GULF OF MEXICO : DISASTER CONTINUES













One year after the disaster in the Gulf of Mexico (780 million liters of oil spills at sea), oil and dead organic beings samples taken from seafunds and sea surface show no change. A study funded by British Petroleum (BP), submitted months ago to the Energy Department (USA), assure that microbes were working very fast. However, another study performed by Samantha Joye (University of Georgia), after examining 250 samples in 6.700 marine km square showed that pollution continued and that microbes had resolved only 10% of the total pollution, contradicting BP estimates Group, explained perhaps because the samples were taken elsewhere and at other times.

LA CATASTROFE CONTINUA

Un año después de la catástrofe ocurrida en el Golfo de Mexico (780 millones de litros de petróleo vertidos al mar), las muestras de petróleo y seres organicos muertos tomadas de los fondos y superficie marina, no muestran cambios. Un estudio financiado por British Petroleum (BP), presentado meses atrás al Energy Department (USA), aseguro que los microbios estaban trabajando muy rápido. No obstante, otro estudio realizado por Samantha Joye (University of Georgia), demostró tras examinar 250 muestras en 6,700 km cuadrados marinos, que la contaminación continuaba y que los microbios solo habian resuelto el 10% de la polucion total, contradiciendo los estimados del BP Group, explicable tal vez porque las muestras fueron tomadas en otros lugares y en otros tiempos.
