Life goes on: How gulf animals are faring after the BP oil spill

Four years after the Deepwater Horizon disaster dumped millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico and days after BP announced the end to “active cleanup” on Louisiana’s coast, a National Wildlife Federation report says many gulf creatures are still feeling effects of the oil and the dispersants used to break it up. Read related article.

……and they want to start doing seismic air gun testing to find oil off the Atlantic coast and drill some more.  The testing alone will cause death and injury to a large portion of the ecosystem off the east coast, the drilling that follows will only result in more disasters like the BP spill in the gulf.  Oceana is running a petition against the air gun testing that I’ve been promoting through other social media networks and I’m going to share it here as well. http://act.oceana.org/letter/l-seismic-signon?source=website&utm_source=website&utm_medium=action&utm_campaign=seismic

Jon Stewart flawlessly calls out the media’s sexist Clinton pregnancy coverage

Someone wondering if it’s sexist to talk about whether becoming a grandmother will affect Hillary Clinton’s presidential run is like someone pondering whether the sun rises in the morning? Or whether Beyonce woke up like this? It’s a forgone conclusion. Obviously, of course, definitely yes — I mean are you kidding me?
