Louisiana Wildlife Fed: Red Oil Or Major Red Tide Found Near Gulf Coast?
Written by  {ga=admin}
Summary: The static kill appears to be successful and this week, the "final-kill" could be deployed to plug the BP oil well from  gushing into the Gulf of Mexico.  But, one environment group says the disaster may be far from over as they believe it has found either streams of red "oil or possibly a major red tide" off Louisiana.  
Now for months, scientists have been wondering if the BP oil well spill was causing any more problems other than spoiling waters, marshes and killing birds and other animals. 

 

Yet, now many believe that since the well is now capped by the successful static-kill, the disaster is over. 

Well, perhaps, not so fast.

Some news from the National Wildlife Federation's Louisiana staffers:

"On Sunday, August 8th, NWF staff did an overflight of the oil spill (thanks to SouthWings). Leaving out of New Orleans, we crossed the Chandeleur Sound and saw streams of red oil on the surface of the water caught in a rip line. As we flew farther into the sound, we saw mile after mile - as far at the eye could see - of what looked like red, dispersed oil just below the surface:

We sent some photos to a coastal scientist who is not sure if it is oil or possibly a major red tide. Either way, that would mean massive wildlife kills.

Our team is headed back out tomorrow with scientists to sample the water.

GPS coords: 29 46 58 ... 89 02 11

We'll keep you updated on what Monday's boat trip finds."

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Louisiana has endured adverse credit rating changes since edwards midDemocrat Gov. John Bel Edwards assumed office, completing a downgrade trifecta last week.
