BP caused it, Obama stymied efforts to contain it, now it’s killing the Gulf

Short of a nuclear weapon you couldn’t come up with a better plan to devastate the Gulf states

Scientist finds Gulf bottom still oily, dead

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Oil from the BP spill remains stuck on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico, according to a top scientist's video and slides that she says demonstrate the oil isn't degrading as hoped and has decimated life on parts of the sea floor.

That report is at odds with a recent report by the BP spill compensation czar that said nearly all will be well by 2012.

At a science conference in Washington Saturday, marine scientist Samantha Joye of the University of Georgia aired early results of her December submarine dives around the BP spill site. She went to places she had visited in the summer and expected the oil and residue from oil-munching microbes would be gone by then. It wasn't.
