News that oil/dispersants are “COATING” seafloor and headed east hits Florida residents: “It looks as if we’ll never get over this oil… At least, not in my lifetime”


"Oil that dispersed in the Gulf of Mexico is still out there, coating deep-water spawning grounds and potentially resurfacing on Panhandle beaches, University of South Florida researchers say," writes Kenric Ward in an article for Sunshine State News.

"News of the new report is just filtering down to coastal residents," according to Ward. A restaurant owner on Panama City Beach, FL said, "It looks as if we'll never get over this oil spill... At least, not in my lifetime. We have relatives in the United Kingdom who think all we're doing is conning BP for money. I wish they would come over here and really see how it feels when we have to close down a business it's taken so many years to establish."

  • hope you recover from this quick

    Oil is not life.
    That is the truth.
    We must change our energies, cause this is just one terrible sample of the more terribles to come if we go on playing the dangerous wheel of fortune. Fortune is not a truly companion. It is a very irresponsible companion. Truth is facts, and real facts are what they really are.
    Hope it will go on without causing too much pain to all you living there, but wishes sometimes are just words to the wind if the ones who have to do for human and nature good are deaf...
    Be patient, be strong and... wish it never would happen anymore...
