Although BP has spent upwards of $100 million to sponsor tourism ads for the Gulf, the stark reality of the disaster they perpetuated continues to linger for those in the region. April 20th marked the two-year anniversary of America’s worst oil spill and is cause for reflection, as well as a continued evaluation of this event which has irrevocably altered the health of citizens, wildlife and the environment.
Evidence continues to mount that the use of the dispersant Corexit has led to an even worse situation than the spill alone. Researchers and scientists are now uncovering the true extent of the damage done, as horrifically mutated shrimp, crab, and fish are piling up, forming a major threat to the food chain.
Abby Martin, reporting for RT below, addresses these new health and environmental concerns that indicate we should be nowhere close to forgetting the BP disaster; rather, we should be examining ways to avert a complete collapse of the ecosystem, and renew our efforts to hold BP and the U.S. government accountable for their continued coverup.
