When nearly 170 cattle were seized from the property of William Holdner and Jane Baum in summer 2012, many were so thin that their ribs were protruding, and some were so malnourished they could barely stand.

STUDY CONFIRMS WORST FEARS: MASSIVE BP OIL SPILL HARMED OCEAN ECO SYSTEMS: In testing, scientists found that exposure to oil caused defects in vulnerable species. After the massive 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill, concerns mounted about the quality of oysters, shrimp, and other seafood exposed to the slick in the Gulf of Mexico, but scientists say they've observed some of the worst effects in the tiniest victims: fish eggs.... Researchers maintain that severely affected fish with heart failure or deformed jaws, two known defects, likely died after hatching. Surviving fish that suffered only mild effects showed permanent changes in their heart shape that would reduce swimming performance later in life—which can be a major deficit for a fish dodging a harpoon or a bigger fish predator. http://www.takepart.com/article/2014/03/25/bp-oil-spill-causes-tuna-heart-defects
Project World Awareness, September 07, 2014 ▶ LIFE ON THIS EARTH JUST CHANGED ... THE NORTH ATLANTIC CURRENT IS GONE -- DUE TO THE COREXIT USED WITH BP DEEPWATER HORIZON OIL DISASTER. The entire ‘river of warm water’ that flows from the Caribbean to the edges of Western Europe is dying due to the Corexit that the Obama Administration allowed BP to use to hide the scale of the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Disaster. The approximately two million gallons of Corexit, plus several million gallons of other dispersants, have caused the over two hundred million gallons of crude oil, that has gushed for months from the BP wellhead and nearby sites, to mostly sink to the bottom of the ocean. This has helped to effectively hide much of the oil, with the hopes that BP can seriously reduce the mandated federal fines from the oil disaster. However, there is no current way to effectively ‘clean up’ the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico, which is about half covered in crude oil. Additionally, the oil has flowed up the East Coast of America and into the North Atlantic Ocean. It is likely, based on numerous reports, that the oil is still flowing in massive amounts from multiple places on the seabed floor. This effectively means, that even if we had the technology in place to somehow clean up the free flowing thick crude oil deep in the ocean, it would likely not be enough to reverse the damage to the Thermohaline Circulation System in the Atlantic Ocean. http://www.projectworldawareness.com/2010/09/life-on-this-earth-just-changed-the-north-atlantic-current-is-gone/
BBC DOCUMENTARY (45:02) PROFIT POLLUTION AND DECEPTION BP AND THE OIL SPILL
Published on Nov 1, 2013
The Deepwater Horizon oil spill (also referred to as the BP oil spill, the BP oil disaster, the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, and the Macondo blowout) began on 20 April 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico on the BP-operated Macondo Prospect. It claimed eleven lives and is considered the largest accidental marine oil spill in the history of the petroleum industry, an estimated 8% to 31% larger in volume than the previously largest, the Ixtoc I oil spill. Following the explosion and sinking of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, a sea-floor oil gusher flowed for 87 days, until it was capped on 15 July 2010. The total discharge has been estimated at 4.9 million barrels (210 million US gal; 780,000 m3).

▶ DOLPHINS ARE DYING IN DROVES AND SCIENTISTS CAN'T STOP IT
What makes so many deaths disturbing, he said, is that dolphins are regarded as "sentinels for ocean and human health," not unlike canaries in a coal mine.
Dolphins are dying all around Florida and scientists don't know how to stop it.The die-offs of bottlenose dolphins are going on in three different places, and appear to be from more than one cause. Although dolphins are not an endangered species, the loss of so many all at once is clearly bad news, scientists say... http://www.tampabay.com/news/environment/wildlife/dolphins-dying-in-droves-and-scientists-cant-stop-it/2152860\
