Oil in Gulf of Mexico “disappears”

July 27, 2010

The leaky oil well in the Gulf of Mexico has been capped, and now ABC news reports that the millions of gallons of crude that leaked out has simply disappeared. Or, at least, clean-up crews are not finding as much of it on top of the water as they were before. They say that the slick on the surface has gone from the size of Kansas back down to the size of New Hampshire in just over a month. Skimmers have gone from picking up 25,000 barrels of oily water a week to just 200 barrels, and ABC says that they couldn’t see any surface oil when they recently flew over the site in a Coast Guard helicopter. A direct quote from ABC news reads: “experts say an astonishing amount of the oil has disappeared, reabsorbed into the environment.” ABC also quoted Professor Overton of Environmental Studies at Louisiana State University, saying “It’s mother nature doing her job.”

Towards the end of the article they finally mention that the chemical dispersants used by BP may have played a role, and admit that there is still oil beneath the surface. But we know from past reports from other news outlets that most of the oil is and always has been underneath the surface. Furthermore there have been complaints all along from environmental groups that the dispersants would merely break the oil down into smaller globules that could easily be breathed or swallowed by animals in the ocean, and that this would make it impossible to skim the oil out. Perhaps this is what they mean when they say that the oil has been absorbed by nature: through the gills and mouths of the sea life! Just a couple of weeks ago, the local news on WKRG in Alabama tested water samples on the beach and proved that even water that looks clear can actually contain a highly toxic level of petroleum that is invisible to the naked eye. So, as always, listen to the mainstream media at your own risk.
