This catastrophe shouldn't have happened in the first place - DAMMIT!
There's only one solution for a sustainable future:
"NO MORE OFFSHORE DRILLING!" (Avaaz Petition)
To President Obama and members of Congress:
"We urge you to permanently call off plans to open up more of the US coastline to dangerous offshore drilling. Instead, invest in a CLEAN and SAFE ENERGY FUTURE"
488,990 have signed the petition. Let's get to our delivery target of 500,000!

Thank You! Muchas Gracias! Namaste! Merci! Danke Schön! Arigato! Muito Obrigado! Tack!

Thanks Anna.

I agree with Ben.

BP needs to be kept alive and kicking so that it can pay its damages bill, no matter who its owners might be. That's better than the USA paying the bills because it breached its duty of trust by permitting this kind of drilling in the first place.

BP needs to find a way to pay up, without compromising national security in the US. They have caused enough problems for our country already.

This is all a GIGANTIC--CONSPIRACY---OBAMA WANTS TO GET THE CLIMATE ENERGY BILL PASSED---AND WE SURE DON'T WANT THE ...ARABS OWNING STOCKS IN BP--I WILL NOT SIGN THIS STUPID PETETION----THE HOUSE PASSED AN EMERGENCY FUNDING BILL FOR 9 BILLION FOR NUCLEAR LOANS..TO BUILD NUCLEAR REACTORS---
[ FOR THE CLEAN ENERGY ACT HE WANTS PASSED ] AND IT SAID HE IS ASKING FOR
$ 36 BILLION IN THE 2011 BUDGET ...TO BUILD NUCLEAR REACTORS--WHICH WILL USE COAL. AND THE ELECTRIC BILLS WILL GO UP BY 50 PERCENT IS WHAT THEY SAID.PLUS IF PASSED--THE CLEAN ENERGY BILL IS GOING TO MAKE NANCY PELOSI AND AL GORE-----RICH. YOU PEOPLE BETTER WAKE UP--THIS IS NOT GOING TO BE CLEAN ENERGY--IT IS GOING TO RUIN AMERICA. IT AMOUNTS TO REDISTRIBUTION OF MONEY, AND BENEFITS OBAMA'S PLAN OF COMMUNISM AND DICTATORSHIP.
