Record 'dead zone' predicted in Gulf of Mexico

Wow, our poor ecosystems are being hit pretty hard right now. We are still in the process of mixing all these disasters in with one another, I wonder how everything will play out in a year or two.

I found another thread here on ATS that describes the same incident only 2 years old, and it said it was a record breaking dead zone. So now 2 years later we have another record breaking dead zone.

I believe it. My biggest problem is that the say that about every year. Seriously, I've seen that same prediction three years in a row now.

This is an image made to show the size of the deadzone from 2002 of about 8,400 square miles (21,700 square Kilometers).

The deadzone for this year is predicted to be between 8,500 (22,000) and 9,500 square miles (24,600 km^2)

It sounds like a crap story to cover up the bp corexit damage. Now they have an excuse to let them fools off free of charges.

I find it funny how people thought the oil spill was going to completely destroy the gulf, and in reality, mother nature's own normal activity cause far more damage.

Obligatory second line.

Good point, I am sure that the oil has something to do with it, or at least add to it.
