BP Spill Remains Stuck on Bottom

Date: 1/2/2011

Oil from the BP spill remains stuck on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico,
according to a top scientists video and slides that she says
demonstrate the oil isnt degrading and has decimated life on parts of
the sea floor. That report is at odds with a recent report by the BP
spill compensation czar that said nearly all will be well by 2012. At a
science conference in Washington marine scientist Samantha Joye of the
University of Georgia aired early results of her December submarine
dives around the BP spill site. She went to places she had visited in
the summer and expected the oil and residue from oil-munching microbes
would be gone by then. It wasnt.
