Bleeding Gulf Appears Unquenchable in Leaked Video

May 12th, 2010 by  

An amateur video made by a private citizen who had himself flown over the scene, shows clear evidence that the gushing volcano of oil from the sea floor is much, much worse than BP admits. He describes, and you can see, that the booms from the many tiny boats in this vast wrecked sea are “like teacups” in the ocean.

Although his concern is with what is coming to shore and where that will be, this much destruction has to be a terrible tragedy for sea life in the ocean itself as well.

  • I thought that people watching the video above might be interested in signing Avaas.org’s petition (link posted below). Avaas is an amazing organization that, though the power of the internet and social media, has been able to make some real change.

    I really wish stuff like this was more important to society, then maybe something would get done. What can someone like me do when i’m all the way on the other side of the country watching helplessly while the ecosystem gets permanently screwed up?

    • What indeed… One option. We can put in solar (plus extra to run an EV) and wait till EVs to come out – beginning end of year/next year – and then dump our gas guzzlers for good.
