mutant sea life in gulf of mexico

the mermaid continues to be worried about fellow merfolk in the gulf of mexico, which saw not only a giant oil spill, but also the use of a substance that makes the oil sink out of human sight. unfortunately, this substance is extremely toxic to sealife. the mermaid’s fears seem to have been confirmed by a recent report.

‘Gulf of Mexico fishermen, scientists and seafood processors have told Al Jazeera they are finding disturbing numbers of mutated shrimp, crab and fish that they believe are deformed by chemicals released during BP’s 2010 oil disaster.’

the mermaid asks: who bears the responsibility for this? the developers of the toxic substance, the users of the substance or the users and developers of oil-dependent machinery?

  1. The Mermaids must have to go up for air more!

  2. I can’t believe that the shrimp,crabs,and fish are MUTATING!

  3. Honestly, I’m sure the life could go in without oil-dependent machinery. Almost all inhabitants of planet Earth live their daily lives without the use of oil, or electricity. The only ones that “need” it are humans. We were able to survive for thousands of years without it, so why use it now?
