America's Gulf Disaster Revisited
BP criminality caused millions to suffer.
by Stephen Lendman
April 20 marked the two year anniversary of BP's Gulf of Mexico disaster. Until Fukushima Daiichi's catastrophic nuclear meltdown, it was the largest ever environmental calamity.
It's devastated the lives of millions of area residents. It contaminated America's Gulf. Nothing in it's safe to eat. The incident's been plagued by coverup, denial, and Obama administration complicity to assure nothing slows hazardous deep water drilling.
In 2010, as disastrous conditions unfolded, Dahr Jamail reported firsthand from the Gulf. He's now discussing the aftermath. On April 18, he headlined , "Gulf seafood deformities alarm scientists," saying:
"Eyeless shrimp and fish with lesions are becoming common, with BP oil pollution believed to be the likely cause."
He quoted Louisiana State University's Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences Dr. Jim Cowan saying:
"And in my 20 years working on red snapper, looking at somewhere between 20 and 30,000 fish, I've never seen anything like this either."
