Words are useless to describe my anger.
President Obama: About BP's considerable assets? SEIZE, BABY SEIZE!

Photos that follow are AP.

CNN is reporting right now that for the birds that can be saved and cleaned, they'll be transplanted to Tampa. If they are not captured and cleaned quickly, they die quickly because they can't fly, hunt for food, or breath.

Oh, and Happy Birthday to Anderson Cooper. Your reporting on this disaster has been a gift to us all, painful as it is.

Please rec this comment byDitch Mitch KY:

Call Congress on Friday (3+ / 0-)
Use the free number to the Congressional switchboard, and ask for the Senate Energy Committee, the House Energy Committee, and any Senator or Representative.

Demand action.  Demand that each member of the Committees watch Rachel Maddow's show 6/3.  Keep calling and keep thinking of ways to make this story real to all US citizens.


Find your Senator's contact information here and contact your congressperson here.

Consolidated Fish and Wildlife Collection Report
DATE: June 3, 2010

These are the consolidated numbers of collected fish and wildlife that have been reported to the Unified Area Command from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), incident area commands, rehabilitation centers and other authorized sources operating within the Deepwater Horizon/BP incident
impact area.

Obviously, the source isn't exactly unbiased, but nonetheless it's the only official numbers we have to go by:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
