For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. Habakkuk 2:14 (It's too bad our sea is full of oil right now)
This was the status I posted on Facebook today. It is sooo sad to see our ocean filling up with oil...killing all the animals, plants and contaminating our land as it comes ashore.
Birds - Whales - Otters - Fish - Shrimp - Crabs - Oysters - Plankton (food for the fish) - Dolphins
Areas from Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida will be damaged.
Here is a good article from CNN describing the environmental disaster.
Here is a current update from Yahoo which describes how our President has decided not to allow drilling....duh - it takes a tragedy to open the politician's eyes.
I know not everyone will agree with me but offshore drilling in the middle of our oceans is not exactly the smartest thing we could be doing. I don't understand why our government and these oil companies don't explore renewable energy options. These technologies have been around since at least the 1970s (probably earlier) and if we would have invested the money into them rather than destroying our environment with oil I believe we could be using renewable energy options daily instead of it being something "new."
Our Lord must be very disappointed with the way we are taking care of this precious earth. In Genesis 1 God gave man and woman dominion over the earth and all it's plants and creatures. That doesn't mean we should destroy it.
