Such a shame to sea the Gulf of Mexico which could be one of the worlds best source of seafood if it was environmentally protected having been polluted so much. Perhaps one solution would be to discourage growing cotton in the Mississippi Watershed area and encourage Organically grown hemp as an alternative.

Yes, and a friend of mine who is a Captain of a NOAA vessel says much the same thing. One has to wonder how bad it will have to get!

Why would I even consider vacationing on or near the Gulf of Mexico shoreline?
