Dolphins and Whale basted in BP Oil!















This is without a doubt, the most disturbing video I have ever produced.
I saw at least 100 Dolphins dying or struggling to get out of the oil. It was many miles from any water that was not contaminated. In all likelihood, the Dolphins and Sperm Whale seen in this video are dead by now.

The Dolphins were disoriented. Some already dead and others struggling to keep their heads up high enough to see the fires. The Sperm Whale was covered in oil.

We have to spread this around the world! Who will be accountable for their lives?

All involved in this disaster will be held accountable to a higher power than any on Earth. Man should not destroy the gentle creatures God created.

  1. OH John......Thanks for having the courage to go find this. I would rather deal with the truth.

  2. The people directly resposible must be held accountable before they draw their last breath. I want to see them punished NOW - no mythical afterlife retribution, thank you. Dolphins are self-aware just like humans. Most people are ignorant and don't know such sobering, humbling facts. These entities (I refuse to use the term "animal" because it suggests our superiority) are NOT inferior to us. In our little arrogant minds we believe we've been "chosen by gods". The disatser is one more proof where such mind-set has led our species. Infuriating and crushingly sad.

  10. This is so sad. BP have no idea what the hell they're doing. They can't even set up their boom lines correctly! You don't put them PARALLEL to shore, you set them up in diagonal lines so that they'll funnel the oil to a particular spot, where it can then be siphoned off. You'll still miss most of the stuff that's in the deeper layers of water, but there are ways of getting rid of that, too. Why doesn't our government do something about this?? The entire Gulf is going to be one big vat of toxic sludge! And then ocean currents will carry it to other parts of the world, too. When is this going to end??

    The Bible is wrong about the oceans turning to blood; they are turning into crude oil, instead.

  11. Thank you for this video. I am so angry. Why are we allowing our government to hide the truth from us. It feel like we live in a communist country now. There appeared to be no effort to clean up anything. Everything is dying. I just can not believe this is the best we can do. What happens when people start dying? Will they cover that up too? I already know the answer......

  12. The federal government *IS* doing something about it.

    They are preventing state and local governments from protecting their shorelines by blocking skimming operations, barrier building, and sending in the Coast Guard to stop barges from siphoning up oil.

    They are refusing to issue waivers for the Jones Act which would allow foreign flagged vessels to assist. They are refusing to grant permits to ships that can remove 99% of the oil from the water because the idiotic EPA regs require that 99.9985% be removed.

    The federal government is responding. The response is "drop dead gulf states, we've got a crisis to take advantage of."

  15. "Stewards of the Earth." Yeah, right. I feel so much loathing. Some people say that humanity is on the brink of self-realization. I want to believe, but how can I - we wipe out entire species so we can drive our SUVs, put God's beautiful creatures, the "dumb animals" in cages so we can gawk at them, rob from the poor to sustain the rich and lie to each other all the while. Steward of the Planet? We are not even close. The animals of the planet are nearer to God than we.
    Can you spell reprehensible?

  16. The Jones Act is not preventing foreign vessel response. No foreign vessel has applied for a Jones Act waiver. Meanwhile, there are American skimming vessels that are sitting unused- why is that? Please stop spreading this lie about the Jones Act around. Thank you.

  19. What do you do? The BP criminals know the truth. It slipped out a few weeks ago. When you can't get satisfaction from the president, you go up a few levels to bp. If you're a little person, forget it. The bush/Cheney energy policy has quite simply put in motion the destruction of our planet. What a shame.

  24. The piece on msnbc was unbelievable, thank-you John and Southwings for your bravery. I grew up in Galveston Island Texas and I am very worried that people are in danger from this crude and chemicals that are in our waters already, how can it not be! With greed causing the recession and now this great sin being committed, I just don't see how much longer mankind can go on, I feel like we are at the beginning of the end, I am very sad about this. Is there anyway to get this film to President Obama?

  25. Dear Mr. Wathen; My father created the KEEP AMERICA BEAUTIFUL and DON'T BE A LITTERBUG National Campaigns. Until his death from pollution-caused leukemia at age 93, he was the bane of industrial polluters in and around New Jersey. As his son, my father's relentlessly dedicated fight against pollution in any form deeply affected me. I am now a 59 year old multimedia artist with a special dedication to Progressive Advocacies, to whom I donate high caliber PhotoShop PR ammunition, in memory of my Father's lifelong work to protect our planet, and to carry the torch he passed to me with Courage, Conviction and Commitment similar to yours, via your vitally honest video images and reportage of this horrific environmental holocaust. I have digitally created a hopefully powerful, iconic image of an oil-soaked Louisiana Brown Pelican, wings raised in agony like an ironically doomed Phoenix, mired at the top of an oil-soaked Earth as seen from space. The copy I wrote to bracket this image is 'OIL'S WELL THAT ENDS WELLS." If you would provide me an email address via which I could send this original image to you, and if you thought it could help your vital Environmental Advocacies in any way whatsoever, well sir, it's yours, pro bono, for the asking. We all must do what we can to save our planet, and ourselves, from our very worst mortal enemy: Ourselves. Sincerely, TR Cervasio, pansatyric at hotmail dot com.

  26. Had the president waived the Jones act at the onset of the disaster all out side help that offered would not have needed to "apply" it is not a lie that he not only refused the many offers, he also refused to waive the Jones act.

    The Obama admin knew of the problems with Horizon weeks before it blew, The diaster falls upon BP yes but the after math and it's scope is shared.
    Had there been as much urgency to prepare and move in as there was to take over the victims fund and collect the money we would not be where it is today

    ReplyDelete
  27. Sure, sure, sure, blame Obama. The vultures on the right jump on every opportunity to claim he's taking over private industry. Yet when he's tied up by the stupids, suddenly it's his fault. Meanwhile we've got idiots like Minnesota's Michelle Bachmann insisting that we are extorting money from poor BP. She should be left on a raft in the middle of the oil slick to see for herself and eventually suffocate from the fumes.
    Sad, sad video. Keep up the good work John.

  28. All of us "small people" are outraged and grief-stricken and feel so helpless. We do what we can. The only people who are not affected are those who are so blissfully busy attending to their own lives and ignoring the news, because it's easier not to SEE... Who wants to hear depressing news anyway?
    The rest of us are devastated and see no good end in sight for people or sea life. God help us all.

  29. I watched this video last night on Keith Olberman and felt like I couldn't breathe. I am sharing it with everyone I know and I am talking about the entire disaster to anyone that listens; although I have found many people don't want to know the truth. I am not sure if it is too devastating or they just don't care.

    Every human being that knows about this should protest, donate to cleanup, recovery and conservation groups, drive less, buy hybrids,use public transportation, stop buying all of the garbage sold in plastic bottles, recycle. My daughter and I belong to The Defenders of Wildlife, the Ocean Conservancy and the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. These organizations need support, manpower and money to save these living, breathing creatures who are suffering because of human greed, power,complacency and laziness. Volunteer at beach and waterway clean-ups, teach your children to respect nature, donate all you can!!!! Our future and our world depends on it!

  31. According to the Vedas (Srimad Bhagavatam), there are Seven [Universal] Mothers, among them being our own bio Mother, Mother Earth, and the Cow. And if especially innocent Cows are lined up and methodically killed in slaughterhouses, all ills fall upon the human race for such great crimes against Nature and God. If you are willing to kill your Mother who sustain you throughout your life (as the Cow does) even more than your own Mother who feeds you her breast milk only a few months; and if you are willing to kill your Father (Bull, who can sustain you as well or better then your own Father, by pulling a plough and helping to produce foodgrains for human and animal alike, then civilization -- according to the ancient Vedas -- is ALREADY OVER. And then justifying killing the baby or human embryo in the womb becomes easy; murder, domestic violence, and total desecration of the earth via clearcutting trees, excessive mining and drilling for oil, all become comonplace. Veda says it all begins with respecting your Mothers and Fathers; and conversely, if mankind harms these innocent creatures (just as if we become barbaric enough to wantonly kill our own bio parents), then the path to hell is open and mankind loses its sensitivity toward any and all beings, the Earth Mother and the Universe also, which is all created by God for His own purpose and enjoyment. This is an inescapable conclusion and common sense, but mankind has lost its sense, as this Biblical Apocalyptic disaster unfolds. And speaking of the Bible, Isaiah 66.3 states quite clearly: He that slayeth the ox is the same as he that killeth a man; bible also states to honor thy father and mother. So those of you who have a heart for saving whales and dolphins and are willing to state your case emphatically to a friend over a couple of burgers, according to the Vedas, in fact YOU (Christ said: "Ye hypocrites!) are the cause of this karmic disaster, as ye sow ye reap!! You can blame BP, this one and that one, but according to all Scriptures , Eastern, Mideastern, Indian, God sanctions even mans' destructive tendencies when the world is out of balance by modern demons exploiting the body of the Cow and the Earth for their wanton lustful and greedy propensities. Thus if you are not part of the [universal] solution, you are indeed (and thought) part of the problem; don't blame others if you don't support Cow and Earth protection in deed and thought, blame yourself, as not a blade of grass (or barrel of oil) moves but by the Grace [or condemnation] of God. You can view my (Stephen Voith) vids on youtube for further Vedic and common sensical evidence of these points. thank you for your time

  32. All these disasters are stated in the worlds scriptures and are the karmic result of killing cows and human embryos. Even the Bible itself states (Isaiah 66.3) that he that slayeth the ox is the same as he that killeth a MAN.
    honor thy Father and Mother. If you are sustaining your life via cows milk Cow is your mother. Earth is your mother, she sustains your existence. By killing innocent cows the Vedas state the every imaginable disaster and atrocity will follow: war, incurable diseases, natural and man-caused disasters, domestic violence, animal and child abuse. So, in the karmic sense, EVERYone committing these sins/crimes can see in the mirror the cause of this present calamity om tat sat. Please view vids on yutube by Stephen Voith for more info

  34. The person filming this should have put a Circular Polarizing filter in front of the lens. That would have cut down a lot of the glare, improved the contrast and likely shown the oil more clearly.

    Just curious why the media does not seem to be upset over the no fly zone and fought it in court.

  35. I feel that everyone with any shred of guilt in this matter should be banished to live in the midst of the damage they have created. Perhaps Tony Heyward should be forced to anchor his Yacht in the mess... and live there for eternity...that is the life he deserves to 'have back', and with him every miserable oil baron whose greed has wrought this catastrophe...

  36. Where are the Global Warming Alarmists?

    Millions of cubit feet of natural gas being flared daily. Thousands of barrels of oil also being burned off daily.

    Do the Global Warmists not care about all the CO2 being given off? These huge space heaters are also directly heating the atmosphere. Why have we not heard from the so called consensus of scientists about the CO2 footprint? Why has the American Nobel Prize winner, documentary film maker, book writer and almost US President not made constant speeches denouncing the huge release of CO2? Why have we not heard from the climate study center in England about the perils of all this released CO2 - you know the center which received funding from BP among others?

    Where is the Hockey Stick graph showing not the temperature rise but showing the increasing release of HUGE amounts of CO2?

    All this while residents of Japan were asked to go to bed an hour early to reduce their carbon footprint!! Which was stupid to begin with, because if couples go to bed early and they are not sleepy, then nine months later Japan should see a big increase in it's birth rate which will result in a huge increase in the family carbon footprint for years to come - negating any piddly saving in carbon footprint by going to bed one hour early.

    How come my car has to be fitted with a catalytic converter to reduce emissions while they get to burn thousands of gallons of oil per day, without any environmental control devices like catalytic converters? Getting rid of the emission control devices would increase gas mileage for millions of cars. Hey, would that not also reduce the amount of gasoline needed by motorists?

    Enough questions - eager minds looking for some answers.

    "For the 12-hour period from noon Thursday until midnight, approximately 9,515 barrels of oil were collected and about 4,150 barrels of oil and 28.6 million cubic feet of natural gas were flared."

  43. We're destroying the earth. The scale of this disaster is epic. Who will save us but ourselves?
    As much as I respect the viewpoints of others, the cause of this was manmade! And preventable. Rather than punishment for some karmic wrongdoing, the spill came as the result of corruption at the Minerals and Mining Service (MMS.) If you want to blame something, blame the drugs and prostitutes the MMS accepted from Big Oil lobbyists, or the corruption and cronyism in our government.
    Can't we look at the problem logically, and de-mystify it? In order to stop it, we need to take action together. I'd say our reaction to the crisis tells us more about who we are as Americans than the cause of the crisis. The danger lies in blaming immorality and sin for what are easily prevented breakdowns in regulatory enforcement! I can't speak for G*d, so I'm not going to blame this on anyone, or say that the dolphins and whales are facing the wrath of G*d. Instead it was a failure to maintain adequate safety standards--human error and greed by trying to take shortcuts by BP.
    The cleanup is inadequate. It's still not too late to try and stop the scope of contamination. Rather than sit around and gloat in the punishment G*d is dosing out, people should pray for help. And if that fails, it'll probably mean that we Americans, not our souls, lack the technological capacity to repair what we've done--an issue of science and collective will. If anything, the failed cleanup signals an end to the shared sacrifices that made America what it was. Is that unified America gone forever? Are we just a mob, united in nothing more than everyone trying to get the most out of capitalism, while many in the middle class get poorer? I'd look to religion and spirituality not for blame, but to reunite the nation. Our nation has reached a spiritual death, to quote Martin Luther King. It's not so much that an outside force or actor is causing it as much as it is we who are causing it. That doesn't take away from the responsibility of our gov't to protect us and repair the damage (not to mention preventing a recurrence.)

  50. I wonder how whale and dolphin meat tastes like with a little natural oil coated on them. Does the oil seep into the skin and give it a oily flavor or does it make the moisture content in the meat stay fully flavored? I dont know, maybe perhaps I can also make a pair of boots out of their skins as well! I also heard whale blubber makes great fuel too!

  52. I am surprised at how no one seems to see the patterns here? Obama took office with the plan to effect a cap and trade program and a reduction in the use of fossil fuels. That is being accomplished by this spill and will go further when oil and gas prices sky rocket back to 2008 levels. He can only make it happen because he is in a position to make it happen, hence when contacted by BP about the size of that well and its' possible effect on oil the well was blown up. By "Hook or by Crook" the CIA goes both ways at the same time to ensure their missions are accomplished. Anyone wonder why all the coincidences here? Do Americans use their brains? Oh, that is right..it is impossible for a conspiracy to occur at the highest levels of economic class because those people are good-natured folk with only your best interests at heart.

    I sent an email to the white house the other day, but still have not heard a response... guess I didn't really expect one. I also sent it to the Editor of the Washington Post hoping that they will publish it, but apparently not. I am going to keep trying though... I think the only way that we can make a difference is to make our voices heard. Here is what I would like for Mr. Obama to hear:

    Mr. President:

    I felt compelled to write to explain to you why I feel that you are failing in your promise to me as an American citizen. I want you to know that I voted for you with high hopes for the changes that you would bring about. At the very least I was proud of my country for having "grown up" enough to put aside our pettiness and prejudices and to look instead for the depth of a man's character. I have heard you talk about how it is not always easy to do the right thing, but if it is the right thing, you must do it. That is why I voted for you. My question for you now is, do you truly believe it?

    I feel as though you are not leading this country. Why have we not taken over the operations in the Gulf disaster? I hear you blame a policy that you did not create. Well, damn it, are you the president or are you not? Change the policy! You have an enormous amount of power at your disposal. Use it. You have fleets of oilers at your disposal... No, I don't expect you to suck the oil out of the gulf with a straw, but can't you provide ships to aid in siphoning the oil at it's source to prevent spreading?

    I hear you looking for people to blame for this disaster, but to be honest, right now I really don't care who is to blame. Blame comes later. We are in disaster mode. When your house is burning to the ground you don't try to figure out who lit the match, you call the fire department. You get an extinguisher. We must stop this oil spill. We are killing this planet, rapidly. This is not the time to try to please everyone. This problem cannot be solved by words and rhetoric. Now is the time for action. President Obama, please step up and deliver on your promise.

  57. This is the Soloman Option promised to us for years by the Zionists who have posted it in their 22 Protocols... which says that if the world does not do what they want it to and finally try to end their stranglehold on it, they will take everything that lives down with them. Google the Protocols of the Elders and see for yourself... This is what our champions of the alternate press have been telling us for years! It's here now and the battle for our very souls and planet are now at risk and we can say that we saw it with our own eyes! All the things that are now being dumped on us have been planned for many years but people would not listen and beieve it was Real! Will now you can believe and see for yourselves but now we are all working on an unlevel playing field. Thank God we have some friends up stairs who have been trying to awaken up since 1950 to this coming danger... who, by now, number 13 million beings from 200 star nations who have come to evacuate all who wish to go to the stars and wait for Mother Earth to cleanse Herself. Then we can come back and try to do it right again. There are plenty of places on the internet who are talking about ascension and space beings who are our original families as we all are seeded from our orignal species. We will be, as you say, going to a family reunion! Human life as we know it is doomed and only those who follow the One God will be left to provide the seeds for the new Galactic Human Being... IT HAS BEGUN!

  59. Remember John, everywhere you see the orange plumes, the ones which are clearly not just a sheen but really thick and the masses which are so viscous it doesn't even drip when you pick it up, this is the stuff which we found to be 15' to 25' THICK! We dove these plumes while near the 24 Mile Rigs and found them to be the worst and thickest of the dives we made. Point is, this stuff is not just what your visuals show us. While your work is so very vital, we need to have non-partisan science going on out there taking samples from the Gulf floor, on up through the water column, checking areas spotted by you! There needs to be a more concerted effort and not so many different entities pulling at any funding which may be available. We need unselfish organization from all of the various groups where at least everyone is pulling in the same direction and making use of resources shared and used in the best manner possible. You KNOW my take is this: We MUST rebuild the Barrier Islands and use River Diversions to flush out the saltwater and replenish the sediments and freshwater where The Good Lord built it to be originally.
    Keep doing your great work and here's to bringing all the factions together and stay unified~! Power To The PEOPLE_~!
