The worst ecological disaster ever is in the works. BP's sunken platform is like an undersea tap polluting the seas. I am not a drilling expert but for the love of my life, I cant explain to myself why there was no mechanism to shutoff the well in such a disaster. The political blame game has begun and billions are being spent on cleanup. The earliest time when the leak will get stopped is at least 10 days away. This is something that is going to leave a mark on the Gulf of mexico for a long long time - all because of our love of oil. I worry about the reefs off the coast of Miami, hope the oil never reaches there.
