An oil spill resulting from a rig explosion off the coast of the Gulf of Mexico is dumping rainbow-black goo into the water.
Scientists are unsure of the full extent of the damage from the spill, and citizens in affected areas are scrambling to help find solutions to protect their shore.
Do you have a strong opinion on how the oil spill is being handled? Sound off here.
Do you have a solution yourself? We're collecting some of those ideas here as well. Share a video explaining your thoughts -- bonus points for awesome visuals -- and you could be featured on CNN.
Meanwhile, to see or share personal stories of how the Gulf spill is affecting your community, please do so here.
UPDATE: We talked to Bill Nye (the science guy) and he took a look at some of your ideas and shared his thoughts. Check it out.
