In an effort to show the world the harm BP has inflicted on the Gulf of Mexico, Gulf Coast Residents have banded together to create a comprehensive presentation of images from the beaches as they are right now. I repeat, these are NOT images from 2010 immediately after the spill. These images were taken during the past few weeks and months, at a time when BP has engaged in an aggressive, multi-million dollar advertising campaign which proclaims to the country that Gulf beaches are clean, safe, and open for business. Why haven't they used this money to clean up their mess instead?
