Another Group Takes Issue With Administration’s Oil Spill Report

A community group in the Gulf of Mexico is the latest organization to take issue with the Obama administration’s rosy assessment of the status of the Gulf oil spill cleanup.

The Gulf Coast Fund, which was founded after Hurricane Katrina to support grassroots organizations in the region, said today “over 53 million gallons of oil are currently spread over the coastal areas and are washing ashore in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and the Florida panhandle.” That’s out of a total of 172 million gallons that were spilled into the Gulf.

Wilma Subra, a scientist and Gulf Coast Fund adviser, said in a statement:

Just because the oil is no longer on the surface, it does not indicate that the area is healthy. We’ve received reports from local residents all along the coast who continue to see oil on and off shore, as well as reports of hundreds of dead fish, crabs, birds, dolphins, and other sea life.

The group’s findings come days after the University of Georgia published a report finding that “up to 79 percent of the oil released into the Gulf of Mexico from the Deepwater Horizon well has not been recovered and remains a threat to the ecosystem.”

Fish are visible members of aquatic communities that are vulnerable to PAH contamination.Epidemiologic evidence on the relationship between polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and cancer needs to be reviewed! You can't taste PAH.

Shellfish beds in Massachusetts were closed for up to eight years after the 2003 oil spill. The fish around Buzzards Bay passed the PAH test but tasted like old rubber tires. You are what you eat!

On April 27, 2003, Bouchard Barge 120 hit an obstacle in Buzzards Bay, creating a 12-foot rupture in its hull and discharging an estimated 98,000 gallons of No. 6 oil. The oil is known to have affected an estimated 90 miles of shoreline, numerous bird species, and recreational use of the bay, such as shell fishing and boating.
