Oil on Louisiana beaches..


Oil cleanup workers hired by BP clean oily deposits from the shore in Orange Beach, Ala., Saturday, June 12,  2010.  Almost two months after an oil ri

No one ever thought US would have this predicament one day.. President Obama has already called this incident of oil spill to be as severe as 9/11. We al hope that BP is able to control this spill as early as possible for the good of this planet.

While US is too smart to take care of themselves, planning for law suits worth billions of dollars against the British Company British Petroleum, US govt has no words to say when their own corporations go on fouling and polluting other countries of the world. The case of Union Carbide (now Dow Chemicals) polluting the city of Bhopal in the night of 3 December 1984 with the lethal Methyl-iso-Cyanate gas is the instance. 

There is no legislation in US which can prevent and control such errant corporations from committing crimes against humanity in less developed and developing countries where legal systems were and are not as mature as in the West ..

Let Americans who are proud to be concerned about greening of earth and environmental sustainability etc think loudly on these  crude and deviant practices by their own brethren ..

Somebody may be thinking why we should be concerned of such matters. Concern for the sustainability of humanity is first and foremost in the minds of all right thinking citizens of the world, I consider myself to be one of them. May be the present day humanity may mock at us, but posterity will be happy that we too did our bit for preserving this planet earth for future generations !
