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.
For some reason, the government, the media and academia are all buying the BP line, "everything's fine in the Gulf".
In fact, large portions of the Gulf bottom are still oily and evidently dead, and BP is getting away with killing it.
Never forget - - Obama is the all time top recipient of campaign donations from BP.
