Now the massive oil spill in the Gulf, which officials are saying has topped the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska.
View some of the tragic results happening to the island off LA which is home to hundreds of nesting brown pelicans and other birds. The oil has desecrated hundreds of miles of beaches in LA and AL already and is sitting at the gulf of the Mississippi River.
Throw the book at BP. Revoke any rights to oil drilling in the U.S. BOYCOTT BP!
