Great Barrier Reef

Great Barrier Reef

The Guardian, one of my favorite sources of news, just published this article about how US lawmakers are trying to fund two gas facilities next to the Great Barrier Reef.

For anyone who has ever seen Finding Nemo, this is where it takes place. If the lawmakers are approved to do this, THEY WILL KILL DORY.

Think about it for a moment: why is the government trying to go all the way to Australia to build these gas death traps? Maybe because they can’t get approved to build them here! Thank you EPA and the Endangered Species Act.

For anyone who has never seen the GBR, here are a few of my favorite images that I pulled up when I ran a Google search:

Now can you imagine putting a monstrous gas facility near there? It would not only wreck the natural beauty, but probably kill a lot of the wildlife that were there first.

Think of Dory, guys.
