Damn. I’m trying to wrap my mind around this turn of events, but honestly, a lot of us knew it would start happening.
This is a video put out by CNN that is a must watch. There is a “10-fold increase” in the number of dolphins dying in the months of January and February. The majority of them are calves or baby dolphins. They are dying soon after they are born, according to this video. They are also being found everywhere from Mississippi to Florida.What you guys need to understand is that this is the first dolphin birthing season since the oil spill. The dolphins being born right now were conceived around February, March and April of last year. Dolphins have an 11 – 12 month gestation period. Think about it for a minute. If you or someone you knew was pregnant and their doctor asked them to bathe with Raid, RoundUp, and Pool Chemicals for their entire pregnancy…would there be the chance of a stillbirth or a miscarriage? Absolutely. Well, this is exactly what is happening with the dolphins. The Corexit that these mama dolphins have been living in for a year has claimed the lives of their children.
However, the federal government is trying (for the millionth time) to blame this on cold water or red tide. I’ve been in the gulf for many years and I can tell you that I’ve been around for algae blooms, red tide and cold snaps. This is unprecedented. Here is a great article from Denise Rednour who wrote about the fact that even though samples of the dead dolphins are being taken, they aren’t being reviewed by the federal government because they are part of an “ongoing criminal investigation against BP”. Oh really? The feds want us to believe that they are really going to prosecute BP for some dolphin deaths? No, what they are trying to do is keep a lid on the continuing shit storm that is the BP oil spill in the gulf.
What I want (and most of us, I believe also want) is transparency. We want to know what the hell is really going on in our backyards. We want the truth. Do we get the truth? No, we get a pack of lies, a pack of false truths. Have you seen this video of a former BP cleanup worker who is struggling with Corexit poisoning? It’s very intense and shows the physical effects of what Corexit is doing.
This woman, Lisa Nelson of Orange Beach, Alabama passed away on March 7, 2011. This is a video journal of her battle with Corexit poisoning before her death.
This isn’t propaganda, folks. People and animals are dying. The effects of Corexit have been kept underground for too long and it needs to stop. Many of us have been out here talking about Corexit for almost a year and nothing is still being done to help the victims of the oil spill.
President Obama, please pull your head out of your ass and realize that this oil spill is larger than you, it’s larger than your government, it’s larger than all of us. The gulf needs transparency about the affects of Corexit and we need qualified medical personnel in the gulf to help.
