AP photographer Rich Matthews offers people a view of the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico from underwater. Risking his own health, Mr. Matthews has been diving into the contaminated waters with nothing more than a wetsuit, scuba gear and a video camera. This is some of what he has to say:
“Splashing here forty miles offshore the images are heartbreaking. Oil so thick it blocks out almost all of the light below. Because of the darkness I stay just 10 to 15 feet under the surface, but I can see oil in every direction as far as I can look. Up and down.”
See the disturbing video for yourself, and then take the time to call your elected representatives and tell them you want clean energy NOW.
