Gulf Oil Slick
To me, it may be that the most beautiful place in the world is - or was - the Gulf of Mexico. Perhaps it is in part due to our greed that we bleed our mother dry. And it does look very much like blood. And just like the remnants of the Tairona culture warned us, there are points at which there is no turning back. Other Native American peoples have said the same things. But even western science acknowledged long ago that we are and have long been "Beyond the Limits." And the further we take it the harder we will fall, until there comes a time when there is no getting up again, at least not for humanity, not for us.
We are - all of us - responsible.
