In this video, Philippe Cousteau Jr., grandson of Jacques Cousteau, and Good Morning America’s Greg Champion grab a camera and their wet suits and dive into the mess of dispersed oil floating beneath the waves in the Gulf of Mexico. 

See the oil spill as you never have before:

I've heard people complain that the corn crops to grow the flex fuel is ruining the soil, but that seems like nothing compared to what's happening because of oil spills.

BOYCOTT BP products worldwide NOW! The exploitation and money making mentality has reached its limits! BP only "fears" that this "supergau" may cost them a years profit and they try to limit the costs of this "unpleasant" event. So here again they only count and think in numbers. They don't care about anything in the Gulf of Mexico or anywhere else in this world in the slightest but only see their profit! So, BOCOTT BP NOW, and think also about doing the same with other big brands like SHELL that do not differ a bit! At the same time get into ACTION and use much lesser your cars and anything that needs oil as basis. Use biofuels if you have to use your car. If YOU DO NOT TAKE ACTION who do think will?
LOVE and Blessings to everybody

deadly serious disaster! Thanks for this post. Someone should start a boycott on BP gasoline. Personally, I am not using it at all. On a recent trip from MI to Iowa we waited longer to gas up when BP was all available at an exit.

The fines should affect BP where it hurts corporate profits so that the market value of BP shares will go to near zero!!!

Hit polluters where it hurts...massive pollution deserves massive fines which are imposed and increased daily until the offending company resolves the problem...at this rate BP would cease to exist...a big win for the environment and common sense.

It will take time but I think it will hopefully recover.

Poor puppies. These evil people need to go to prison for setting out those traps.

"Satanism is anti-religion - not a religion." If so, what's wrong with that?

Trapping is so inhumane. It is about time they cancelled trapping in the lynx's habitat. The should shut…
