#PowerShift 2011: Rebuilding the Gulf from the BP oilpocalypse

#PowerShift 2011: Rebuilding the Gulf from the BP oilpocalypse

I spent my summers growing up in the gulf coast. I go back every year now for a week vacation, and I have seen how much the area has changed as a result of the oil spill. It truly isn't over and not nearly enough has been done to completely clean up the oil. Just a few weeks ago when I was there they still had crews cleaning up the tar balls as they rolled in with the waves. Many of the local fishermen have also been suffering and have yet to see any relief from BP or in the waters every day. It is as if everyone forgot about them or thinks that the problem has just gone away. We need to keep focus on this issue, or people will completely forget about the problems.
