Oil spill will cost

Dear editor,

Dear editor,

Re: Oil spill clean-up, Jan. 20.

No amount of money will be sufficient to clean up if an oil spill occurs.

The damage to the planet cannot be counted in dollars regardless of who pays. We need to become a zero risk tolerance people to protect our water and shores. All living things are part of the food chain and life cycles.

The dangers far outweigh the benefits in the larger scheme of things. We can’t eat crude oil and our sea life can’t swim in it.
