The BP Oil Spill is Tragically Affecting Wildlife in the Gulf of Mexico… Whales, Birds, Dolphins – Nothing is Being Spared
John L. Wathen defied BP “Laws” by flying his plane over the Gulf BP Oil Spill to video the affects of the disaster. This video provides an aerial view of the oil spill. By going against BP’s rules and flying his plane over the disaster, Mr. Wathen is providing the world with the truth about the BP Oil Spill… This is a human disaster on a scale never before seen by Americans. The video shows lots of things that BP would rather you not see…
(The video is 9 minutes, 55 seconds long. If you don’t have time to watch the whole video, please at least skip down to some of the still shots below.)
Watch this video for a rude awakening regarding the real effects of the BP Oil Spill.
This image from the video shows a whale surfacing in the midst of the oil. On the video, the videographer says “along his back we could see red patches of crude as though he had been basted for broiling.”
A patch of oil in the mouth of Mobile Bay. Less than two miles off the coast of Gulf Shores, Alabama.
Dark pink masses of oil just 1.2 miles off the coast of Alabama.
23 miles off the coast. The oil buildup is the worst yet, becoming a deep purple color and engulfing everything in its path.
Boats on the surface of the BP oil spill look tiny in comparison to the massive oil spill.
Nothing can live in these rainbows of oily death that cover the entire horizon.
Clouds of thick, toxic smoke erupt uncontrollably out of the ocean. This can’t be good for birds passing over head or the atmosphere in general. Something must be done to control this situation.
From 1.2 miles off the beach of Gulf Shores, Alabama to the ground zero sight of the oil spill – some 90 miles away – there isn’t a single square inch of ocean not covered in oil.
This image shows a rigg that was brought-in to burn crude oil off the bottom of the ocean.
Tiny skimmers collecting oil from the surface of the BP Oil Spill site.
This boat could be used to drill a new “relief well” – but it is burning oil instead.
Burning off all this oil from the spill is releasing tons of toxins into the air.
A pod of 36 dolphins trying to escape the BP Oil Spill disaster.
Pod of 18 dolphins trudging through the oil.
Mr. Wathen describes this pod of dolphins found later as “…some already dead, some in their death throws.”
From the same pod of dolphins as above, Mr. Wathen describes this image as though the dolphins that were still alive were peaking out of the water, holding their heads up to see the fire.
Patches of oil already appearing on the shores of outlying beach islands.
Birds trying to find resting places not covered in oil.
The below quote is from John L. Wathen, the person who filmed this video…
“This was the most emotionally disturbing video I have ever done! A flight over the BP Slick Source where I saw at least 100 Dolphins in the oil, some dying. I also photographed a Sperm Whale covered in oil all around it’s blow hole. Please spread this around the world. Send me any links to places it gets posted so I can follow. I want to piss off the world. Who will answer for these gentle creatures?”
