It gave hope that our Gulf might once again be clean and pristine.
This then leads to the endangerment of humans frolicking in the waters at the seashores of America's beaches.
The millions upon millions of gallons of oil that these "droves" of microbes are feasting upon were purposefully sunk to the depths by the millions of gallons of toxic oil dispersant (Corexit).
There is no telling the ratio of the "surge" that has now occurred with the spillage of untold millions of gallons of crude oil into the Gulf on which for these bacteria to feed and proliferate.
As such, the concentration of these pathogenic (disease causing) organisms could skyrocket in the waters of the Gulf.
This has been an anomalous year for hurricanes as not one has entered into the Gulf, across the oil spill area, as is usually the norm.
