Amateur Video Of Gulf Oil Slick - Worse Than BP Admits
Video is from Alabama resident John Wathen as a volunteer pilot flew him over the area where the oil rig sank. Officials have stopped guessing at the amount of oil leaking although some speculate it may be closer to 1 million gallons per day.
Don't let BP spin this into something trivial.
"It's not a leak, it's a volcano spewing oil"
The Common Loon cafe is still serving oysters caught each morning locally, but they aren't serving them to the hundreds of BP contract laborers who are on the island for oil spill preparation.
That's one of the complaints that local business people have with BP. With beach rentals down tremendously, BP isn't housing its crews here either.
"I don’t know what kind of backward thinking that is," said resident Patrick Hemphill. "Seems like it would be an easy solution."
