    Mr. Pereira,
    You have successfully accomplished in a couple of short presentations what the supposed news powerhouses have as yet been able to do: show us the unadulterated reality of the tragic events occurring in the Gulf Of Mexico. Your reports can be best described in one word: Pulitzer.
    You have shown the American public more in these brief reports than all of the other news agencies combined. Do not be surprised if your efforts are recognized in a very big way. You more than deserve these accolades and acknowledgment.

    Brilliant work Sir. Please continue in this direction. Perhaps an entire segment devoted to this terribly unfortunate event?
    Keep it up; we need you.

    Sincere regards,
    Bruce W. Hansen
    Atlanta, Georgia

    Wow are you misinformed. You're putting the blame on the government for this? really? It was the president that lifted the ban on offshore drilling, but this has nothing to do with him. What came with these companies to drill off shore was a set of guidelines about technology and safety precautions that these oil companies were supposed to abide by and because they figured the old and cheaper tech was good enough, they figured something like this would never happen. Guess what? It did and they are doing very little to fix the situation, as you can see.

    This is why they want regulations on how businesses are ran and people to make sure these things are ran properly, to prevent crap like this. But its cool though because its a big company and big corporations know how to control situations like this and themselves right? pah!

    Kevin Pereira thank you so much doing this piece. The spill needs as much if not more coverage than the leak. You do a great service that even some of the biggest news outlets have been neglecting. You are a hero for it and you did it very well. Thank you again.

    BP is not the bad guy here or at least not the only. Our government, environmentalists, and residents of Florida have forced the drilling of oil to deep sea rigs. If they had allowed shoreline drilling then this leak would have been capped day one, but since they were forced to drill in deep seas we have no way to close it off. Whoops. Hey America the future is not here yet. One day we will be free from oil, but that day is not here (not even close). So lets do the right thing and allow for shoreline drilling, hey even drilling here on US soil. Obviously the best choice for our environment until 100 years from now, when we have viable alternatives. And if you are really that upset about the damage that the gulf has had, throw a few rotten eggs at the hippies the next time you see one.

    Great job Kevin I loved the fact you did not let up on the BP guy about the ingredients in the chemicals they are using. Very informing segment thank you

    @ihatestupid

    it has nothing to do with that. people are trying to use the president as a person to blame in this situation but the people we should be angry at is BP and their incompetent CEO wo clearly has stated that this is small compared to how bad things could be. Really? You destroyed and entire Ocean/ ecosystem for a generation and this is considered small? Idiot.

    Bobby Jindal made the situation into a money issue which, i get that this is what its all about, but he should show more sympathy beyond "bp give us the money and we will fix this!"! It goes beyond it.

    I guess i feel bad for the people that live in the gulf the most right now. especially the people in Louisiana who just cant seem to catch a break when it comes to disasters. New orleans still hasn't recovered from katrina but yet they manage to not let that keep them down.

    Hey Kevin your trip to Louisianna was a great eye opener. Sure a lot of us that tune in are gamers and tech geeks. But we do give a damn about our world. Keep up the fight. Gamers may be seen as slackers and lazy people, but we do care about the world outside our Fortress of Solitude. We can appreciate the beauty of our world beyond our consoles.

    I'm really glad G4 took the time to do this and shed a little light on what PB is doing to our community. I live in Louisiana and will spend the remainder of my senior summer helping clean up the coast with an organization I'm in. PB doesn't realize the long term impact this spill has on the seafood industry in Louisiana as well as the other states affected. The spill is destroying people's jobs and how they make a living.

    Good stuff Kevin.

    I have to say I'm disappointed you had to stick Robert Jindal in there when you said "...politicians telling people what they want to hear..." Wondering why you didn't put Obama up there. Oh well, I'm sure it went against your liberal sensibilities, right?

    Another way of support is if you buy a bottle of Dawn, they donate a dollar to save the wildlife devastated by the oil spill, and others. But log on to dawnsaveswildlife.com to by a bottle or donate more. BP should be doing more other than there feeble attempts and should take advantage of the waves of help ordinary people are offering. But it doesn't seem to take advantage of that fact, or it seems BP isn't really caring about what they are destroying, who would of guessed?

    @thatsmyname2 If you want to help the Gulf region, don't cancel your trip. There are beaches still open and businesses that need your money. BP is going to do as little as possible. If they can let the region die and still make money, they will.
