"A persistent, mysterious "oil sheen" in the Gulf of Mexico near the site of BP’s Deepwater Horizon disaster grew to more than seven-miles long and one-mile wide during a recent stretch of calm seas, based on aerial observations made by a former NASA physicist turned environmental activist...
Regardless of the source of the sheen, more disheartening to Shumaker is the "dearth of marine life" in a 30 to 50 mile radius of the site of the Deepwater Horizon disaster. She’s flies just about every month all year long.
"Since the fall of 2011, now about 14 months, I see no turtles, few if any dolphins, few if any rays — Manta rays, cownose, golden rays, any of them — few sharks, few bait balls, all of the things we used to see," she said."
CollapseNet readers should not be surprised by this. There is no "mystery" here. We have been covering the continuing disaster in the Gulf of Mexico since it began in 2010. Matthew Simmons, who passed away during the height of the Macondo catastrophe, called the official story a massive cover-up. A veritable crime against humanity.
Listen to Matt Simmons clearly articulate, back in 2010, the present situation facing the Gulf in 2013. The truth has been leaking out of the sea floor since that fateful day, waiting to be noticed.
It has taken a two and a half years for this story to finally be RE-picked-up by the "main stream media". This is more than a vindication for those who have doubted the official story, Matt Simmons included. It is a wake up call. The Gulf is dying. Admitting there is a problem is the first step towards rectifying it. Spread the word before we lose another two years and that much more of the Gulf.
