Beyond the Oil Spill…
That tragedy is the ill and declining health of the Gulf of Mexico, including the enormous dead zone off the mouth of the Mississippi and the alarmingly rapid disappearance of Louisiana’s coastal wetlands, roughly 2,000 square miles smaller than they were 80 years ago.

Lets not forget that for a while there was a sense of smug complacency our there that this spill was not really as bad as had been feared. Reminds me of climate change and the GOP who regard the issue as nothing to be worried about.
