This is rather sad ... and I made a comment to BP about its practices - I doubt it will be published as the newspaper site seems to be looking for comments that support BP rather than pulling them up short for damaging Whales with seismic testing in Australian waters.

My husband says I'm wasting my time caring about this stuff as nothing will change... it might be so, but one does have to try!

Hardly surprising, and sad.

you can tell a lot about a person or society by the way it treats the beings it doesn't think it has to treat well
if we devalue anything we stand to lose everything
life has value beyond measure
Peace and Love

Sadly, it appears there is no room for wildlife in a modern, industrialized, capitalist driven, free market world.

Unfortunately, this should not be a surprise to anyone...the problem is making BP deal with it, whether it is to fund a special rehabilitation center for the wildlife that they have made sick....(like that is going to happen) but one could always dream

Oil and Nature just don't mix. Whenever an oil spill occurs these companies have to be made responsible for All of the damage, and see it through to the finish and they need to do studies to find out how to prevent oil spills in the first place. Prevention is better than cure. These dolphins and other marine life should not have to suffer as a result of these spills.

This is beyond too sad...I can't stand this any longer! We MUST STOP KILLING and forcing life to suffer. BP and all who make this world filthy and soil the soul's journey must be shut down forever. We must demand clean energy, and we ourselves must stop eating sentient beings and creating such waste. Disregard for life is evil and is making all of us lose, all of us deprived of the joys of living here! Causing illness is inexcusable! Poisoning life is unspeakable!

Hope BP monopoly will soon end. New technologies will replace them in future.

Sad. Once again you can clearly see man's greedy, capitalist, bloodstained fingerprints all over this. The fallout from that spill will be felt for decades. :(
Thanks Agnes.

Well, of course they are. Petroleum in one's body is never a good thing. BP doesn't care though. I was at a meeting today to work against oil rigs on the east coast and someone was telling us that BP has commercials running in LA all the time. they supply TV"s and equipment to the media there. they are totally running the who and of course the government there couldn't care less. A lot of the people there are against the oil companies but at the same time they are providing jobs and so people are dependent on them. If the oil companies pulled out suddenly many people would be left high and dry. Of course the goal should be to train them in new clean energy jobs. Big oil companies- it is like fighting giants.Something has to be done though because they have run amuck and have no sense of morals or ethics and they worship only paper with $$$ on it.

This is why we have no business drilling for oil off shore. We have no way of protecting the animals and the environment when there is a disaster. And this won't be the last time this crap happens.
