remembering deepwater horizon.

Anthony DeLorenzo, Area Director for Grays Harbor, Tacoma, WA and Gresham, OR communities, invites us to think back to April of last year…

“Today marks the one year anniversary of an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon, an event resulting in the death of eleven people and the beginning of the largest oil spill in U.S. history.  With as much as 60,000 barrels of oil leaking into the water each day, it has also been considered among the worst environmental disasters in human history.  Tragedies such as these serve as reminders of the delicate nature of our ecosystems and to our responsibility to act as stewards of the earth, whether that earth be terrestrial or aquatic.

In the coming weeks I invite you to look at your own lifestyle and what is required to sustain it.  Are there ways in which you can decrease your dependency on oil? Northwest Earth Institute has dedicated the entirety of their blog this month to how we can let go of our dependency on this limited resource, giving daily action steps we can take to make that change.  Click on http://nwei.wordpress.com/ to learn more.”
