recommends the award
winning documentary film,
The Great Invisible, produced
& directed by Margaret Brown
& presented by Independent Lens
about the Deepwater Horizon
oil platform disaster of 2010
that killed 11 people in the Gulf
of Mexico, ruining a regional
economy while devastating a
thousand miles of wetlands and
coastline in the largest oil spill
ever. It also shows the reckless
lack of corporate responsibilty
or preparedness when confronted
with their own catastrophic disasters.
PBS and Independent Lens aired
this film April 20, 2015.
On a day when we are reminded
about the importance of taking
care & responsibility of this planet,
I spent some time learning about
the magnitude of danger inherent
in Mankind's quest for fossil fuel.
A sobering look at Earth Day;
I live near the beaches that met
similar fates in 1969 in Santa Barbara.
This video is available here (I think)
through May 2015. It's a must see.
