Vadim . . . Thanks for organizing this event. If it had not been for the meetup, I probably would not have the event. I wasn't aware that BP's clean-up strategy focused on dispersal rather than skimming. Despite what the media has reported, it doesn't surprise me that the fishing industry & restaurant owners in the Gulf have not been "made whole." The greed, the abuse of power & the extent to which the oil, gas, coal & nuclear industries control & manipulate people knows no bounds. I am planning on going to see Bill McKibben, a scientist who perhaps is the most foremost expert on global warming & climate change in N. America, speak in a couple of weeks when his tour comes to Chicago. I have also joined an environmental book discussion group as part of a meetup. Ultimately we're going to have to make big changes in our lifestyles if the human species is going to survive. Sorry I didn't get a chance to stay & meet everyone afterwards but look forward to doing so in the future.
