The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has been going for quite a long time.  I remember sitting in class the day that my teacher told me about the spill, many months later the oil is still pouring into the ocean. On CNN’s website it has a tracker that shows how many barrels of oil are being poured into the ocean. The number this second is 3,489,055.. but each second it rises.

Some may keep saying.. Drill baby drill, but when you see what the oil is doing to our economy and the wildlife.. your thoughts can be changed. Finding new sources of energy for our cars and other things that need oil is the answer.

The main thing that we need and use is destroying us! The oil spill is no good.

Do something about it.
