Visualizing the BP Oil Disaster
I lived in this area for 30 years and loved it. I'm now in New Jersey and looking at returning the place that has my heart, the Bay Area of San Francisco.
Why did I put the map of "my" soul home? Because I think of what would happen if such a disaster like the Gulf Oil Kill struck. If you click on the link below, you can see exactly how large of an area would be affected if this kind of preventable tragedy struck my "soul" home.
You can plug your area and the map will readjust to show you exactly how it would look in a place that you love.
My heart breaks for the entire eco system in the Gulf that is being impacted, from people to animals to plankton. I feel so helpless and just cannot imagine what it is like for everyone and everything that is being so horrifically affected.
