Lori Mould's everyday life!

Life comes full circle. March 16, 2012

I left the Gulf Coast area to visit my family in Colorado. It has been way too long since the last time that I was here. I feel that my life has come full circle when I have the chance to hold my beautiful granddaughters in my arms! Being with them and my family make me feel complete and they inspire me to make sure that the world is a better place for all of us! I know that I want my granddaughters to have the basic human rights of clean air and water!

I know that the work that I have been doing to in the Gulf Coast is so very important and I am truly saddened by the fact that  the folks that were killed on the Deepwater Horizon and/or the folks that have gotten sick will or may not have this same opportunity with their own children, parents, wives, husbands, and grandchildren!!!

Please think about taking a stand for what should be simple, basic human rights…CLEAN AIR AND WATER!!

Reality…there is no doubt that BP has lied and covered up more than we may ever know!! March 10, 2012

We, as citizens, of America NEED to make sure that we get the full truth about what has happened in not only the Gulf of Mexico BUT with any operation that BP has had their grimy fingers in!! BP has been allowed to spill, kill, explode, damage, poison, and destroy their way throughout our country and quite possibly in more areas than we will ever know!!!

The scary thing to me is that our government (all agencies that have been involved) appear to kowtow to this huge corporation. A corporation that is responsible for this magnitude of environmental disaster should never have been able to oversee the cleanup and recovery efforts because that was a heinous conflict-of-interest!!

I have had several opportunities to be out on the water and see for myself, firsthand, some of the residual effects from the BP oil spill. Yesterday we went down to Orange Beach, AL and toured the back bay with Capt Lori from the Dolphin Queen Cruises. There once was a time when the dolphins would frolic and play but it seems that the matter of their survival has outweighed their playful nature. The dolphins that we did see appeared to be on a mission and they moved with speed and precision to that destination. Capt Lori explained to us that some of the dolphins have lost weight, deformities, and loss of new calves during birthing season.

To me, it does not take a scientist to figure out that what we saw in the water yesterday is causing severe problems for marine life, wildlife, and human life!! Our voices need to be unified, strong, and persistent when addressing these major issues!!!
