The Gulf is still UNDER ATTACK!

It's been a while since I have posted here due to local demands on me at home in Tuscaloosa Al.

I have to bring you up to speed on what is STILL happening in the Gulf of Mexico.
 THE OIL IS STILL IN THE GULF!  and so are the people.

I got a call a few days ago saying that there was more oil in the Gulf and would I come down to fly with SouthWings to document a report given to us by John Amos at Sky Truth. After the 2010 Deep Water Horizon disaster we decided to create a response team for these type incidents. For years these type "leaks" have been occurring under the guise as "natural seeps" and reports of miniscule losses by the industry. We can now tell you that that is not always the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

This latest incident was due to a leak thought to come from the same source reported to you back in June of 2010. It was called "Diamond Offshore" back then and was leaking from damage to the well during Hurricane Ivan back in 2004. The well has been problematic and causing sheen like this off and on ever since.

Why is the American government still subsidizing this errant industry?

It is time for the American People to wake up and be able to hear and see the truth. Extraction technology, coal, oil and gas are depleting and dirty resources. If the entire price for the deaths, health, safety, environmental cost to the communities were properly assessed to the responsible industries there would be more incentives for naturally renewable energy resources like wind, solar, and Geo-thermal.

 How long will Americans settle for half truths and outright lies about the true cost on carbon energy sources. It is not an overnight process but we MUST begin to realize that defending a depleting resource is like the Ostrich with it's head in the sand. While our heads are in the sand, our arses are in the air and it's not pretty what's happening back there out of sight!
