A containment device waits to be lowered into the water at the site of the Deepwater Horizon explos

A containment device waits to be lowered into the water at the site of the Deepwater Horizon explosion in hopes that the device will be able to curtail the flow of oil that is harming the area's rich ecosystem and threatening the livlihoods of many along the coast who earn their livings from the sea. Oil sheen can be seen on the surface of the water nearby. (Photo by Rick Loomis/Los Angeles Times via Getty Images)
