Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico
« on: May 19, 2010, 05:11:39 PM »
The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is a damn shame and disgusting, but the good news is that it hasn't affected any of the Florida Beaches on the West Coast of Florida.  We went to the Clearwater Beach Pier 60 today and the water and beaches are just fine.  Thousands of people were there today, like any other day. 

Researchers today determined that the oil sheen has reached the Gulf of Mexico's loop current, so the oil may be reaching Key West in about a week.  They found tar balls there a couple days ago, but the tests determined that oil came from a natural source in the Gulf or it came from a passing ship that was pumping it's bilge. 

Anyways, it's still great to be on the Florida beaches right now, so keep your plans and come visit!

It's now the first of August and the Florida Beaches are still free of oil!  That's a good thing, so come on down and enjoy the heat!

------ Strange floating 'blob' found off Florida ------

 SARASOTA, Fla. - Scientists say an underwater blob of
 goo off the Florida Panhandle coast isn't oil, but
 rather a mass of dead plankton, algae and bacteria.
 The underwater mass of dead sea life, at least three
 feet thick and spanning 2/3 of a mile off to the coast,
 appears to be growing as microscopic algae and bacteria
 get trapped in it and die, the Sarasota (Fla.) Herald-
 Tribune reported Wednesday. Scientists investigating
 whether oil from last year's Deepwater Horizon disaster
 was a factor in the creation of the blob say tests so
 far have found no sign of oil. "It seems to be a combi-
 nation of algae and bacteria," David Hollander of the
 University of South Florida said, describing the sub-
 stance as toxic and "extraordinarily sticky." Research-
 ers say they are not ruling out a possible connection
 to the oil spill that gummed up that part of the gulf
 for 30 to 40 days and pumped 186 million to 227 million
 gallons of crude into the ocean. "We don't know all the
 ramifications, the implications of a spill like this,"
 Hollander said.

It's Spring here in Florida and there's STILL no trace of oil here on our beaches on the West Coast of Florida!  Hurray!
