BP Gulf Oil Spill Is Already In Gulf Stream And May Hit North Carolina Beaches Any Day
by Alexander Higgins
As I pointed out in my previous post BP has refused to allow scientists to confirm the origin of an oil plume that was found in the Gulf Stream off the coast of the Florida Keys.
That story was published on June 9th by the St. Petersburg Times which at the time of this post is 7 days ago.
Based on that date oil spill projections show that the the oil already in the Gulf Stream could start washing up on the North Carolina shore any day.
It is entirely possible that by following the flow of the Gulf stream that the oil from the spill could bypass the beaches of the east coast of Florida Georgia and South Carolina and hit North Carolina first.
Let’s review some satellite images and a simulation of the path of the spill.
