But one of the most compelling comments came from LSU scientist Linda Hooper-Bui, who has been studying impacts of BP oil on insects in the sensitive marshes of Louisiana. Some of her research is expected to be made public soon. “You go out to the marshes and they are silent. We’re in danger of becoming a Silent Spring….this is not just our gulf, but it’s America’s gulf.”
