BP Gulf Oil Spill Affected Wildlife Images
Today marks the three-month anniversary of the Gulf oil spill.  How many times in the past month have you wondered what you can do about it?

The Center for Biological Diversity has launched a No More Oil Spills Month of Action designed to give concerned citizens an opportunity to voice their outrage and demand a permanent solution to our fossil fuel addiction.  Visit their website to learn about local actions in your area, tips for writing a letter to the editor and opportunities to visit your senator or representative when he/she is in town during the August recess.

Images of the Gulf devastation are disturbing but, as the late great environmental activist Judi Bari said, “Don’t mourn, organize!”  The pundits keep saying that the Gulf spill presents the opportunity of a generation to get serious about energy security and climate change–they’re right, but only if the rest of us get busy.
