Deepwater Horizon Spill Created Horrific Mutant Creatures in the Gulf of Mexico

From uncensored.co.nz

As the 10-year anniversary of the horrific Deepwater Horizon oil spill approaches, the area’s ocean floor has been transformed into a fetid wasteland coated in tar and populated by handfuls of deformed, tumor-ridden crustaceans.

The explosion on a BP oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010 was one of the most catastrophic disasters to hit the ocean in human history, with the U.S. government estimating that 4.9 million barrels (210 million gallons) were discharged across hundreds of square miles.

But new video footage from a 2017 expedition has confirmed the worst fears regarding the catastrophic spill, showing that the Gulf is not only still reeling from the disaster but may have been rendered a permanent dead zone.

The footage was captured by a camera-mounted remotely operated vehicle (ROV) operated by a team at the Louisiana University Marine Consortium, or LUMCON. Their findings on the apocalyptic ruin lying extant across the once-thriving deep sea was recently published in the journal Royal Society Open Science.

When marine researcher Clifton Nunnally first saw the footage uncovered by the ROV, he was blown away by the horrors that he witnessed.

As Atlas Obscura reports:

Nothing prepared us for what we saw, [Clifton said.] … a slick black wasteland, empty of all its usual denizens, such as sea cucumbers and giant isopods. Instead, the area had been taken over by strange crabs and shrimp, either tumor-ridden or eerily languid, as if sleepwalking across the seafloor. The typically white marine snow—detritus that had drifted down from organisms living above—was jet black and clumped up. It was clear that the site was toxic, and maybe irrevocably marred.

While the area had previously been known for its rich biodiversity, the zone surrounding the Deepwater Horizon site was devoid of such features as sea anemones, sponges and corals typical of that part of the deep sea.

“It was like visiting a graveyard. There were even slimey “webs” at the seabed that looked like cobwebs. It was the only time I’ve been in a submarine along the seabed and found myself sad and dreading what was coming next.”- UGA’s @SeepExplorer https://t.co/JBQ4hdYmol

Instead, they found some shrimp and a number of deformed, mutated crabs with shells blackened by oil, covered in parasites. In many cases, limbs and claws were shriveled or entirely missing.

In bed with the world’s biggest polluters the WWF is also accused of committing violent crimes against indigenous peoples, contributing to 20 million ‘conservation’ refugees

Not new, as is from 2014. Stories like this deserve to be shared over & over lest the revelations be forgotten. I stopped donating to this cause long ago after I learned some of the ugly truth.

World Wildlife Fund’s hidden role in spreading harmful corporate practices is revealed in new book

Monsanto, Coca-Cola, Shell, HSBC, Cargill, BP, Alcoa and Maine Harvest have reportedly all benefited from the WWF’s green label while continuing business as usual … Wilfried Huismann

NaturalNews) Overcoming adversity by piercing through the corporate fabric in which the world’s corporations are banded together, PandaLeaks – The Dark Side of the WWF exposes the ugly underbelly of the planet’s largest conservation group.

Written by award-winning German journalist and filmmaker Wilfried Huismann, the book almost didn’t make it to print after the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) fought tooth and nail to stop its sale. The group’s efforts to stop the book’s publication, which included a massive campaign of threats and a series of lawsuits, fell short of preventing the controversial report from reaching the market.

Two years of on-the-ground investigative research reveals a number of horrid, and incredibly disappointing, facts about the WWF. While earlier skepticism has surrounded the conservation group for years, their unethical and hypocritical tactics have not yet been exposed in depth until the release of Huismann’s recent research.

The book accuses the WWF of “selling its soul” to corporations in exchange for their donations, as well as forging alliances with powerful, non-sustainable businesses that are destroying the planet and “greenwashing” their operations under the conservation group’s label.

New book blows the whistle on WWF’s cozy relationship with Big Business

Originally released under the name The Silence of the Pandas in 2012, the book became a German bestseller before being recently published in English following a series of injunctions and court cases, according to The Guardian.

Monsanto, Coca-Cola, Shell, HSBC, Cargill, BP, Alcoa and Maine Harvest have reportedly all benefited from the WWF’s green label while continuing business as usual, said Huismann. While publicly condemning such corporations, behind closed doors the WWF has set up “round tables” of industrialists on hot commodities such as palm oil, timber, sugar, soy, biofuels and cocoa.

An ethnic group residing in the Congo, the Baka people, say they’ve been forced from their ancestral lands in the name of “conservation.”

“WWF is a willing service provider to the giants of the food and energy sectors, supplying industry with a green, progressive image… On the one hand it protects the forest; on the other it helps corporations lay claim to land not previously in their grasp. WWF helps sell the idea of voluntary resettlement to indigenous peoples,” said Huismann.

WWF involved in the beatings and torture of indigenous peoples in the name of “conservation”

An elite club consisting of 1,001 of the world’s richest people, including philanthropists, industrialists and upper-class naturalists, are reportedly operating out of the WWF, which was set up more than 50 years ago by Prince Philip and Prince Bernhart of the Netherlands. This elite club serves as an “old boys’ network,” holding “influence in the corridors of global and corporate and policy-making power.”

Aside from being in bed with some of the world’s biggest polluters, the WWF has also been accused of committing crimes against indigenous peoples by funding their “displacement” and “cultural extinction,” contributing to more than 20 million people who are now classified as “conservation refugees.”
