Save the Gulf; shut down all oil wells

“Murphy’s Law” has smacked British Petroleum in the jaw.

I find it hard to believe that people are still supporting continued drilling in the Gulf, once this leak is stopped (if it ever does stop). As of this typing, we are at day 39.

There are more than 4,000 oil wells in the Gulf. A strong hurricane, aided by Murphy’s Law, could cause even more destruction along the Gulf.

It is time to close ALL of these wells, and concentrate on avenues of clean energy.
