“Dramatic”: The damage “slapped you in the face” says biologist

Scientists find ‘dramatic’ damage to marine life near BP spill site, CNN, November 6, 2010:

Scientists have found evidence of “dramatic” damage to deep-sea coral near the site of the Gulf oil disaster, with one biologist describing it as a shocking find that “slapped you in the face.” …

BP officials could not immediately be reached for comment Saturday.

Ian MacDonald, a professor of oceanography at Florida State University, said the damage is significant because “this is the first indication of just how widespread the damage is.”

He wondered whether there is damage that has not yet been discovered.
