  • Say NO to Corporate America

    This is OUTRAGEOUS! They aren't even trying to clean up these plumes, I guess that would be admitting they exist! There has been enough information on this website to warrant a closing of the ENTIRE Gulf of Mexico! The seafood is unsafe to eat- what creatures do survive should be left alone to help replenish what will/has died. Apalachicola Bay is the second largest estuary in this country!

    What she left out is the smell factor. When the wind blows just right you can smell oil.

    Better leave people


    You ain't seen nothing yet

    I checked the Florida Dept. of Environmental Protection website to see if this report was on there. Now they're not even showing any oil impact reports. And the last water sampling posted was September 2. It's quite obvious that they don't care.

    This is in my neck of the woods. I'm seriously ticked. Lot of good it does.

    She did not show the view to the west and as a former oil spill worker that has not been compensated and been hirt I can tell that that is run off from an inlet. At least thats what they told us to say. Just like when they left us to walk five miles down a beach in work boots and jeans in the dark bececause they forgot where are station was. People did not have bathrooms or water. Urination incidents and fainting was a regular occurance. I don't know what else to say but I will never go back there!

  • JEnny: You, and those who were with you on the night that you were abandoned on the beach -- should engage the best lawyer possible. You deserve generous compensation because of their incompetence.

    You must respect and value yourself, and not allow others to negligently endanger and mistreat you. It's against the law. Both man and God's.
