dt and zen - This horrifying situation affects not just everything that depends upon the water, but ultimately everything that depends upon the air. Oceanic algae produces about half of the planet's oxygen; terrestrial plant life (which is rapidly diminishing - think Amazon) the other half. What is one of the biggest depleters of planetary oxygen? The internal (aka infernal) combustion engine. Survival of life on this planet (including our own) depends upon healthy oceans.

DT - you're so right. Thanks for commenting.

The disaster is a very sad scenario. Every living thing that depends on the water will be affected, even the birds.

Never fear; that eminent scientist, Dr. Limbaugh, has told us that the environment will "clean itself" of the oil, since oil is completely natural (similar to the way the "free market" would have taken care of the financial meltdown, minus the stim). Well, Rush, water is completely natural too. Try holding your head under it for 10 minutes.

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
