I am wondering why there are only a few skimmer boats working and of the MSRC boats only The Louisiana Responder and maybe one of the Flordia “Responder” boats are on scene.
Foss has spill response boats and teams all up and down the West Coast and MSRC has boats all up and down the Gulf and East coasts. Why are not all of these boats on scene doing everything they can to catch some of these tar plumes before they reach the marshes and beaches?
Our government should have every professional marine oil spill response team in the country helping to contain and skim this spill.
I have seen footage of the LA responder on scene but near shore all I have seen is some minimum wage temp workers in tyvek suits and john boats putting on a show for the media.
If a national cooridination of these vessels were to take place they could reduce the amount of dispersant they are using to sink the oil to the bottom before it ever reaches shore.
After all these “tar balls” are obviously the by product of a crude oil and dispersant mix.
They are just poisoning future generations by sinking the oil to the sea floor.
