The Oil Beneath

Back home tomorrow, to see for ourselves. In the meantime, "Gregg" posted this video on YouTube:

As director of a statewide environmental organization that works to keep our beaches clean and safe and the founder of Gulf Coast Environmental Defense, a panhandle group opposed to opening the eastern Gulf of Mexico to new drilling, I have spent the past 23 years working to avoid the nightmare that is now unfolding all around me.

Watching Morning Joe on MSNBC this morning, I listened to Governor Crist say that our beaches and shorelines are the best booms that we have to catch the sticky, toxic oil that is slowly creeping into Florida. The same statement was attributed to his Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Secretary Mike Sole in a Gannett newspaper last weekend. I admit that even after 23 years of dealing with bureaucrats who care little about our waters, I was horrified to hear our governor say these words.

That's no longer a beach, it's now a boom

I'm finally moving from being stunned into the "angry" phase, is anybody else getting there?

BP demanded that AU 60 Min remove this segment, but here it is in 3 YouTube clips. I don't know how long this has been online, but I'm just now seeing this.
