Here we go again? Massive oil slick forms near Deepwater Horizon site

Some people said that BP never really sealed the Deepwater Horizon leak, at least not properly. Others think they pulled some kind of variation of Three-Card Monty. Be that as it may, there have been allegations in the past few weeks that the Mocando Well is, indeed, leaking to the surface again, allegations backed up by a growing body of evidence and some very peculiar activity.

As usual, BP is in denial mode. Rawstory had this to say:

A California nonprofit organization dedicated to the protection and preservation of wildlife has discovered what seems to be a massive oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico near the area of the original Deepwater Horizon spill.

In a flight over the Gulf Tuesday, OnWingsOfCare.org founder and pilot Dr. Bonny Schumaker spotted an oil slick that stretched for nearly 10 miles.

Last week, two Louisiana State University men took a boat into the Gulf and returned with video evidence of large blooms of crude oil swelling up to the water's surface where the doomed oil rig once hovered.

BP had firmly denied that the well is continuing to leak.

"None of this is true," they said in a statement.

Rawstory also linked to this article by of the Tallahassee Environmental News Examiner, from which we have this excerpt:

Over the past two weeks, I have been closely following reports of renewed leaking in the Macondo oil field, the site of last year's Deepwater Horizon disaster (Map). First, New Orleans Lawyer Stuart Smith reported that nearly 40 ships were hired by BP to conduct a boom-laying mission over the August 13th weekend. Next, nonprofit organizations On Wings of Care and Gulf Restoration Network conducted a joint flyover of the spill site, bringing back photographic evidence of fresh oil near the site of the Macondo well. This in turn prompted reporters from the Mobile Press-Register to hire a boat out to the site, where they found massive "globules" of oil rising to the surface, creating a growing sheen on the water (you can read about that here).

Today, pilot Bonny Schumaker of On Wings of Care once again took to the air over the Gulf of Mexico, finding evidence of what appears to be a massive leak near the site of last year's oil drilling disaster. (FOR THE FULL ARTICLE, CLICK HERE)

Every effort has to be made at this point to get public officials to acknowledge that "Yes, Houston (or New Orleans or Washington), we have a problem".
