  1. James Fox is a reporter who documented the Stephenville, Texas UFO story. He is now in the Gulf of Mexico area documenting stories of local people following the oil spill caused by BP. Many local people he talked to in Grand Isle LA reported to him that they are not allowed to take pictures of the beaches and other activities happening in that area. They say they are threatened with arrest if they take pictures or talk about what is going on.A US Senator went to Grand Isle recently to video tape the area with an environmentalist. When they got to Grand Isle where the pelicans are the Coast Guard insisted they stop their cameras. When asked why the CG commander said because you will disturb the wildlife here with your cameras running. The Senator said that is BS. I will to find that link and leave it here for people to watch the video of what happened when a Senator filmed the LA coast line by boat.

    Oil spill raises concerns about air quality along coastal Louisiana, WWL-TV New Orleans, May 18, 2010:

    There are effects from the oil spill that you can see, like oil washing ashore, and those that you can’t, like when oil compounds breakdown and go airborne.

    “We don’t want to be alarmist, but we want to be realistic,” said Marylee Orr, with the Louisiana Environmental Action Network, an advocacy group.

    For several weeks now, the federal Environmental Protection Agency has been tracking what’s in the air, by using a mobile truck and seven monitoring stations, located mainly in St. Bernard and Plaquemines Parishes.

    They are looking for evidence of several compounds, including Hydrogen Sulfide, particulate matter and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s), like Benzene, a known carcinogen.

    “These pollutants could pose a health risk to local communities and this monitoring is essential to ensure that communities are protected as BP takes direct response actions,” EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson said during a Senate Committee Hearing on Tuesday.

    All can irritate the eyes, nose, throat and lungs, and in some cases lead to nausea and dizziness. …

    Take Hydrogen Sulfide, commonly known as swamp gas: a normal level in the air for it ranges from 5 to 10 parts per billion (ppb). At monitoring station in Venice, on May 2, the levels recorded were 30 ppb. The next day, May 3, the reading was nearly 40 times that, at 1,192 ppb. The day after that, May 4, it dropped down to 46 ppb, before rising on May 5 to 1,010 ppb.

    “It varies based on the wind direction, whether or not they’re burning the slick,” Orr said. “I think what they’re saying is that it’s an OK exposure for a short amount of time — and we have a concern about that sort of exposure for any amount of time.”

    However, Wilma Subra, a chemist who heads up a lab and environmental consulting firm in New Iberia, said the numbers she’s been analyzing give her pause. …

    “[T]hat is of concern, that the people understand what is there and understand if they start getting the health impacts, they should take precautions to move out of the area.”

    Those who should pay particular attention are the young, the elderly or those who already have underlying breathing problems. Experts said anyone experiencing symptoms of exposure to those chemicals, should see their doctor.

  3. As promised here is that link to LA Senator Vitter's visit to Grand Isle with the President of the Humane Society not an Environmentalist as I apologize for not listening more carefully who he was with. See on video for yourself the Coast Guard denial to let him and his party to visit the refuge for wildlife with cameras.

  4. Hi Mel! This is very interesting. I came a long a Suiss company the develops biological oil spill remediation products. In contrast to other existing products, these are complete harmless and exclusively natural (basically a combination of minerals). They are able to completely dissolve oil (yes!) without any toxic by-products, whether it is on land, in the water, on the skin, animals. The companies name is Oil Treatment International:

    There are two very interesting videos on YouTube that show how it works and that give some demonstrations:

    I thought this is a very intersting piece of information. Please help to spread around this, so people know that there are alternative solutions to the current desaster that is happening in the Gulf of Mexico. The more people know, the higher the chance that something can change. Can you communicate this information to James Fox?

    thanks and best regards
    Alex
