A nice group of people joined hands in Corpus Christi, TX to protest drilling in the gulf. I don't really object to drilling because we do need to stop our dependence on foreign oil, but we do need to find a cleaner way to do it.

    What a great capture, Regenia! It is always good to see people gathered for a worthy cause, whether we totally disagree with them or not. We can't give up on oil, because it is in so many things that we use in our homes, the roads we drive on, and many other places. I would rather see drilling on land, but in deference to the workers on the oil rigs, we need to keep them going, and clean up what we have. Still I understand the concern that all of us share for our beautiful Gulf. Great entry, Regenia! voted.

    Great shot. Galveston is same way that I know. Galveston did had that problem before when i was live down there before. They had learn their lesson before and they didn't take long like Louisiana did. I am just glad that my hometown take care of it before it got worse. Plus Galveston always have back up plan in case it happen. I know that we have Exxon down there. I do know that we have Bp down there. I not support bp.

    Excellent shot and cropping! As for oil drilling, we may not have any choice. There is only a limited supply of oil which will eventually run out. Our tax dollars need to be spent on developing clean energy so that the oil we do have will go further. Drilling and destroying the planet is NOT the answer!!!

  • Jerry Sander

    Jerry Sander said (25 Jul 2010):

    It's a shame that this tragety has made our country even more divided than it was before the explosion. As a commercial fisherman from Louisiana I am obviously not a fan of BP! And I would love to see us use more alternative energy sources such as solar power and be less dependent on oil altogether. But lets not be ridiculous, we cannot just stop drilling oil and everything will be OK. We still need oil and if we don't get our own we will have to get it from other countries, and although this is the largest oil spill in our country, it is still safer to drill than to have oil transported in. And if this morritorium is not lifted very soon than these oil companies will move their operations to other countries and this country will feel the economic effects from the thousands of jobs lost as a result.
