How do we force a multi-national corporation to pay the ACTUAL cost of an ONGOING spill of over 200,000 gallons a day? The oil has made landfall in the critical coastal wetlands of Louisiana. This tragedy affects us all, regardless of where we live because this habitat is host to migratory species, many of which are classified as Critical or Endangered. Lives will be lost. Species may be lost forever. How does one QUANTIFY that loss in DOLLARS??? Preposterous! It can't be done!
So what IS the solution? How DO we proceed?
