The catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico continues

If you want to know the truth about what is happening in the Gulf of Mexico follow the groundbreaking reports from journalist Dahr Jamail and photographer Erika Blumfield who have been documenting the catastrophe as it unfolds.

Their most recent report, which can be read here, makes a mockery of claims by the Obama administration and BP that the majority of the oil has been cleaned up and the situation is returning to normal in the Gulf.

Jamail writes:

Thousands of lives along the Gulf Coast are being devastated by this disaster. This is merely the beginning of yet another toxic epoch for the Gulf of Mexico, all the humans that live along the coast, and all the marine life and wildlife that make their homes here.

What have we done? How has it come to this? Where do we go from here?
