"We're helping cover up the lie"

Just a few weeks after 55-year-old charter boat captain William Allen Kruse was hired by BP to help with the oil spill cleanup that threatened his livelihood and community, he killed himself. A deckhand who worked for Kruse said working as one of BP's "vessels of opportunity" was a stressful and confusing experience. "We're helping cover up the lie," a 27-year-old colleague of Kruse told The Washington Post. "We're burying ourselves. We're helping them cover up the lie that's putting us out of work."

Why the Web of Life is Dying...

Could you survive with just half of your organs? Think about it. What if you had just half your brain, one kidney, half of your heart, one lung, half a liver and only half of your skin? It would be pretty hard to survive right? Sure, you could survive losing just one kidney or half of your liver, but at some point, losing pieces from all of your organs would be too much and you would die.
