… [A]uthorities have re-opened grounds for fishing, crabbing and shrimping.

… [T]he beach was covered with oil, sheen and dispersant foam.

This is not surprising since we saw a huge thick blanket of the sheen and dispersant floating in the channel leading out to Horn Island on our recent sampling trip Aug. 8. …

Ocean Springs is populated and is home to many professional shrimpers, fishermen and crabbers whose lives have been turned upside down by the spill.

    What have these people done?
    They have opened a Pandora’s box and can not get the lid back on it.
    This could very well be the end of the oceans as we know it.

    The toxics started to spread the minute bp started using dispersants. Only a fool would think that somehow the oil mix would “stay” in one part of the Ocean. These idiots have started the collapse of civilization. I would highly suggest you [and your kids?] watch Hayao Miyazaki’s: Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind. This is our future.
