Grim reading. How many more reminders do we need that things need to change? I'll join BarbCat in a prayer for a better 2011.

Unfortunately they will always exist certain irresponsible people whoever will destroy no matter what... but they forget that they live on the same planet like everyone else and this planet must be protected.

Noted, I think rather then praying we should get up, get out and educate the masses, since so many seem to think the only answer is to leave these matters up to their g-d/s. Lets get people to act rather then sitting around, playing the waiting game.

Noted and it's not only in America like this, even here in Australia the weather is up and down. It's not as hot as it used to be, although we reckon it's going to get hot all of a sudden. We've had so much rain that even the desert was full of flowers. But Queensland is usually dry and the have floods this year. And they want to drill for more oil here in and out of the water. We had a big oil spill nr North West of WA in the Timor Sea. The same thing happened there as in the Gulf in America. If we don't look after the Earth or Oceans it'll be the end of us Humans!!

Oh man... I hope 2011 will prove to be a better year for our environment, or we'll more than likely end up suffering some unnamed consequences...

Noted and thank you for sharing this sad, but true news. My best wishes for the new year - not only for the people, but especially for the environment, our dear planet - if only we all realized how much we need her!

This is why we need everyone involved... no matter what age, race, color, creed, we are all racing for that cliff that will end our species. But we still have time and we still have hope but we must be all that more aggressive toward saving our planet.
It has come down to this... there are 3 groups. The first group will rape and pillage our planet for everything they can get because they are only worried about themselves and today's profits.
The second group is larger but not well organized... they are like most the rest of us, concerned for tomorrow and fearful for the future of our world.
Then there is the last group... the one's with their fingers in their ears and their eyes tightly closed saying "it can't happen.... global warming is all lies".
If the third group would ever wake up and the 2nd group would ever get organized, then our world will stand a chance.

Thanks for this overview. It is hard to believe that the religious right is trying to discredit environmentalists by labelling them the lurking green dragon. Maybe if they read articles like this it will give them a reality check!

Some humans are good at destroying, but there are many who are trying to fix it thank heavens there are those people on Earth. I feel sad for the animals on this planet
