OMG !!!!! NEW FOOTAGE !!!!!!!!!!! UNDERWATER OIL !!!!!!!!!!!!! 15-25 feet thick under the surface
Dear God, help us.

This is what dispersants do to oil, and it ain't pretty.
This footage is takes 24 miles off of the Louisiana coast.



Dive under water with the Ocean Futures Team as they become the first to dive in and document the oil covered waters off the coast of Louisiana.

The Ocean Futures Expedition Team discovered this massive oil slick just 24 miles off the coast of Venice, Louisiana. The oil stretched as far as the eye could see and down to about 15 to 25 feet deep. Amongst the muck swims a Portuguese Man 'o War (which resembles a jellyfish but is actually a siphonophore) and a small fish that swims alongside for protection. The Team is encountering many floating globs of rust colored oil, dark black fresh crude and oily surfaces as they explore the coast.

It blocks out the sun light and oxygen.
There will be massive death.
Revelation 1:7 "Behold, He comes with clouds; and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, Amen."

Zechariah 12:10 "And I will pour on the house of David, and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look on Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for Him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn."

God help us is right.

As MJ said in his Earth Song:

What have we done to the world?
Look what we've done.
What about all the peace,
That you pledge your only son?
What about flowering fields?
Is there a time?
What about all the dreams,
That you said was yours and mine?

Did you ever stop to notice,
All the children dead from war?
Did you ever stop to notice,
This crying Earth its weeping shores?

And 15-25 feet thick. In the beginning of the video, before they go underwater, you can see the oil slick. THIS IS BELOW the slick, which proves that what we see on the surface is a fraction of the true extent of the oil in the water.

I can't imagine any creature living under the water who had the misfortune to swim through one of these underwater oil plumes would survive for long.

Very, very sad.

At this point, I take great comfort in the fact that BP is experimenting with the *unprecedented* use of 600,000+ gallons of toxic underwater dispersant. (Yes, I'm being sarcastic)

So, when I look at that video and see those oil droplets, all I can think about is that it's even more toxic than it looks because of the dispersant.

Found the dense green water under the oil even more troubling. Indicates eutrophication, algal bloom and resulting fish kill are on the near horizon. Basically a dead zone.

Yeah, its a little late for that, huh... It is all political/public relations damage control now.

I have family and friends that live in the Tampa area. The entire west coast of Florida is beautiful. The further south you go, the whiter the sands. It is difficult to grasp the situation, it is so immense, when being disconnected from it.

Crude oil degradation by microorganisms isolated from the marine environment

Funded by:
North Carolina Board of Science and Technology; Grant Number: GB 23815

Abstract

The utilization of crude oil by microorganisms isolated from marine environments was investigated. Enrichment procedures for isolating crude oil degrading organisms were carried out using samples of mud collected among the estuaries and along the coast of North Carolina. The basal medium was seawater supplemented with nitrogen and phosphate. The fungi isolated under these conditions utilized crude oil more effectively than did the bacteria and several oil utilizing fungi were isolated in pure culture. Among the fungi selected were strains of Cunninghamella etegans, Aspergillus versicolor, Cephalosporium acremonium, and a Penicillium sp. These fungi utilized a wide variety of hydrocarbon substrates as a source of carbon and energy. All grew on a mineral salts medium with no requirement for seawater.

The amount of crude oil utilized by growing fungi was determined. The results suggested that of the fungi isolated C. elegans and the Penicillum sp. were most effective in degrading crude oil. When paraffin base crude oil was added to the seawater basal salts medium (0.2% v/v) and inoculated with C. elegans over 90% of the oil was assimilated after 5 days growth. Less than one-half of this amount of asphalt base crude oil was utilized. The optimum temperature for growth of fungi that utilized crude oil differed but all grew at temperatures between 15 and 24 °C. Significant growth of the fungi on crude oil did not occur unless the seawater was supplemented with a source of nitrogen and phosphorus. The results of this study suggested that fungi can effectively assimilate crude oil and that paraffin base crude is more readily degraded than the asphalt base crude oil.
