Heartache in the Gulf Coast - The Disaster that Never Ends

It seems the heartache created by BP in the Gulf Coast is never ending. The frustratingly slow process of cleanup that you or I may feel watching this disaster unfold on CNN and other news, has got to be magnified 100x for those that are living in or near the affected areas.  So much loss... so much devastation to wildlife, the wetlands, the local economy...the health issues... the list goes on and on.

Help keep shining the light on the problem and possible solutions, including some innovative non-toxic methods such as the munching microbes in this YouTube video:

or the systems backed by actor Kevin Costner (whose brother is one of the innovative scientists who invented these units)

In the mean time... maybe you'll commit to avoiding BP-owned gas stations (here on the West Coast, that includes ARCO and AM/PM stations, and/or participate in a growing number of local and national efforts to help out.

Yo can keep up-to-date with the latest developments on this catastrophe at CNN.com.
