    Nice going, Kevin.

    Can't believe it's going to take decades for this to *maybe* get better. Man...such tragedy...

    wah! wah! im sad about the greased up birds! wah! why dont you wussies shut the hell up with all that bull spit? what next? a spot on boycotting greased pig contests? isnt this the world that we want in our video games? chaos? anarchy? if you guys will just donate all the oiley birds to the nations soup kitchens maybe when all the homeless eat them they will mutate into greased up zombies! the bums certainley wont have to worry about choking down any dry birds judging by all the lube bp so kindly slathered the birds with. SUCKS TO BE A CAJUN DONT IT?!?

    The goverments of all countries should close all the bpstores. Stopp selling pbgasoline. But they won't, cause the goverments profit from it too.

    I agree with everyone here, that Kevin presented it in such a way that it just felt real, and thoughtful, all the other stuff doesn't compare to what Kevin and G4 did in a week, it's pretty funny actually.

    I can see that everyone here sees how terrible this disaster is so lets do something about it. I want to organize and effort and march on DC collect fund what ever. Something needs to be done and done soon. So drop me a line at manupinchrist@gmail.com if you seriously want to get this started. I'm gonna need a team and someone to build a website for donations and such so let me know so we can get the ball rolling on this.

    (A little side note to skyin69)While most of what you say is true and I whole heartedly agree with 90% of what you say, our "modern society" doesnt just rely on oil for gas it byproducts go in to created several other things we use so yes we need to get off foregin oil, and yes the oil companies have way to much power,and yes this is everyones fault (but mostly BP's) but until we come up with a better solution sadly we dont have much choice.

    People, remember just one thing, big changes sometimes starts with little things. Doing our part is just a piece of a whole. If we keep going like this, our grandchildren are not going to have a planet to live in.

    As long as we keep relying in petroleum for our daily shores this is going to keep happening. Big oil companies like BP control everything they want to, because “WE” have gave them the power to solve everything with money.
    THEY don’t really want to shout the pipe; they are just trying to find another way to catch the most of the oil for them, and in the meantime millions of gallons of oil are bubbling out. But it doesn’t matters, lets just pretend that we are doing something putting a bunch of dippers and tons of dispersants as we try to build another rig. That’s their only interest, MONEY. They don’t care about the lifes that they are destroying, wildlife and families alike, that’s just collateral damage for them, a liability that can be paid. And the worst is still to come, because this is far from over.

    Sadly, this is all our fault, for our so called “modern society”. How many decades ago people are trying to develop new technologies based on solar energy, natural gas, and different others? How many decades ago we find out the damage that CO2 emanations cause to the ozone layer? How many decades ago we knew what solutions we had in hand. BUT, we, as a modern society allow pollution just as a side effect. Our own government, electric power companies, and many others, always put the right things to do aside, to keep control and their monopoly in our lives or just because to “safe a few bucks” as for almost all big companies do, no matter what, they just see cost and expenses not consequences . It is a shame that these things had to happen for us to open our eyes. This is happening all the time in the whole world, just in different scales.

    I have been watching G4tv for years now on my iPod, never thought of joining the website before, enjoyed Kevin's jokes and skits before, but he has truly outdone himself (in a good way) here. He shed light on a topic that I haven't been keeping up-to-date on and am now changing my vacation destination to Florida to help with the clean up process. Bravo Kevin Pereria, bravo and thank you.
