The BP oil spill in the Gulf Coast touched the shore yesterday.

This oil spill is quickly on its way to eclipsing the Exxon Valdez oil spill from 1989 – which they’re still cleaning up.  The oil spill is leaking 210,000 gallons of oil a day. 11 workers are presumed dead, 17 were injured, and besides unknown death to underwater wildlife, tens of thousands of animals are in danger along the Gulf Coast.

Just try and think about the damaging effects of oil to not only wildlife, but humans as well.

    Haha, this isn’t really a photo essay. More like a video blurb.
