American Zombie Visits the Spill…Anatomy of an Oil Spill, Part I

Raccoon Island

Now that the well is reportedly capped…reportedly…it would seem a collective sigh of relief is in order.  That is if you don’t stop to think about the damage already done.  In the past few days, I had the grand opportunity to survey some of that damage.

I have had the good fortune of being able to fly out over the BP/Macondo site, and over other Gulf areas affected by the oil spill, twice in 4 days.  I say good fortune…I nearly lost my breakfast 20 or 30 times, but it was well worth it.  I took a video camera up with uber-eco-warrior, fearless pilot, PhD of Theoretical Physics, and 2nd mate of the Sea Sheperd’s anti-whaling boat, the Bob Barker (featured on Animal Planet’s Whale Wars),  Bonny Schumaker.

Check out the photos and read on…
