BP oil spill and the top kill

Top kill was the topnotch kill. It also failed and horror continues. It is so sad. 11 people dead on the day of the rig explosion and since then it has killed a lot of marine creatures and birds. Killed the hopes and survival of fishermen in the gulf and tourism operators. Who knows how many more human lives will be lost because of this ongoing horror. The impact on coastal communities is already being felt and more is to follow.

It is about time to put a complete moratorium on off-shore oil drilling and better and stronger laws to control the unbridled profiteering of oil companies, Wall Street, and other national and international corporations.
