This book is very hard to read and even harder to believe. However, since I live very near NYC I know for a fact that we were lied to about the air quality after the 9/11 attack. I remember thinking at the time that the stench which actually could be smelled in my town had to be bad for you. But the powers that be kept telling us that the air was just fine—A LIE or perhaps a distortion of the truth? I worked down there and the one thing I noticed was the birds had all left—not even a pigeon. First responders and residents who lived within wind distance—well lets just say—lots of people are still sick or getting sick!
Deborah Dupres has bravely put together a referenced book about the BP Gulf Oil Spill which tells it like it is. Oh we were all told about the marine mammals and fish who were dying—but not why—nor were we told about the effects on human beings. As if the oil spill, which may still be going on today if I am reading this correctly, was not bad enough--BP used a totally corrosive, carcinogenic chemical to attempt to clean up the spill. Unfortunately this particular chemical is stored in the fatty tissues of fish. Have you ever heard of the food chain? Well—the microscopic things that fish eat are saturated with this chemical—the fish eat the microscopic things—other fish eat those fish—even bigger fish eat those fish—then people eat those fish at their dinner table—not only in the Gulf region but where ever that fish is sold. Just the other day I read an article in the NY Times about more then a couple people in NY getting a strange type “food poisoning”—guess where the fish came from! I wish I had saved the url from that article-unfortunately I didn’t.
Meanwhile the air quality in the Gulf region is keeping people sick and causing pre mature deaths. It will take many generations for this chemical to MAYBE work it’s way out of our environment. Why aren’t we hearing about the human toll this oil spill has caused and is still causing—and why aren’t they getting any help!!
