Oil Contaminate

In the wake of the large oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, I couldn't help but write a little something about the potential hazards of oil.

According to the Department of Environmental Quality, just one gallon of used oil, the amount from a single small vehicle engine, has the potential to contaminate up to one million gallons of fresh water-a year's supply of water for 50 people.  That's huge! 

Imagine what the oil spill in the Gulf has the potential to disrupt and destroy...
I am so terribly terribly saddened by this tragic event in the Gulf.  Please click here to see how you can help with the clean up.
