Two years later after the horrific BP Deepwater Horizon Spill, and the results are terrifying. New pictures have emerged showing the true result of this spill; it was smoothed over in those first couple of months, buried, never to be talked about again.
The Deepwater Horizon disaster unleashed 4.9 millions barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. BP did all they could to cover up the true scale of the disaster, covering ends and keeping the public away. Photos released Monday showed how horrific the Gulf became for sea life.
The images were released in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that Greenpeace filed in August 2010, asking for anything related to endangered and threatened Gulf species. Over 100 photos were released from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), showing many animals buried under oil, and many severely endangered Kemp's Ridley sea turtles covered in oil and dead.
