Call to the volunteers to reply to the Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico – Deepwater Horizon Response


The consequences of the explosion, arising April 20, 2010 on the platform of drilling Deepwater Horizon in the Golf of Mexico, will have done 11 death, injured and induced the collapse of the platform (April 22 2010), followed by a rupture of the well of drilling to three levels and of an uncontrollable oil spill for the time being, who mobilize today about 7,000 persons, of which 2,500 volunteers…



clip_image005The box foreseen to master temporarily the considerable escape of hydrocarbon, who since Friday mobilizes all the attention and does to weigh an unthinkable anxiety on all the participants on the places of the disaster, presented, in the depths (to 1,500 meters), in his internal surface some formations of icelike hydrates.

Now, a such accumulation of crystals in the funnel of the box seem to suffice to provoke an explosion and to worsen the position, what’s more to jeopardize the life of hero that attempt the impossible one in the abyssal plains… This first attempt of salvage is therefore temporarily suspended… to follow……

This ecological catastrophe is the fruit of the human negligence to the profit of the gain, but she is not unfortunately an isolated case… far of there… Others exploiters of oil resources (as Total with the oil tanker, or rather the wreck Erika, who remained functional until its shipwreck and its heavy consequences on the Breton coasts) or of gas resources (the company Lapindo Brantas with the mud volcano on the island of Java) have, well before BP, neglected the security always for a history of maximum profits… with a devastating impact again very active on the environment with regards to the mud volcano.

Even if BP and Transocean made an unforgivable and inadmissible mistake in the exploitation of Deepwater Horizon (let us hope that the investigation in course results alongside set it up of a law applicable STRICTER to the international scale), the hour is now to the protection of the water environment, the earthly environment of the coastal threatened and their associated ecosystem, on considerable surfaces.

clip_image007Considerable means are deployed by the American government, to the expense of BP, (and Transocean), with the support of the EPA, NOAA and the admirable intervention of the Coast-Guards, US Air Force, local fishermen and alongside all the others volunteer… These means of safe’s America is to the picture of United-States (immense with an incomparable logistical), who inspire the confidence…

This is the reason why, I invite you all to rejoin Deepwater Horizon Response on Facebook, Flickr, Twitter and You Tube… for following the evolution of the position in new, photos and videos …

I would have wished that the French government implies himself actively on the shipwreck of the Erika, but it was not thus… and for the Grenelle of the environment 2, this is a shame, this is no longer ecology… Can we hope a day, see in France, a ministry of environment so active as the EPA?…


I would want to finish this post on my conception of volunteering, that I consider as the expression of the esteem that we carry to all that surrounds ourselves. Beyond the humanitarian and heroic aspect, the volunteering is the most powerful symbol of LOVE:

clip_image001 the love for our next one;

clip_image001[1] the love that we devote to our Earth;

clip_image001[2] the love that we carry to LIFE…

Courage & Good Luck to all the Coast Guard, Voluntary, Workers and Scientifics that attempt the impossible one!!!… and for certain of them, to the peril of their life … We are of all our heart with you the Great GUYS !!!…

And considering the urgency situation, we will not reproach to these heroes… to forget US Mother’s Day, because they celebrates it already while protecting our Mother Earth…
