Oil Arrives In Louisiana; Defense Booms Inadequate

eldavojohn writes “People in mainland Louisiana are seeing the beginnings of the oil’s full effects on wildlife in the area. Sticky rust colored oil covers the reeds like a latex paint indicating that the efforts to lay miles of floating booms to keep it away from the fragile marshes are useless. They are experiencing what the Plaquemines (mouth of Mississippi River) saw last week and it now appears that their defenses were inadequate. Only time will tell how much more worse it can get as BP still scrambles for a solution. NPR also ran a story critical of Obama’s ‘scientific approach’ that he promised to use in office and how well it’s being applied and holding up during this crisis.”
