and the massive amount of oil that has spilled into the Gulf of Mexico is some how corralled and collected. However, the Gulf states are now fighting the government in addition to the oil spill. The Federal Government is in the way and is impeding efforts to hold the oil back from spreading further and is hindering cleanup efforts.
