Hey Ken? The oil’s still there…
Ken Feinberg believes the Gulf of Mexico will be recovered by 2012.
British Petroleum disputes this time-table as being too lengthy.
A new study released by the University of Georgia however, reveals Feinberg and BP may both be inhaling far too many fumes from their vanishing oil.
At a science conference in Washington Saturday, marine scientist Samantha Joye of the University of Georgia showed the results of what she found with submarine dives that travelled across 2600 square miles of the Gulf’s seafloor where her team took 250 core samples, “I’ve been to the bottom. I’ve seen what it looks like with my own eyes. It’s not going to be fine by 2012,” Joye told the Associated Press. “You see what the bottom looks like, you have a different opinion.”
She showed pictures of bottom dwelling creatures that are choked with oil. They included dead crabs, and brittle stars that normally would be bright orange and wrapped tightly around coral. Instead they were pale, loose and dead. She also saw tube worms so full of oil they suffocated.
“This is Macondo oil on the bottom,” Joye said as she showed slides. “This is dead organisms because of oil being deposited on their heads.”
Damn Ken, even Jane Lubchenco from the NOAA says your 2012 time-frame isn’t right, and she has a hard time finding oil under the hood of her car.
This is far, far from over, no matter what anyone who is, or receives money from British Petroleum might want the country and the courts to believe.
