Oil may be seeping from Deepwater Horizon site 13 Dec 2012 CBS News has learned that BP is set to embark Thursday on the fifth day of a little-known subsea mission under Coast Guard supervision to look for any new oil leaking from the Deepwater Horizon disaster. The BP oil rig exploded in 2010, killing 11 workers and sending a total estimated 206 million gallons of oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico for three months before it was capped. In September, a new oil sheen was spotted about 50 miles off the Louisiana coast. Tests confirmed the oil came from the infamous Macondo well underneath the Deepwater Horizon. BP's underwater vehicle observed oil seeping from the well's containment dome and, after a remote operation, [lied and] declared the leaks plugged on October 23. More oil continues to surface.

Unfinished Business: The Unspoken Link Between Dispersants and Sick Children in the Gulf of Mexico by Dr. Riki Ott



All six of Julie Creppel's young children are sick. Vomiting. Blisters all over their bodies, even in their throats. Boils. Severe headaches that wake them up screaming at night. Nausea. Fevers. Diarrhea. Stomach spasms that contort their bodies in pain. Skin lesions. Psoriasis. Nose bleeds that gush unexpectedly. Respiratory infections. Dizziness. Sinus infections. Hand, Foot, and Mouth disease. Hair loss. And more.
The Creppels live in Boothville, La., in south Plaquemines Parrish. Area health clinics and hospitals are experiencing an influx of sick children for treatment for a range of symptoms that began after the BP oil disaster. The increase in numbers of sick children coincides with the massive spraying of toxic chemical dispersants into the water and air that began in 2010. More troubling is the fact that the children are still having these symptoms to this day.

My comment on Dr. Riki Ott's story found here:

Until we end the corporations rule over WE THE PEOPLE, we will have more of the same. This is not the fault of WE THE PEOPLE, this accountability is the responsibility of the corporations who control our leaders and Washington DC and do the polluting while our government rewards them. This is why we have no Green Alternatives. We need to abolish Corporate Personhood forever. See HTTP://WWW.MOVETOAMEND.ORG.
