< class="art-postheader">The Oil is Still There, New Raw Video Shows

I happened across the Stuart Smith blog today and saw an article that was just too good not to share.  It begins thus:

BP and its boosters say we dodged a bullet. They beat their chests and shout from the treetops that the 200-million-gallon spill off Louisiana’s coast didn’t break the back of the Gulf like all the “doomsdayers” said it would. They talk of safe seafood and booming Gulf tourism. They tell us the oil is gone, that it’s time to move on. In fact, according to BP, the Gulf has made such an unexpectedly fast recovery that “future loss” claims to victims of the spill should be shut down. No more damage so no more damage claims, or so argues BP’s legal team on into the night. Read the full article.

The article then goes on to prove that without a doubt, none of what BP has said is true. Most startling is the raw video footage, taken on July 11, 2011 showing oil soaked beaches and a devastated coast line. Because the video was created with embed permissions on YouTube, I’ll reproduce it for you here:

According to Attorney Stuart Smith’s post, oil may still be leaking from the Macondo blowout.

I encourage you to hop on over to Stuart’s blog, especially if you or your loved ones have been harmed by the devastation in the Gulf. Stuart may be able to help you.

Finally, I think it’s important to say that this post was not requested, endorsed or paid for by Stuart Smith in any way. He’s never heard of me. But since I used to work for a firm that does the same type of litigation he does, I would assume he’s doing good work. I write this post to raise awareness about a problem that still exists, and to help those who have been injured by this disaster find help.
