And there are those who want to continue drilling in the Gulf, even as they know oil as an energy source is on the way out.  The Gulf may be irreparably damaged from Deepwater Horizon.  Someday they or their descendants may want the Gulf more than they want oil.

And there are those like Nestle who would suck our springs and rivers dry, even as they are flowing at least 30 per cent below previous years and are deemed “impaired” and “in recovery” by the State of Florida, all the while claiming to tap only sustainable sources.  Their  propaganda and BP’s are similar in their misinformation and lies to the public.

U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Dustin Williams told the News Journal the oil was discovered Saturday, and samples were collected to determine the source of the oil.

The Coast Guard investigates reports of oil pollution in U.S. waters.

It’s unclear at this point if the submerged oil is from the 2010 oil spill that was stirred up from Hurricane Sally or if it is from another source.

Oil washes up along Johnson Beach on Perdido Key on Saturday.

Williams said the Coast Guard will work with Gulf Islands National Seashore to ensure the pollution is cleaned up.

“We want to get it cleaned up as fast as possible, so we’ll be working with the park service to make sure that happens,” Williams said. “Until we get those test samples back, right now, it’s still an unknown source.”
