Cooperation Is Needed

I have some more thoughts about possibilities to help with the oil spill. Yes, itís easy for me to sit here at my computer and not do any of the work Iím suggesting. I have a job and our money is tight, so I couldnít take off even if I wanted to. If I did live in the Gulf area I would help out in my spare time since I would be nearby. I have a terrible fear this will prove to be the greatest ecological disaster in the United States, and potentially the world.

Finger pointing wonít get anything done. Many politicians are worthless. Rodney Dangerfield has more respect than Congress! They only care about themselves, so the hell with them. Money and power doesnít mean you are right. You may get your way, but it doesnít mean you are right. That applies anywhere.

Can successful businesses take the lead because they get things done? Wal-Mart, other successful businesses, church groups, any organizations. Your local areas know what is needed and what can be done because itís unique to you. Those of us who donít live there donít know.

Can untainted fish, crabs, shrimp, etc. be put into fish farms. Iím talking of instead of catching oiled fish in the open water, raise untainted fish in abandoned ponds or reservoirs, or something similar. Are there any theme parks or something similar that have closed down that can be used? Iím also talking about transporting dolphins, lobsters, turtles, birds, manatees, and other sea life and plants to such places. Nationwide.

Can areas not yet affected be closed off with sandbags or whatever will work so oil doesnít contaminate these areas. This would probably be best since blocking off a small area can potentially save many inlets, etc. This would save a lot of time, giving more bang for your buck. This man is the perpetrator of this terrible accident, man must also be the protector.

What lessons were learned from the Exxon Valdez and other oil spills that can be used here? This would save wasted effort.

Just as you prepare for a hurricane, you prepare with this case. You know hurricanes will be coming. Itís much worse this time because they will be ďoilcanes.Ē Far more deadly due to toxicity.

Is the oil going to hit the east coast in the near future? If so, they have more time to get things done.

Get advice from local fishermen, Sea World, marine biologist, or anyone else who deals with the ocean. Theyíre the experts. They have the knowledge. Teamwork


Remember, once these innocent creatures are gone, theyíre gone. It will be manís fault, as this is a manmade disaster. To do nothing is probably going to give a lot of people guilt. At least try. Think in the box and out of the box. Lots of ďwackyĒ ideas work.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!
