FIVE YEARS ON: STUDY FINDS MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF OIL FROM DEEPWATER HORIZON DISASTER BURIED IN GULF OF MEXICO. Five years after BP’s failed Deepwater Horizon drill rig spewed 200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, a significant amount of that oil remains buried in seafloor sediments. A new study by a Florida State University researcher estimates that about 6 to 10 million gallons of oil are still there, perhaps decomposing slowly, but probably affecting Gulf ecosystems. “This is going to affect the Gulf for years to come,” said researcher Jeff Chanton. “Fish will likely ingest contaminants because worms ingest the sediment, and fish eat the worms. It’s a conduit for contamination into the food web,” he said sediments http://summitcountyvoice.com/2015/01/30/study-finds-massive-amounts-of-oil-from-deepwater-horizon-disaster-buried-in-gulf-of-mexico-sediments/

SCIENTISTS DISCOVER HUGE 'BATHTUB RING' OF OIL ON SEA FLOOR FROM BP SPILL Scientists revealed more damage from the BP oil spill in the Gulf Coast. And Kara Lankford, director of Ocean Conservancy’s Gulf Restoration, slammed BP for attempting to downplay the spill's effects on the area's ecosystem. The study by David Valentine, the chief scientist on the federal damage assessment research ships, estimates that about 10 million gallons of oil coagulated on the floor of the Gulf of Mexico around the damaged Deepwater Horizons oil rig. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/10/27/gulf-oil-spill-bathtub-ring_n_6056348.html


Project World Awareness, September 07, 2014
 ▶  COREXIT DISPERSENT USED WITH BP DEEPWATER HORIZON OIL DISASTER: LIFE ON THIS EARTH JUST CHANGED ... THE NORTH ATLANTIC CURRENT IS GONE - 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.

       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). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zGFvzMMO9w

SCIENTIST ALARMED AT SEA TURTLE'S SUDDEN DECLINE IN GULF. Scientific research presented on the Kemp's ridley raised the possibility that the 2010 BP oil spill, the largest in U.S. history, might have contributed to the declines of sea turtle nests in 2013 and 2014, which have alarmed scientists. [...] experts outlined other factors that may be harming the turtles, such as a die-off of the creatures the turtles eat, expanding dead zones where oxygen is so scant that almost nothing can survive, pesticide runoff and other chemicals dumped in the Gulf.  http://www.chron.com/news/science-environment/article/Signs-grow-of-oil-spill-effect-on-turtles-5903833.php

                           COREXIT: EXXON VALDEZ OIL SPILL

The dispersant Corexit 9580 was considered and tried but was not used for shore clean-up due largely to concerns about toxicity. According to the booklet Shoreline Treatment Techniques published in 1993 by the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, while it effectively assisted in clean-up, "It had not been tested, scientific data on its toxicity were either thin or incomplete, and it had operational problems. In addition, public acceptance of a new, widespread chemical treatment was lacking. To landowners, fishing groups, and conservation organizations, the idea of dumping chemicals on hundreds of miles of shorelines that had just been oiled seemed much too risky - especially when there were other alternatives."

According to a report by David Kirby for TakePart, the main component of the Corexit formulation used during cleanup, 2-butoxyethanol, was identified as "one of the agents that caused liver, kidney, lung, nervous system, and blood disorders among cleanup crews in Alaska following the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill.

Samantha Groen's curator insight, February 4, 2015 11:43 AM

BP was banned from preforming any work in the US in 2012 and now the suspension has been lifted. They are back in the oil game. They had to pay a $4.5 billion fine, admit to lying about the damages, plead guilty, and now they are back in business. Their incident caused the death of 11 workers and the destruction of the Gulf of Mexico. Their attempts to make it better were pathetic. It is interesting how people can put a dollar value to the damage and death of people and a huge mass of water and fish population.

 

This was a huge example of poor corporate social responsibility and the damages are still taking its toll. Reading about the research on how the fish and sea creatures are still being affected 5 years later. The response that the BP representatives are giving in respect to the research on how the fish's hearts are being affected just shows that they are still not practicing good corporate social responsibility and it is sad to see how little a company will take care for their mistakes and the world they live in.

http://conservationmagazine.org/2009/04/taming-the-blue-frontier/


Ten thousand years ago, humans made the shift on land from hunting and gathering to farming. Now the same transformation is taking place at sea....


   Many of today’s coastal fish farms have decimated habitat and spread disease into local fish populations. Making matters worse, fish farms represent a net drain on populations of wild fish, which are often caught just so they can be ground into feed for salmon and other species.

▶ FACTORY FARMED SALMON INFECTING TENS OF MILLIONS WITH DEADLY PRV VIRUS - SALMON POPULATIONS COLLAPSE


Tens of millions of British Columbia's wild salmon dying in uncontrollable outbreak.


The escalating battle to protect Pacific wild salmon from a Norwegian virus.


THIRTY MILLION ATLANTIC SALMON were imported into B.C. from Norway, before anyone knew that the virus existed.  


In 2017, we reported that 94 percent of farm salmon in markets are infected and that the virus has spread coastwide. But it is significantly more prevalent in wild salmon caught near salmon farms.


Wild Chinook near these farms are in collapse despite fishing closures. The oddly yellow Chinooks died slowly and painfully, releasing the virus into the surrounding waters

It uses the term ‘bioengineered’ instead of the more commonly used ‘genetically modified’ or ‘genetically engineered’, and allows ‘bioengineered’ ingredients to be disclosed in several different ways: in text, a symbol, a digital link printed on packaging, or text message.

 -▶  VIRUS-LADEN FARMED SALMON

- FOI reveals over half of samples test positive for Piscine Reovirus


"Unsuspecting shoppers are getting more than they bargain for when buying farmed salmon," said Don Staniford, Director of Scottish Salmon Watch and author of 'The State of Scottish
Salmon Farming'. "Hidden extras lurking in Scottish salmon include Piscine Reovirus:
- Cardiomyopathy Syndrome, Amoebic Gill Disease, Infectious Pancreatic Necrosis and a host of nasty viruses, pathogens and diseases.


If consumers realised that over half of all farmed salmon tested was laden with Piscine Reovirus they would avoid it like the plague. Far from being 'healthy', Scottish salmon is a battery farmed, virus-ridden, disease hell."

WATCH:


Scientists are calling it a crisis. Unprecedented numbers of sea lice are being found on vulnerable young wild salmon smolts in the Clayoquot Sound. Numbers so high, they’re likely to be lethal for a large part of next generation of a species that’s already struggling. Kori Sidaway has more.

 ▶ INSANITY - CATCH WILD FISH TO FEED FARMED FISH!
 WILD PACIFIC MACKEREL STOCKS THAT FEED FARMED SALMON IN MASSIVE DECLINE.


Farmed salmon, that ubiquitous pink fish decorated with ribbons of fat, can thank the forage fish of the southern Pacific ocean – like anchovy and jack mackerel – for their calorie-rich diet. Indeed, more than 5 pounds of jack mackerel typically can go towards raising one pound of farmed salmon. But that food supply – and the ocean ecosystem that supports it — may be in peril, according to a new report by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. According to scientists the ICIJ spoke to, "supertrawler" fishing vessels from Asia, Europe and Latin America have contributed to a 63 percent decline in jack mackerel stocks since 2006. At the current rate of overfishing, the world's stock of jack mackerel, which is largely located off the coast of Chile, could collapse soon.

-▶ AQUA FARMS CRAM FISH INTO SMALL SPACES (#CAFOs)


Scottish fish farmers have been forced to use record amounts of highly toxic pesticides to combat underwater parasites that prey on salmon, raising fears of significant damage to the marine environment.


The chemicals used are highly toxic to many marine species, especially crustaceans. The treatments use organophosphates, which attack the nervous system of sea lice and teflubenzuron, which interferes with their ability to grow shells. The chemicals used are highly toxic to many marine species, especially crustaceans.....

-▶  The film explores the high cost—ecological, financial and cultural—of our mistaken belief that engineered solutions can make up for habitat destruction.

GENETICALLY MODIFIED SALMON - A FAST GROWING HYPE 


"The genetic modification is cruel and raises serious ethical concerns as the GM salmon suffers from deformities and health problems. Moreover, it is unnecessary to increase the growth rate. The most important area in fish breeding is to focus on getting healthy animals, the quality of meat and animal welfare."

▶ CAN FARMED FISH FEED THE WORLD WITHOUT DESTROYING THE ENVIRONMENT.


 But large-scale aquaculture can have significant environmental consequences. It can take a lot of wild fish to feed certain farmed fish. And when tons of fish are crowded together, they create a lot of waste, which can pollute the ocean. Fish farms can also be breeding grounds for disease. Plus, shrimp farming in Indonesia is at least partly responsible for the region's declining mangrove forests.

OCEANS ACIDIFYING FAST: Rapidly Rising CO2 causing potential catastrophe | OUR OCEANS NEED US | Scoop.it

 

 

Since the industrial revolution began, we have released 2 trillion tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere, and about one-third of it went into the ocean. We initially thought that the ocean taking up CO2 was a good thing – because it took it out of the atmosphere. Unfortunately, we were wrong.  There has been a 30% increase in the acidity of the ocean since 1700, and we now expect that by 2100, it will have become a 100% increase. This constitutes a rate of change in ocean chemistry that is 10 times anything scientists can document over the last 50 million years

ANIMALS DISSOLVING DUE TO CARBON EMISSIONS. Marine snails, also known as sea butterflies, are dissolving in the Southern Seas due to anthropogenic carbon emissions, according to a new study in Nature GeoScience. Scientists have discovered that the snail's shells are being corroded away as pH levels in the ocean drop due to carbon emissions, a phenomenon known as ocean acidification. The snails in question, Limacina helicina antarctica, play a vital role in the food chain, as prey for plankton, fish, birds, and even whales. http://news.mongabay.com/2012/1203-hance-ocean-acidification-dissolving-snails.html

Jose's curator insight, March 20, 2014 12:22 PM

When reading this article i find it amazing what is going on around the world. Places like Antarctica are changing dramatically in ways people are not in control of. What used to be an icy and colder places is now deteriorating and melting. I find it scary in a way because what else is going to change as the years go by. What are the next generation of people going to be apart of or get to witnesses now that many places and things are coming closer to be extinct.
