    comprehension. I have trouble trying to project out past three or four months because the reality of it is so huge that I start crying. And I'm tired of crying and when I think I've gotten past it, bp has a presser and apparently I lose it all over again. But seriously, it is catastrophic and it always has been.

      the depression is becoming deep for me. I take a shower now and think of how I am contributing to the pollution of the water.

      I drive my car and feel guilty.

      I open a plastic bottle of juice and I can't drink it.

      I try to live a relatively pollution free life, in all the ways I can. I am striving for a full day of no plastic, but I am surrounded.

      I feel horribly caught up in a web where there seems to be no escape.

      Not to throw shoes is the crime. Not to be outraged is the crime.

        just might push others to make a difference. I keep hoping that these live feeds and this image of black death spewing into the sea will make a real impression on this "reality tv" culture of ours.

        All holiday weekend and possibly until labor day 24/7 robot images of oil gushing into the gulf.....

        It's what I'm holding onto. The people that are watching this unfold will decide the future of climate change.

          on this oil in the past two days. I am engulfed, no pun intended.

          But I knew I would be drawn into despair tonight, just like I've been for so many other nights over this.

          My son is playing Endless Ocean on the Wii, and I thought I would just go with that for a while.

          Otherwise, I want everyone pissed. I don't need the presser to make me pissed. I just couldn't stomach it right now.

          No Memorial Day news dumps, for sure.

          Not to throw shoes is the crime. Not to be outraged is the crime.

    •  Oh I so understand (0+ / 0-)

      Late at night every night I break down crying for all the poor helpless innocent creatures being slaughtered.  And the fact that if we'd taken the actions we knew we needed to take thirty years ago, and every year since then, the odds of something like this ever happening would have been radically reduced.  Thee ecocide is the fruit of our arrogance, our indolence, our sloppy self-indulgence and willful ignorance.

      We who have been nothing shall be all. This is the final struggle. ~E. Pottier
