BP's Oil Poisoned Gulf Shore New Year's Eve

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

New poisonous tar balls that washed ashore on New Year’s Eve along the Gulf have tested positive as being from BP’s wrecked Macondo Prospect, according to officials and an environmental attorney.

“Some 44 months after the worst offshore oil spill in U.S. history, crude oil is still spoiling what had been finest white-sand beaches in this country,” stated New Orleans-based attorney Stuart Smith on Friday.

A Florida state environmental official sent photos taken on New Year’s Eve of the new tar balls to Smith. They were from Florida’s Escambia County beaches.

Some 42 pounds of those tar balls were collected and tested, confirming they are from BP’s Macondo oil field, the site of the catastrophe, according to Smith.

“In fact, there were so many tar balls from BP’s 2010 spill that a Coast Guard oil-spill response team was called in.”

Not only are BP’s lethal tar balls a routine occurrence. Massive tar mats — in one case about half the size of a football field — are prevalent, such as those found in the barrier islands off Louisiana, closer to where the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded, according to Smith.

Some of BP’s oil washing ashore was recently found to contain flesh-eating bacteria that could possibly infect beachgoers who come in contact.

There are also more Gulf state residents suffering and dying from the H1N1 flu virus than there are in other parts of the country.

An Australian national news program did more to disclose to the public the ongoing lethality of BP’s Gulf crime than any American TV network has to date.

BP’s oil is still leaking from the Macondo Prospect. This is still being censored by corporate-controlled media and the government, as this reporter disclosed this past summer and in her book, Vampire of Macondo.

“The non-stop fouling of our beaches is an unpardonable sin, and one for which BP should be apologizing every single day,” Smith said Friday. “To the contrary, this hugely profitable oil company has been lashing out over the last few months, hurling allegations of fraud at residents and small business owners who dare to seek some economic justice. The allegations seem intended to distract people from an environmental crisis that is ongoing.

“I find BP guilty,” asserts Smith, adding, “of incredible hubris.”

Vampire of Macondo, Life, crimes and curses in south Louisiana that Powerful Forces Don’t want you to know,” is Deborah Dupre’s most recent book, 450 pages packed corporate media censored stories about the BP-wrecked Macondo Prospect crime in the Gulf of Mexico continuing its catastrophic human and environmental devastation. Watch the book video trailer here.

      Americans are being lethally hit from all sides now – mainly from Big Energy. This is 100% preventable. If only people would stop this mass suicide by halting fossil fuel support – before we reach the point of no return.

      Thank you Deborah,people think BP actually cleaned up this mess.But the dispersants they used were as bad or worse than the oil.Greed is always at the root. These are 25 of the worst.!

      • Deborah Dupre

        Thank you Mississippi. I agree except for one point: greed is only part of this tragedy. So are public denial and dependence on fossil fuels, eh? I see this as mass suicide and genocide that Americans are perpetuating by not demanding alternatives to the dirty, dangerous, unhealthy petrochemical-military-industrial-complex.

      Thank you Deborah Dupre for your hard work and excellent reporting on this. I live just south of Jackson, MS, and when the weather is right can smell that we are getting coastal air. I know its getting up here to some degree, but beyond anecdotal (veggie garden and fig tree issues, for example) I can’t really say how much damage it’s doing here.

      That doesn’t matter. I haven’t read your book, but you are absolutely correct when you say this is a major human and environmental catastrophe!

      And speaking of lethal threats from all sides, I wonder whether you saw Dave Hodges on the Common Sense Show talking about BP and other corporate maneuverings both before and after the spill? I excerpted it here:

        Thank you Icliks, for your readership and the link. Remember, if you can smell it, you are being poisoned and that the effect is cumulative – that is, even small amounts stay in the body and keeping adding. The book is available on kindle. Let me know if it’s a problem ordering it – for any reason. Best courage.

      Thank you Deborah, for your non-stop willingness to supply the citizens with REAL news, and facts that are supported by it. I would like to ask if you or any of your followers here have ever heard of a man named Eduard Albert Meier? My reason for asking, is based on my personal research into this mans life story, and the amazing events that he has witnessed and those that he has foretold before their occurrence. The full scope of the BP oil disaster the meltdown at Fukushima and the super worse case scenario that has in fact already unfolded and threatens life all over this planet were reported by this man long before the rest of the world realized what had happened. There are over 150 published examples of events that have occurred since 1958 that he stated would in fact occur some decades before and many within mere minutes of the time in which he stated they would. He published these things, not as vague possibilities that came to him in his sleep or in some sort of trance state, but as shared information from a race of humans that state they have a direct connection with this planet though their ancestors visitations here thousands of years ago. The story is so compelling and there is an abundance of evidence to support his claims, so much so that it would be considered criminal, in my opinion, to ignore the ramifications, as most governments have, (surprise, surprise). If you have not yet done so, please take some time to research his story, I have little doubt that you will be completely shocked at why this mans story is the most important story never told.

      According to a source I trust more than any private company, or government agency, as of 6-14-2010 this planets occupants were using 14.5 BILLION liters of oil every day! And on that same day there was 14.5 million liters of oil leaking from the BP disaster area per day, and that figure was subject to increasing due to any change in pressures. This source also states that the toxic chemicals besides the oil itself will reach the upper northern Atlantic by late 2011, and there will be a reaction of the climate as a result, that will only get worse as time goes by. So not only this planets flora and fauna will be affected by the pollution, but the weather and weather conditions and ultimately the climate over the entire planet will be affected as well.
