A puncture wound a mile under the surface of the Gulf continues to bleed, this blood has no coagulation process, unable to clot itself it continues to
bleed out, staining the water, the animals and the shoreline.
Mankind faces a real challenge on a scale never before imagined. The ecosystem hangs in the balance, its destiny now in our hands. Organisms that we
may never see, animals and sea life we may never touch, wetlands, shorelines and beaches we may never walk or swim, are all looking towards mankind,
depending on our species the free thinkers of the animal kingdom to fix this problem. Human innovation needs to rise up and answer its calling in this
dire moment in history.
Here is a time lapse video from satellite images of the oil leak from the time it started April 20-May24. Also included below the video are satellite
images continuing on from when the video leaves off.
that is insanely out of control. if they dont plug this thing up soon that whole delta area is going to be screwed. do you know how sick people are
going to get if they eat any seafood from anywhere near that area?
man im glad im nowhere near that i really feel for the people living there. im surprised they havent gathered a posse and started hunting for BP
heads. somebody better pay for this.
That truly is heart-wrenchingly awful. I'm not an ecologist, but I would bet that the effects of this disaster are going to be ricocheting through
the wider ecosystem for decades to come. Hell, people may even be able to see remnants of what happened a century hence, in terms of the
"footprint" made in the animal and plant populations.
