Show & Tell: June 18/10 – Gulf Oil Spill Edition

Today marks Day 60 of the BP Oil Spill disaster and from what I have read there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight.  This is one of the worst ecological disasters in our history and the devastating effects of this oil spill will be felt for generations to come.  I don’t understand why we are so dependant on fossil fuels when there are so many clean energy alternatives out there.  We, as a global community, need to do something to end this disaster and prevent things like this from happening again.  It is breaking my heart to see the animals suffering, their habitats dying and people of the Gulf Coast losing their livelihood.  If you have any suggestions or links on ways we can get involved and help, please post in the comments below.
