Do you think the Gulf of Mexico would appreciate a contingency plan? One of the greatest environmental disasters of all time struck the Gulf Coast on April 20. An oil rig, located off of the coast of Louisiana, exploded causing three leaks in pipes that are now emitting an estimated 200,000 gallons of crude oil into the ocean every day.
BP is responsible for the oil, but denies responsibility for the actual leak. They place the blame on Transocean Ltd., the operator of the demolished rig, for the catastrophe. Regardless of which company will take the fall for this devastation, the obvious pitfall is that neither company had a contingency plan for an incident of this magnitude. Many are wondering, how can something like this happen today, and why hasn’t anyone stopped it yet?
There were warning signs that a leak could occur, but no preventative measures were established; Machines are faulty, and people make mistakes. Had the corporations involved with these machines created plans for emergency situations, this crisis might not even exist.
Are you ignoring your body; hoping a health crisis won’t hit?
Did you realize that the 50% of the people who have heart disease DIE from the first symptom (a stroke). A hospital bill for a heart attack will cost an estimated $50,000 for a basic 3-day stay (this does not include any open heart surgery which may be added on).
If you think Wellness is expensive, think again. The cost of being sick and dealing with disease is emotionally, physically as well as financially draining.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! TCOY!
