You won't believe this: As the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig continues to spill huge amounts of oil into the Gulf everyday, Republicans are demanding less regulation for companies like BP and Transocean while also looking for a taxpayer-funded bailout of BP. Yeah, I'm serious.
After a month of oil spewing into the Gulf, the cost of cleaning up BP's mess is $542 million and counting. But a group of Republican senators led by Lisa Murkowski of Alaska want the company to only pay for about the first five days of the cleanup and put taxpayers on the hook for everything else.
That's right, Murkowski and her pals want to "Bail out BP."
I just told my Senators that this is not ok, that it's time to end offshore drilling and focus on clean energy instead. Can you do the same thing?
This website makes it really easy

It takes over a month to figure out how to dump rocks and concrete into a hole? The Coast Gaurd Commandant says that the federal government does not have the equipment or expertise? He also says that he is satisfied with BP's response, but BP has been stowing oil from the hole on tankers over the course of the past month, even while the hole was leaking, even while coastlines were terribly polluted. BP apparently thought that they had an economic advantage in neglecting the spill and recovering the oil. BP clearly cares only about the oil, not about american coastlines. I am predicting that more and more evidence will accumulate to illustrate the point. It is criminal negligence, and the Coast Gaurd Commandant is complicit in that negligence. Is he in violation of the rules that he is charged with enforcing? Time will tell. Meanwhile, the situation well illustrates the craven greed of corporations, who would see many peoples lives irreparably damaged, and justify it in the name of corporate profit. The behavior of the Commandant may illustrate another unfortunate truth as well.

Use them to spread the word, petition links, etc. I use ping, posterous, livejournal, and stumbleupon together. It works OK most times. Hellotxt.com is also sometimes useful ;-}. This is a public health storm on the horizon. Sign petitions and contact your congressmen to let them know that it is imperative to solve this problem and address the aftermath. Here is an example.
Make creative tweets and blog articles. Think of something that is important to you that will be affected by the spill. It will affect everyone in some way. Make tweets about it and write about it in your blog. Give it your best. Own your actions. You have nothing to be ashamed of. Here are some of my tweets.
I am boycotting BP. What contaminant is in your fish oil?
I am boycotting BP.
BP PR would like us to think that it is happening far away, but it is a global scale spill. It IS a global scale oil spill. There is already enough oil to cover a continent. The spill is near the equator. It is vastly huge. It will be crossing the equator soon, if it hasn't already. The sea currents will tend to push the oil south, far away from the US. Where is the economic incentive for the US to address the spill? Northern fisheries will do just fine. There needs to be an international response, to a global scale problem. Is the UN on this? Organization of American States? Address your concerns locally as well. Regards,
