Today at 6 PM EST, “In Discussion” radio show host and Gulf hero, David Gibbons will host the President Plaquemines Parish Louisiana, Billy Nungesser plus scientist Dr. Brian O’Leary in the program that will be heard globally, ‘A Cry for Help in the Aftermath of the Gulf of Mexico’s Deepwater Horizon Disaster.’
Gibbons’ international radio show, “In Discussion,” is ranked as the fastest growing new media vehicle in the world. Giving a voice to the voiceless in the Gulf, Gibbons is interviewing heavy-hitters in the Gulf truth movement such as ex-top oil industry executive, Ian Crane, environmental scientist Wilma Subra, Dr. Rodney Soto, plus parents with sick children who are suffering the most at ground zero, such as Captain Louie.
Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana: World Class Fishing Destination
“The mighty Mississippi River in Plaquemines Parish is the Gateway to the Gulf of Mexico. This area is fed by an abundance of water making our fishing habitats some of the best in the world,” reported Gibbons’ “In Discussion” seasoned investigative journalist, Patrick O’Brien.
Plaquemines is home to over 78 fresh and saltwater lakes and spreads over hundreds of miles of coastline.
“You can fish anywhere, but you catch fish in Plaquemines Parish,” boasts Plaquemines Tourist Board.
In announcing today’s Gulf Cry for Help program, O’Brien reports on the largest offshore oil-related catastrophe in U.S. history:
The Deepwater Horizon oil spill (also referred to as the BP oil spill, the Gulf of Mexico oil spill or the Macondo blowout) is a massive ongoing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, now considered the largest offshore spill in U.S. history. Some estimates placed it by late May or early June as among the largest oil spills in the world with tens of millions of gallons spilled to date. The spill stems from a sea floor 10,000 foot deep oil gusher (MC252) that followed the April 20, 2010 Deepwater Horizon drilling rig explosion.
The explosion killed 11 platform workers and injured 17 others. The gusher, now estimated by the quasi-official Flow Rate Technical Group to be flowing at 20,000 to 40,000 barrels (840,000 to 1,700,000 US gallons; 3,200,000 to 6,400,000 litres) of crude oil per day, originates from a deepwater wellhead 5,000 feet (1,500 m) below the ocean surface.
Exact spill flow rate is uncertain in part because BP has refused to allow independent scientists to perform accurate measurements and is a matter of ongoing debate, according to O’Brien.
“The resulting oil slick covers a surface area of at least 2,500 square miles (6,500 km2), with the exact size and location of the slick fluctuating from day to day depending on weather conditions.”
