This is what 60 days of oil pouring into the Gulf of Mexico looks like.

This is what reckless disregard for safety and the precautionary principle looks like.

This is what irresponsible energy policy looks like.

This is what the end of Gulf Coast fisheries for the foreseeable future looks like.

This is what government weakened by special interests looks like.

This is what it looks like with the colors inverted, so you can really see the oil.

This is what it looks like when the planet bleeds.

Today is day 64. Good night.
