What BP Does Not Want You To See

Shocking video from Philippe Cousteau Jr. and ABC News, a dolphin's eye view of the oil spill in the Gulf:

Please call your Senators today and tell them we need to pass robust, meaningful legislation that finally gets us off of fossil fuels, so we never again have to witness a disaster like this. We've been hearing about how oil is a "transitional fuel" for 30 years (and President Obama repeated that tired line again today). No, it's not "transitional," not when your entire economy is still dependent on it, not after oil shocks like the Arab Oil Embargo and on and on. This isn't transitional, this is a giveaway to multinational corporations trying to make gobs of money.
