Undoubtedly. According to the Toronto Star, this is going to be a catastrophe on the scale of Katrina. The oil is devastating the Louisiana marshlands, an already fragile ecosystem. Without that marshland, the Louisiana coastline is kaput. This also could have been avoided had there been money invested in a valve control, which was deemed too expensive. Like usual, it was a matter profit before protection.
But yes Jane, if the public is going start caring about this serious matter, now's the time. This is a devastating disaster that is happening right now. People seemed to care plenty about the volcanic eruption because it inconvenienced them.
