No one knows for sure yet.....However, it was not just a sheen...there were "blobs" of oil seen as well. They will know for sure when it's tested
to see if it is from the Macondo site.
The "blobs" were reported by those who may not know what they are talking about. I appreciate your reserve and your rationality. Believe me, I live
with anger toward BP every day. And i hope beyond hope that this report is nothing. I would not be surprised if there is truth to it. I live every day
waiting for the other shoe to drop.
Unfortunately, there are those who only seek to sensationalize, even if they think they are some sort of dilettante freedom fighters.
If there is something real to this, it will be known very soon. The fact that Louisiana fishermen haven't reported such a thing probably means it
isn't true. While a small few are still getting BP checks, most have no love lost for the company.
Chances are, some folks who are unfamiliar with the area saw something normal and reported it as oil related. Large vessels often leave a sheen and
sometimes there is a discharge from other wells/platforms that is relatively small.
I know that the BP spill will affect our communities for a while but unnecessary panics/stories that are based on falsehood do nothing to help out
Thank you for your concern. Again, if something real happens, wwl.com and nola.com will be reporting on it.
