It would be hard for anyone keeping track of the Gulf Oil Spill disaster to miss the dramatic impact this is going in America.
British Petroleum (BP) has promised to pay for everything and they should. The U.S. government has shown it’s dedicated to repairing the damage, and making sure BP is held accountable.
Nobody knows how bad the damage will be. BP isn’t even sure when they’re going to be able to completely stop the flow, and the oil is already washing up on the coast.
Animals are suffering, the environment is sufferin, fisherman, and small businesses are suffering too. Volunteers and specialists are already heading to the gulf, looking for places to lend a hand. The four states directly affected each have sites to collect volunteers to help clean up.
