New Study: Deepwater Horizon Still Leaking Oil

Green Lifestyle  (tags: environment, habitat, pollution )

- 1913 days ago -
It's been over three years since the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, triggering the worst oil spill in US history. While the well was officially sealed in the summer of 2010, observers have been spotting oil sheens on the water

Yes it is still leaking and what the Oil has not killed was finished off by the Corexit dispersant. It was and is 100% the fault of BP and the Gulf is Dead. My question is, "where is the outrage"?

Oh, no, this can't be - BP has all these ads on tv telling us how they've cleaned everything up and all is well now. And, of course, we know they wouldn't like LIE to us, now would they? My sarcasm is mixed with outrage, Kit, because I doubt many people know this even yet....

The outrage certainly is not in the legislature.

I've read before about the continuous leaking, yet govt keeps giving new drilling permits, - I wonder does anybody care at all?

"New Study"? Really? .... Should have been continual monthly oversigh and reportt, not from the "totally committed" company itself, but from the government stewards in charge-- in, througn and beyond the lawsui money settlements and dispersements -- from beginning to the required end, LEAK-FREE, which can never repair the overall damage inflicted there. .

Even if the oil leak was stopped it will continue to wash up for years to come. Its not going to magically disapear.

As long as people want to drive cars, they'll be drilling for oil.
We could stop driving cars................?

Or they could put more regulations on drilling and send the price way up...

What IS the solution?

I don't understand why our government doesn't require BP to correct the problem. All of their permits should be suspended until the leak is stopped.

It looks like Mother Earth is bleeding. Terrible.

Noted with extreme sadness. Will it ever stop? (rhetorical)

I hope the fine that BP got is going to be enough to fix the continuing damage.

Use less oil - go car-free if you can ...

Thanks for the info, Cher. BP should've been charged with the murder of those killed that day. Why does this corporation continue to exist? So, besides the banks being too big to fail & too big to jail, these dirty energy companies are now being treated exactly the same. Doesn't seem like that long ago that monopolies were outlawed here in the U.S. I don't know what it will take to end this, but we must.
