At 23 miles out, the heaviest sheen of oil was found. - a "rainbow of death." The video shows dolphins and sharks - swimming in oil.
In the second video below, Wathen is interview on CNN. The first 1:45 is a replay of the aerial video, then the interview begins. He says this is much, much bigger than we are being told. He is a representative of Save our Gulf, which has 7 waterkeeper programs. Wathen speaks of how difficult it was to realize "this is hopeless, hopeless to think that we can keep this coming on shore and affecting our communities."
This video is a production of BP Oil Slick. Click the link and listen to the audio of Billy Nunguesser, the president of Plaquemines Parish, New Orleans. The early conversation is about the press black-out [see that story linked under the videos].
Nunguesser is very vocal. He talked about Thad Allen, the U.S. Coast Guard and the government's reluctance to let the A-Whale begin gathering the oil. See the A-Whale video, and how it works here, as well as Nunguesser saying if the clean-up fails, it will be Obama's fault.
While at BP Oil Slick, take a look at this article which says BP claims they are not covering over oiled sand on the beaches with more sand, yet on July 2, 2010 the writer watched them do so for over 24 hours. Apparently the Coast Guard stood by and watched it too. Be sure to watch the video. This gets sadder and more frightening by the day. While this affects all of us, and breaks our hearts, the people in the affected area are in special need our prayers.
Incredible!...and all this could have been stopped were it not for Obama. The guy needs to be swimming with those dolphins!
