Eat your heart out ATS.

This one almost made me sick.



Bigger: files.abovetopsecret.com...

For Christ's sake, you people ... it's just a bloody oil spill

May I recommend moving closer to this beach?

Out of interest can you tell us where this was taken?

A sort of progression marker if you will.

Got to admit looks really cool. Like a wave on an alien planet.

I think that I read that pic was taken 90 miles from the spill in Alabama. I could be mistaken though.

That is so f'ing disturbing.

Like one of the plagues on Egypt where the waters of the Nile ran red with blood. Except it's the Earth bleeding out.

I'm living on a dying planet..

Admittedly this is not a good situation by any stretch of the imagination. However I remember seeing pictures from the 1991 spill in the persian gulf (ironic) not just seeing waving with blobs in it, but seeing waves of pure oil washing up. Bird literally soaked and floundering in inches deep oil slurry.

Although this situation will maybe get a lot worse, which probably it will. it is, as yet, not on the scale of that situation, nor anything like the disaster that is ongoing in Nigeria, or in the Amazon. here's to hoping that it will stay that way.

Honestly. I'm not seeing much of a difference between that and other bodies of water in the USA that don't contain massive oil spills. Like Chesapeake Bay for instance.

As someone who surfs, this picture makes me gag.

Imagine how gross it would feel to catch that wave.

How can anyone just laugh this off as just another oil spill is beyond me.

I fear for what may come next as a result ofv this negligence and greed
for fossil fuels.



in peace

Thanks for posting that picture. Horrific to say the least. I hope this is posted somewhere on the MSM, so the rest of the world can wake up like us here on ATS.

Bingo we have a winner,, and just like in the plagues of Egypt what happens after all the bloated carcases and such,, become festering breading grounds for pestilence, the stench of rotting corpses' travelling the Gulf breezes, and the hot months are just starting,, i don't know, what to say to be honest.

I can show you what is coming next.

1991

Persian Gulf. Estimates 1,500,000 tonnes spilt (current DWH is around 200,000 - 700,000)

And yet people with their head in the sand still continue to say "it's not a big deal".

It is a HUGE deal and the worst effects may come months and years down the line.

If you were to pretend the wave was larger than the probable 1ft height it actually is, my first thoughts were right or left. It looks like the left is banking up well, and even the middle section could be backdoored for a nice barrel whether left or right...

But yeah, other than that, the oil is sickening.

Sure, here is the original source:

www.guardian.co.uk...



Delicate patterns in the sea breaking on Orange Beach, Alabama, more than 90 miles from the BP oil spill, cannot distract from the mess four to six inches deep on parts of the shore

Imagine catching the wave and stumbling in the water... that would be a lot worse then riding it.

It's baffling to me as well, I don't live near the situation, but you can't be tellin' people to relax, it is devastating.

I think Surfers are the only ones to tell us what this one is.
Do we pass this one up or start the ride to shore?

I don't think thats a pretty large wave... so maybe its a pass. But the toxicity thats visible through the water is just grotesque.
