If I lived in the area, I would definitely consider evacuating. I know it's easier said than done, but when there is no up close, independent press
coverage and no word you can trust about how safe or unsafe the situation is, well with all that uncertainty, I would be looking into relocating.
I've heard experts and knowledgeable people on C2C and Rense say pretty much the same thing, which is that this particular crisis is a big unknown.
We've never been in this situation before (the Ixtoc blowout comes closest, but that was in shallower water). So, we really don't know how bad it
will get or when the air quality might suddenly become severely toxic. If the giant methane bubble comes up (as some fear) then you've got air
that's not only deadly to breathe but flammable.
I know I'll be called a fear monger, but I'm just saying if anyone really knows up-to-the-minute air toxicology, they're not telling, and there's
a serious concern that if and when the situation gets deadly, it will be too late to tell some of the population that may not make it out in time.
Erring on the side of safety, I would think that if a person can relocate now, perhaps he or she should seriously consider it. Some of the people
whose businesses have been destroyed should get relocation expenses paid by BP as part of their settlement ASAP.
If we really had a free press of bulldog journalists who would sue (along with concerned scientists) to gain immediate access to all current and
present data, then we might not feel the urge to relocate or evacuate, but as it is now, everyone is in the dark and depending upon BP (credibility
zero) and the U.S. government which up to now has done a poor job responding to this crisis just as it failed miserably in the Katrina crisis.
