I’m sure I’m not alone when it comes to holding my breath for the current cap on the oil well in the Gulf. It has been a very painful and horrific three months of watching failure after failure by BP to plug this well. I have shed tears for the lives lost in this tragedy both human and animal. My heart goes out to all the people who are losing their heritage and tradition in the oily mess. I pray that this environmental tragedy will lead our country to a cleaner energy future where wind, solar, tide and geothermal is the norm, and all those oil workers can work in a field where they are not exposed to toxic oil on a daily basis.
But, for the short-term, I hold my breath that this temporary fix will work until there is a permanent solution.
