What you see above isn't a rural gravel road. It's a Louisiana waterway, its surface completely covered with dead sea life -- a mishmash of species of fish, crabs, stingray and eel. New Orleans CBS affiliate WWL-TV reports that even a whale was found dead in the area, a stretch of coastal Louisiana hit hard this summer by oil from BP's busted Gulf well.


Ok my heart is pumping and this news simply put scares the living day light out of me. if this is the future we face after the ongoing BP disaster and the rest of the antiquiated oil derriks along the Gulf Shores, man we are in deep trouble and I can sense something much much bigger on the horizon than what anyone can imagine at this point.


Fish kills are fairly common along the Gulf Coast, particularly during the summer in the area near the mouth of the Mississippi, the site of this kill. The area is rife with dead zones -- stretches where sudden oxygen depletion can cause widespread death. But those kills tend to be limited to a single species of fish, rather than the broad sort of die-off involved in this kill.

And therein lies the concern of Gulf residents, who suspect this may be yet another side effect of the catastrophic BP oil spill.



Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser sounded the alarm bells Monday, distributing the photos here to the local media. Nungesser said that no testing is currently planned to determine how the kill may relate to the BP oil disaster, but he pleaded with officials from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to investigate.

Dont know about you but I sat simply stunned by what the picture in the Op made me think and feel, at first the shock left me dumbfounded and then kind of dead on the inside too. After a while it touched on the heart in ways I cannot even share openly, it is beyond words.
