The Gulf oil disaster needs first person coverage and got it this week with a little help from the Ocean Futures Society:
The Ocean Futures Expedition Team discovered this massive oil slick just 24 miles off the coast of 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 Man o' War 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.
We need funding to keep our team in Louisiana. Please consider making a donation.
