New Mile-Long Oil Slick from BP’s Gulf Macondo Well

Debunks BP’s Claim for Source of Leaking Oil

The Times-Picayune reported Wednesday:

An overflight inspection of the BP Deepwater Horizon disaster site 40 miles south of Grand Isle this past weekend found a new, mile-long oil sheen, which has prompted the U.S. Coast Guard to again require BP to inspect the wellhead and debris area on the floor of the Gulf of Mexico with a remotely operated vehicle for the source of the oil. The flight was piloted by Bonny Schumaker, founder of the California-based non-profit On Wings of Care, which has conducted surveillance flights in the Gulf in the two years since the spill.

So much for BP’s “leaking cofferdam” theory.

Note:  The new leak from BP’s site is totally separate from the explosion on a different drilling platform in the Gulf which recently killed several workers and leaked oil into the water.

Absolutely nothing has changed since the 2010 spill, and so more and more destructive oil spills may occur.  Former EPA officials and attorneys put it: BP will “kill again”.
