The Coastal Crisis

We all know that BP is doing something to stop the oil spill but, it is not enough! 45 days had passed, still the crude oil emit tons of oil. Look at the dying bird in Louisiana! That is really a sad and heartbreaking sight! (photo courtesy:audubonoffloridanews.org)My husband and I love the beach since we live close by the amazing view of the Gulf Coast. Everyday, we drove by the Beach Boulevard and just enjoyed the beautiful scenery of the beach area facing the Gulf of Mexico. When the Deepwater Horizon Oil Rig exploded last April 20,2010, the people living in the Gulf Coast area are truly devastated. Fishing Industry will be paralyzed and like a domino effect, it would mean job lost to those who rely on fishing. If the fishermen can not supply the demands on the market, the Business Industry who delivers seafood directly to the consumers will be badly affected.

Just the other week, fresh oysters was already $10.00/dozen, twice from the original price they served. Restaurants felt the scarcity of seafood products and they were given a limited purchase. This crisis is Ecological and Environmental in nature and it would take years and years before it can return to its normal balance. How many lives will be affected by then?
