WTF? anyone know about this, just crazy what these companies get away with

 

The oil has been leaking for 14 years.

A sheen of oil can still be seen on the surface above the site.

The new study estimates as much as 4,500 gallons of oil per day could be seeping from the site.

A new federal study of oil that's been seeping into the Gulf of Mexico from a platform toppled by Hurricane Ivan more than 14 years ago confirms that the spill is bigger than what the energy company who owns the platform has claimed.

The platform, 12 miles off the coast of Louisiana, fell over after an underwater mudslide triggered by the hurricane on Sept. 15, 2004.

Between that and the huge dead zone in the northern section of the gulf plus add the garbage that’s going on here in SWFL, the gulf will be a waste land soon. We now have more fecal matter bacteria in the area of Fort Myers added to what is already in the Estero bay. 

 

This place  is up for a rude awakening some day.

Hasn’t there been an underground coal fire burning in some PA town for 50+ years? Think it’s Centralia. 

Yep, and it’s gonna burn for 100 more, I think

Watched a documentary last year about it. Whole town had to pack up and leave. Crazy.
