Wildlife Area Threatened By BP Oil
A Wildlife Refuge sign sits in the water at South East Pass near the mouth of the Mississippi River in the Gulf of Mexico as oil leaking from the Deepwater Horizon wellhead continues to spread Friday, April 30, 2010. The area is unprotected by booms. A BP leased oil platform exploded April 20 and sank after burning. Eleven workers are missing, presumed dead. A scientist from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration had concluded that oil is leaking at the rate of 5,000 barrels a day, not 1,000 as had been estimated.
Tell your Senators that “drill, baby, drill” and business as usual have to end and that there’s no place in the current climate bill for industry giveaways and dirty energy.
