The American Corporate Empire won't stop until our air and water are poisoned beyond all recovery. It seems profit motive trumps survival for the elites.

If you kill the ocean you kill us all...we are symbiotic. Humans are idiots.

The world needs to switch to appropriae renewable energy. Use less oil - go car-free if you can ...

Reading the blog of Roz Savage as she rowed her way around the world gave everyone an insight into the extent of damage that we are doing to the world's oceans. To hear of this development is disappointing.

Noted. Not sure how Obama can say he is concerned about the climate on one hand, and then consider something like this on the other. Impact on the environment is all connected.

sad....keep reminding Mr. Obama that "offshore drilling kills" and doesn't help stop climate change....

These people don't seem to care about the faces that are perishing before their very eyes. Why would they care about lives that they have never seen? No one is safe from their greed.
