Dying, Dead Marine Wildlife Paint Dark, Morbid
Picture of Gulf Coast Following Oil Spill
Here's what President Obama didn't see when he visited the Gulf Coast: a dead dolphin rotting in the shore weeds.
"When we found this dolphin it was filled with oil. Oil was just pouring out of it. It was the saddest darn thing to look at," said a BP contract
worker who took the Daily News on a surreptitious tour of the wildlife disaster unfolding in Louisiana.
His motive: simple outrage.

Again, I say, BULL CRAP
If there was a true environmental disaster unfolding, if marine life was imperiled in the Gulf on the scale "they" claim, you wouldn't be
to cover it up. I don't care who
is "controlling the media," you simply cannot stop people from posting photos and videos
Take a look at the photo accompanying the above story — that's the photo that's supposed to blow the lid off
the BP "coverup," right?
A one-off shot of a dolphin carcass. That's the best the photographer could do. He couldn't do a panoramic shot, showing all the miles of dead and
dying marine life BECAUSE IT DOESN'T EXIST
. So they placed all their money on a photo of one dead dolphin.
Bitch, on a perfect day
, on any coastline on the planet, you're going to find dolphin carcasses. And whale carcasses. And sea turtle
carcasses. These creatures die all the time, are washed ashore all the time
Further, the story talks about a handful of "lethargic" pelicans with stained feathers and 5 dead turtles.
Are you serious?
Is that the best
these "outraged" eco-stooges can manage??
Look, from 1992 through 1993, I lived on Florida's Gulf Coast — it's called The Sun Coast
, because that's where you go to watch the sun
slowly set on your life. It's a retirement mecca. Actually, I lived out of Sarasota on Siesta Key, one of the most beautiful islands with the most
beautiful beaches in the world. That's official. Siesta's beach sand has repeatedly won international competitions.
Between 1992 and 1993, Hurricane Andrew blew through Florida, followed by a couple of the notorious but perfectly natural
Red Tides — a
is an algae bloom, sometimes 50 miles or more in length, that poisons the sea with deadly toxins and sucks every last oxygen molecule
out of the water.
When Red Tides come in, the beaches are not "littered" with dead and dying marine life — the beaches are BURIED
in dead marine life. If it
was alive out there beyond the surf, it's dead after a Red Tide comes in. The death toll is incalculable, certainly in the millions of individual
large specimens per mile
While I was there, I watched the cleanup of Siesta Key following the Red Tide, all along the 12-mile Crescent where I walked every day. They estimate
that they took over 12 million dead animals out of the Crescent at Siesta Key alone
, using bulldozers and dump trucks to haul away the
The poisonous gasses of rotting tissue were so thick, it was actually dangerous
for humans to approach the beach for a week. Still, I was out
there strolling along the beach, enjoying the solitude and examining the extraordinary diversity of dead marine animals — some I had never seen
before, and that's saying
Here's a shot of the amazing carnage caused by natural
algae blooms. Massive, easy to photograph, impossible to "cover up"...
Point is, there are perfectly natural
processes that kill MILLIONS
of marine creatures AT A TIME
, and there is no way in hell to
stop people from photographing and posting the evidence of such processes, because they cover such vast areas.
Now, in the case of the Gulf Oil Spill, supposedly staining over a hundred miles of Louisiana's coast, are you seriously trying to tell me that the
"outraged" eco-moron in the above story can't do any better than one dead dolphin?
Yeah, there's a coverup
, alright. The eco-fear-mongers are trying to pull an environmental apocalypse
out of their asses where there
