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

At 11 a.m. EST on Monday, 21 February, Live @ AAAS will host a live chat here with Samantha Joye, who has tracked the oil and gas released by BP's well. Joye will be available to discuss the role of microbes in digesting hydrocarbons and how oil has impacted coral and other life on the seafloor.

Submit your questions live on Monday or post them beforehand in the comments section below.

This is not new... locals here are resisting eating local seafood which is keeping the economy in the dumps and we constantly see oil clumps washing up in the beach. The disbursing chemical agents just made things worse allowing the oil to break into tiny particles which are now killing the Gulf population. The marshes are coated with oily remains... and BP wants everyone to think things are back to normal!

Why do we believe this huge conglomerates? They lie on a continual basis and destroy to make increased profits - companies like BP should be made accountable not only for the immediate damage but for the ongoing damage and should be forced to report to a 'Green" committee or body on an ongoing basis at all times that can and will monitor their practices and police them This disaster is absolutely and positively totally unacceptable and should be pursued on all avenues so that they do not get away with it!

Sad that no one is going to jail. Cops can kill an innocent and BP can destroy our oceans, but as soon as someone who is steeped in densely populated poverty steals or goes outside the "free" market to provide for themselves and their loved ones its a crime that cripples their life. We have a long way to go before we see real freedom.

It's not safe to eat out of the ocean anymore - becoming vegan will maybe help the species comeback if they ever do! We are killing the oceans as it is over fished and overpolluted. Thats why they kill the seals because they eat too much cod - I choose to give my portion to the animals that need it not me!

The Gulf will never be the same, anf there is nothing BP-or anyone else can do about it. Things may look okay on the surface, but that is a lie. The oil is still in the Gulf, and will be forever. When will we ever learn that oil and water don't mix?

Only the easily taken in believed any differently. Our government is so deeply entangles with oil in general and BP in particular, we'll never see teh end of it. The reason is war, our only real industry. One unfortunate by product of being partly governed by various foreign oil interests is that tit allows them to retard and/or destroy the progress of researching and marketing any real alternative energy or energy saving efforts. Expensive advertising and bribery as usual. We sit and watch the country deteriorating around us like the sheeple we have turned out to be.

No matter how hard they try, BP and Government agencies won't be able to stifle all of the evidence of the damage done. And no matter how hard others try, the public may never know the real extent of the damage. BP is going to spin this the best way they can, because they don't want to pay for their own failure. I hope that the regulators in charge step up and make them pay for what they've done, but I'm not going to hold my breath waiting. Anyone who does is going to be blue for a very long time!

Given the magnitude of the oil spill, it's probably too soon for anybody to have a good idea of the extent of both the short and long term damage done by it. That's why I should be wary of eating seafood which comes from the Gulf for at least a year..

With Hurricane Season soon approaching, if any head toward the Florida Panhandle, Louisiana, Mississippi, etc., there's going to be worse problems than "just" the hurricanes = it (they) would probably be whipping up the oil on the bottom & moving ashore anywhere & everywhere for decades to come.

BP oil is no different than any other big corporation -- they view on the superficial layer and don't consider the deleterious effects on the deeper layers (in this case the oceanic ecosystem). There's a lot of damage out there... it's going to take a lot longer than just a few years to fully recover.

Remember when Sarah Palin said that if this happened in ANWAR and it was underground that it wouldn't hurt anything as it was in the ground?

We are surrounded by idiots who are paid off by Big Oil and not only do we, the taxpayers/consumers get stuck with the cost of cleanup, subsides to big oil, and then pay for the end product, we are also losing our young people in lied for wars to protect the oil fields in foreign countries so that these to big to fail companies steal the resources from these foreign countries in the name of greed and profit.

To the Repug that apologized to BP because he claimed that Obama was shacking BP down for the clean-up monies that BP said they were going to put in the bank, did they ever put in the rest of what they promised? I doubt it. They will never have enough money to cover the damages they have caused in their deliberate race to drill more faster, regardless of the safety of the situation. BP and Haliburton need to be nailed to the wall and be made to pay for all the costs involved in this tragedy. But as they have paid off the corrupt politicians, they will hardly be given a tap on the hand.

It is not surprising that the damage to the Gulf is ongoing. What is surprising is how BP and their hired schill, under the guise of a government appointed neutral party Feinberg expect us to believe that everything is fine. I had suspicions about Feinberg from the beginning and he is living up to my suspicions. A month or so ago he stated that the 20 billion escrow fund would be enough to handle the personal claims and the environmental damages that BP was responsible for. Then we get wind of the fact that many peoples claims have not been covered, and health problems abound in the clean-up workers. Now he makes the ridiculous statement that the Gulf ecosystem will be fine by 2012. He is either completely bought and paid for, or full of sh_t. I tend to think that both statements are true. Any intelligent person knows that the damage that was so wantonly caused will take decades to diminish. In the process the ecosystem and the marine life that inhabits it has been and will be devastated for a long time coming. This whole catastrophe from day one has been inundated with lies and deceit, orchestrated by the criminal corporate elite of BP, and supported by the government and a whole cast of our elected officials. From Ken Salazar on down the line to our local representatives all their money grubbing hands are covered with BP oil and the payola that goes with it. The BP corporate elite are nothing more than a cast of leeches who only care about the massive profits that they make while sucking the life out of our earth and killing our living environment and all life connected to it. They wantonly sacrificed the lives of their own employees, caused a wildlife genocide that killed countless numbers of species, destroyed the Gulf ecosystem without a care, and devastated the livelihoods of the people of the Gulf Coast. Yet they skated away with their personal wealth , yachts and toys and did not even get a slap on the wrist. Our representatives stroked them and our government did not bring them to justice, insulting their dead employees and their families, the countless numbers of wildlife lives that were sacrificed, and all of us who watched in horror. I said it before, all responsible parties should be jailed for life, and their personal assets seized and given to the Gulf restoration process and the people affected including their employees that were laid off. Finally BP should be banned from doing business in US waters forever at minimum. In reality they should be closed down worldwide, but thats just my opinion for what its worth.

Screw BP and Arco (one of their minions)! and Exxon. In fact, are there any oil companies out there that give a hoot about the environment or what ever country they drill in's people? Will be so glad when we finally wake up and have honest to God, clean energy. Don't tell me with all the science and engineering majors graduating each year, that we can't come up with solutions. At the rate that we are cutting education, we may be "lucky" with graduates that can discover the wheel. Or fire.

It is one damn free for all with their damn butts in our faces, as if just flaunting their escape from responsibility. I hope God punishes all involved harshly, There are so many that are in positions of power and control who have no scruples or feelings of responsibility, Imagine the Secretary of the Interior who was involved in waiving the remote shut off switch in the BP leak is going to issue a permit to drill in the Artic. Salazar is as culpable as the rest o f them. Do not buy Mobile, BP, or Exxon gas it has been suggested. However, they sell gasoline under different names too don't they. We cannot seem to get accountability in America any more.

The gulf will never be the same no matter how much is effort is made to "clean it up" - it just can't be done. All we can do is stop drilling in water - period. When gasoline finally gets so expensive that we can't afford it - only then will we "really" begin to conserve and think about safe and enduring forms of alternative energy. But by then we'll have destroyed most of the beautiful things/places on this earth anyway - - -

You can all help a little bit, either by going to the Gulf and help cleanup, or by reducing our consumption.
Don't drive any more than necessary and walk or use a bike for short trips; buy a vehicle that is as fuel efficient as possible; switch off lights and appliances that you do not use, only use heater and Airco when it is necessary. Replace bulbs with energy efficient versions and so on.
There is hardly an impact on comfort and you may actually get healthier by walking and biking, so you gain more than just doing good for the environment and not sending dollars to unfriendly countries.

And knowong the that so many thousands of marine life and birds that have already suffered and died a horrible death - and there will be more for years to come. Because where is the oil supposed to go ? It will never be gone . And what has Bp done to compensate all the people who have lost their livilihoods ? Not just in the seafood industry - but in the tourism as well .Between Katrina and this - it just truly breaks my heart !

Common sense BP, why do you think our Creator places oil pockets in strategic locations with massive counter pressure from the earth. When you put a hole in an unstable area that is prone to movement, to get to the oil, and you penetrate the counter pressure areas put there to contain the oil, You are going to have a disaster. And to try to make us believe it will go away in a couple of years. Are you out of your mind. Oil and the chemicals you used to try to passify the general population is enough to contaminate and kill for decades. I hope other oil companies learn from this.....just use common sense, think about it before you cause it, there are areas you need to not drill! And ocean areas are one of them.

I think the jury is still out on this spill and its impact on the region. I myself, do not feel comfortable eating seafood yet. We keep hearing about how safe it is to eat, but I have my doubts. The amount of oil that escaped into the environment and the amount of chemicals used to disperse it concern me. I would have rather had all of the oil rise to the surface then to have spread all over the Gulf with that chemical they used. The fact that the EPA even gave the green light for the use of the dispersant is troubling to me.

It's about time someone got to the bottom of this. I was a little skeptical that all of this oil would just magically disappear. Hopefully, this gets rectified soon. Thanks for sharing this, it was a long and informative article.

Thank You Anna for the post. This is so sickening to see. I had said from the beginning to never let BP off the hook.
So they think by 2012 clean up will be done????? Done a big maybe but over...years, and years unfortunately.
