Learning how entire cultures of people may very well be wiped out by this BP/Transocean/Halliburton Gulf Gusher is heartbreaking. This catastrophy is hand made which means it was entirely preventable. To compare it to Katrina is a mistake, b/c on scale, this man made disaster is so much bigger and more threatening to generations and generations of the people.
