It’s been 60 plus days since the BP explosion that caused this oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico. The people of the gulf coast states have been upset, looking for someone to blame, and at the same time wanting a solution to the problem. Our president and his administration have been criticized about how this administration is handling the problem.
When Toyota had a problem, they fixed it before they were able to put out more cars. The Toyota dealerships around the country took a hit in sales and are still taking hits. We knew that Toyota employed people here in this country, but they had to take time off until their company FIXED the problem. Now Toyota is on an upward swing. They fixed the problem and the govement made them fix the problem.
Let’s look at the bigger picture here. This explosion could have happened on any company’s oil rig. However, no oil companies have any provisions on how to fix this leak. NOT ONE.How does an oil drilling company build an oil rig without knowing how to fix a problem such as a busted pipe? I’m not an engineer, but I do know where there is oil, then preparation for a fire should be taken into consideration.
If there was an oil company (no matter which one) with an employee who could fix the problem, we would have this problem fixed. This means not only BP, but all of these other oil companies drilling in the gulf is not prepared for this type of disaster. So how does it make any sense to continue to drill.
Our president did address the need for American minds, government, and business' to look into alternate means of energy use. Americans must use more natural resources and stop being so dependent on fossil fuels. We have to use more solar and wind power. We need to drive smaller cars and stop acting like we must have the biggest gas guzzler out there. We should all be driving some kind of alternative fuel cars. China has way more people than we do, but they are not as dependent on oil as we are. As a whole their country uses less fossil fuels than America.
Looking at this problem from a GREEN point of view, the oil leaking at the bottom of the ocean is bleeding our earth. I don’t know why oil is at the center of the earth, but I do know that GOD put it there for a reason. The oil in the earth is the start of everything created at the bottom of the ocean and on land. This is not only a food chain that BP is destroying, but also a life chain.
Let’s use this example, when a person goes to donate a pint of blood, the person is not going to fall out and die. The person donating the blood can get up, walk, and even come in the next day and donate more blood. However, let’s just say that same person doesn’t have a pint bag collecting blood at the end of the needle. What will happen to that person? Eventually that person will die a slow death. Our earth is bleeding a slow death. Fix the Leak!!
