Ever since the Deepwater Horizon Accident and the utterly insane decision by BP to dump tens of thousands of gallons of Corexit into the Gulf to ‘cover up’ the spill, I have not eaten and continue to refuse to eat any Gulf Coast Shrimp or any other seafood caught or produced in the Gulf of Mexico. Corexit contains know carcinogens which cause Cancer, and these chemical compounds are now thoroughly embedded in the food chain of the same. BP has turned the Gulf of Mexico into another Love Canal.
STAY ORDER! That is what has dictated our destiny as we and our families suffer. We are not permitted to try any PI cases because one judge holds the power to delay our trials until he sees fit. We were given the option to opt out and pursue legal action because the monetary amounts in the settlement were a joke compared to the cost of losing our health and livelihoods. Now we sit and wait 9 years later all because of Barbier. It’s criminal and wrong. Our rights have been trampled by the courts stay order. Open the door so we can have a shot at recovery!
Thank You Rocky for telling the story accurately and concisely your readers need to know. Also thanks for caring
email@example.com I have a friend in gulf shores Alabama lives on the bay caught fish and lived a clean healthy life. He now has cancer of the esophagus and is undergoing treatment and fighting for his life Took it 9 years to catch up with him but it did Accountability by BP, EPA, DEQ etc…. that’s what is needed now
I was involved in response decisions after the Exxon Valdez oil spill in 1989. Exxon wanted to use Corexit and when we asked for trials to demonstrate whether it was toxic to salmon. They balked and performed a few half-assed experiments. Fortunately, we were able to deny its use despite enormous pressure by Exxon. Your article reinforces the rightness of that decision.
Thank you for putting out the truth Rocky. I work for a law firm that represents residents and workers with chronic health conditions related to exposure and the struggle is real! Cancer and neurological disorders are commonplace among those exposed. The truth must come out and Corexit must be banned.
You know what really crazy about this whole ordeal is the fact that the ones most affected from the oil spill get no compensation while the 124.96 million dollars goes to the attorneys who are representing us who are injured. Just a little bit up front would the workers out.
I could go on and on about this topic but not one of the companies would believe any of the facts that they are responsible for ruining a lot of life’s and life forms. But I will stop here.
Same here. Lawyers get all the money. I have downs law group and I feel like they not doing what it takes to get people paid. They get the bulk of the money I received a check for$700 and the lawyers got the rest about 3 years ago but I am still dealing with chronic issues. Being constantly told to keep going to the Dr. It’s ridiculous.i have gotten to the point to where I’ve stopped calling and checking. Just praying God makes something happen in my favor.
I too was a first responder to the oil spill and I too am awaiting compensation for my health issues relating to the oil spill. If it wasn’t for the VA Health Care that I have been receiving since the spill who knows if I would be here.
