Deepwater site still leaking, fish have tumors, shrimp with no eyes ~ did BP kill the Gulf?

Longtime seafood businessman says he’s closing shop:

Oil expert Matt Simmons (2 weeks before his untimely death while relaxing in his hot tub) says BP killed the Gulf of Mexico:

Comment from one of our readers:

Today is Thursday September 29, 2011. A friend of mine just returned from Venice, Louisiana on a fact finding mission. He spent 2 days there and talked to dozens of fishermen and BP contractors and Coast Guard personnel and there is alot of oil at the Deepwater Horizon-Macondo well site. It is not a sheen, It is several inches thick in some spots. A chemical analysis has confirmed it is Macondo oil.There is alot of activity in Venice and resources are being ramped up.
Word is that geological formation above oil deposit is unstable and oil is leaking from fissures around wellhead. All sealife on ocean bottom is dead according to Woods Hole Oceanograpic Institute in 30+ mile radius from site and Corexit dispersant is present in large amounts. According to Sergio Alex Villalobos who is a toxicologist for Nalco, the company that makes Corexit,”Once It’s mixed with oil,that’s where you get the most impact, that’s were you see most of the toxicity”.
He was quoted in the September 2010 issue of Scientific American magazine on page 26. There are alot of sick people that worked on the initial oil spill cleanup and residents in many coastal towns and cities that are sick. This is the second inning of a long nightmare and anyone who signed a release to get a ‘quickpay’ from BP and their minion Fienberg should hire a lawyer asap and hope they can get their release annulled. BP top brass are sociopaths… “
