Company Seals Gas Well Leak off Louisiana Coast | Weather Underground

Company Seals Gas Well Leak off Louisiana Coast | Weather Underground.

 

Last week I was in Louisiana at a workshop on the Gulf of Mexico Restoration.    There it is common to know they daily have oil leaks/spills.   Some may be small and alone seem insignificant but the small amounts here and there around the Gulf and up the Mississippi river combined would be a much bigger problem.

It is my feeling that the small incidents that are common are prof that  the oil industries need to have a no tolerance for oil spill seepage or incidents.   Until that time it is a major mistake for us to continue to permit additional locations, that could add to more disasters to our ecosystem.

I know the majority of the population does not perceive a problem.   They don’t eat seafood,  or depend on the products for their lively hood,  but in the end the dead zones along our coast are proof that humans are having a devastating impact on our planet.
