Gulf Oil Refuses to Stay Hidden Underwater
BP and the government decided that millions of gallons of dispersants should be dumped into the Gulf to sink and hide the oil.
They succeeded in sinking it. As ABC, CBS and NPR note, huge quantities of oil are blanketing the ocean floor, killing virtually all of the sealife which lives there.
And giant new underwater plumes have been found in the water column itself.
But the oil is not staying underwater.
Oil is suddenly emerging in many parts of the Gulf.
