Oil still fouling La. marshes, tour finds, Associated Press, January 7, 2011:
A Coast Guard official who tagged along on the tour said a plan was being developed to clean up the rapidly eroding marsh. However, he had no details and couldn't explain why there is no mechanism in place to keep the situation from getting worse eight and a half months after the disaster...
"Clearly there is oil here in the marsh but we are working as a team to find a best way to clean it up," said Coast Guard Lt. Cmdr. Dan Lauer.
