Like you, I’ve been concerned about the spewing of millions of gallons of oil 5,000 feet beneath the water’s surface into the Gulf of Mexico. This oil spill, now the largest in US history, will shortly become a death sentence to the flora, fauna, and livelihoods of so many in this region. Feeling utterly helpless, I’ve been crying out to God that He would provide wisdom to the scientists, engineers, environmental experts, and government officials in a unified tandem to find a workable solution.
My heart sinks every time I read an announcement from BP (British Petroleum) announcing that their most recent plan to halt the spewing has failed. Since the disastrous oil rig explosion on April 20 that killed 11 rig workers, our country (and others) is being poisoned by this liquid gold. Between the proposed custom-made “cap” and “top hat” procedures, all have failed. Predictions reveal that the oil spill is five times greater than first estimated.
