Oil glistens on the Gulf of Mexico in late spring 2010, over a month after the Deepwater Horizon spill began. The photo was taken from a research vessel that scientists used to studied methane consumption by microbes in the ocean. The photo shows an area roughly 3 meters on a side.

Much of the methane released by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon blowout hung around until the end of that year. In a new study of data collected in the months after the spill, scientists report that the numbers of methane-munching microbes plummeted while the gas was still abundant. The result contradicts an earlier report, which suggested that the bacteria rapidly got rid of the seawater’s methane. (1)

In the picture one can see the spill’s aftereffects: Oil glistens on the Gulf of Mexico in late spring 2010, over a month after the Deepwater Horizon spill began.

Doing nothing. (Not intelligently…)

It is actually amazing if you think about it.

After the “greatest ecological catastrophes of all time” and the unimaginable result of the “oil spill” cleaning itself (!), scientists are now trying to convince us that the disaster was indeed great! Long AFTER the disaster has passed over, they try to make us understand that what the whole world saw was not like… what we saw.

Science, money and politics: An unholy bond.

Mark my words.

In a few years they will have “scientific” papers “proving” that the oil spill never went away!

Science is the best tool of politics.

Given a good lab and some in depth analysis, you can prove that even a giant purple elephant was spilled into the Gulf along with the “invisible” oil…
