To read an article entitled, "BP oil not degrading on Gulf floor, study says" which is at the Yahoo News website please click on the underlined words in this sentence.From the article:
"The study concluded that mats of oil — not weathered tar, which is harder and contains fewer hydrocarbons — are still submerged on the seabed and could pose a long-term risk to coastal ecosystems."
This is just awful! Why has the United States Government not done anything about this and not forced BP to pay to clean up the oil which is still on the seabed and in the water??
