Oil, oil everywhere, and not a drop to burn

Why didn't BP close the deep water oil well after the explosion? Why doesn't BP abandon the well. $$$$$$$$$$$. So far BP seems satisfied with recovering 10% of the gushing oil leak.

The tears we shed as we watch and read, are they sadness over the loss or remorse for our greed? Why is our focus on clean up rather than permanent shut down? Where will we put the millions of gallons of oil contaminating the Gulf of Mexico? Are we so addicted to oil that we will destroy to Earth to get it?

There is nothing natural about this disaster. It is all manmade.

LESSON: Turn to CREATOR LORD now. Only He can save us from ourselves.

Couldn't have said it better. I find the disconnect to be just incredible. A friend of mine was recently down in the Gulf region. He said people are literally panicked about their future, but at the same time, he witnessed a huge line forming at a gas station because it was selling gas for a few cents cheaper than the station across the street. What's it gonna take?

That is THE question. If hurricane, earthquake, volcano, hail, tsunami, mud slides and floods are not enough to tell us we are living out of harmony with the Earth; if breakdown in the ozone, increasing extinction rates of species, melting glaciers, escaping methane, changes in the Great Ocean Conveyor belt can't convince us to pay attention; then perhaps floating plastic islands of human trash, oceans red with solvents and dead zones, global pandemic, devastating poverty, starvation, genetic mutation, armed orphans fighting as a way of life will touch our soul. No? How can The Creator speak to us if we refuse to listen? Thankfully He is big enough and small enough to deal with us one at a time if that's what it takes.
