The Oil's Still There

You may not have seen this in the news- the main-stream media seems to have made a practice of focusing on everything but what we need to know...

Anyway, according to this article and the articles it references, the oil from April's oil-spill has not dissipated, but rather settled to the ocean floor. If that is the case, the eco-system in the Gulf will not only be disrupted, but gradually destroyed from the bottom up (literally and figuratively).

Oh, and for the record, I don't believe that the oil-spill was BP's "fault" like a lot of people are condemning them for. Sometimes things just happen; or there are other times when a scapegoat is thought necessary- and this time the blame has gone to BP. That's not to say that BP has no responsibility in the matter, just that there is probably more to this than has been/is being made known.

...And you might not want to read the comments section under the article linked to. The people there just aren't very nice.

Anyway, Shabbat Shalom!
