by Jane Fulton from her “Crude Awakening” project

“Living on the shores of Lake Michigan, I am acutely aware of the disastrous toll the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has taken on all forms of life, especially as our beaches opened to the 2010 swimming season. This environmental, social and economic catastrophe highlights a much larger problem that has inflicted untold suffering as we exploit the earth’s resources worldwide. We are all responsible for leading lives that create demand for unsustainable energy. We are also all responsible for the solution and we must work together to protect the balance of life”

“A slick of fuel oil, part of the 58,000 gallons that spilled from a damaged cargo ship after it struck the Bay Bridge Wednesday morning, floats in the waters around Alcatraz Island, Thursday, Nov. 8, 2007 in San Francisco”

“A container ship struck one of the tower base of the San Francisco Bay Bridge, spilling about 58,000 gallons of bunker fuel oil.At work (about 1.6 mile from where the incident took place) we can smell the oil. It smelled like a tar machine was nearby. When I heard of the news, I walked over to one of the piers during my lunch hour to see if I could see the ship. Apparently, this happened ealier in the morning and it was already gone… but I noticed some oil spills in the water near the pier”
