“Crist is asking ill-informed beachgoers to endanger their health so the state’s tourism industry can be saved. “The Escambia County Health Department lifted a health advisory on Pensacola Beach on Friday on the advice of a beach official and against the advice of a federal environmental official,” reports PNJ.com. “
People of the Gulf states must realize they have to move. You cannot live on bottled water forever. Fresh water is a must, and as the oil seeps inland, the fresh water is taking away that one “must”, along with air, that people must have to live.
Hurricanes will bring the oil, by way of how a hurricane works, far inland, further than people would think it would reach.
As it now passes over waters where marine life live, killing them in it wake, it’s being carried via currents to areas that NO ONE would have thought. The Atlantic coast of Florida? How on earth would one have the foresight to think that the oil would head in that direction, when the Gulf appears to insulate the spill from areas beyond?
The oil is continuing to gush out in amounts so far above from what BP has allowed the media to know, that all the areas in the Gulf are becoming “dead zones.”
Florida Gov. Urges Vacationers to Swim in Toxic Sludge
By Kurt Nimmo Infowars.com June 28 2010
Florida Governor Charlie Crist is apparently more worried about the state’s economy than the health of vacationers and residents. Crist told CBS on Saturday the water is safe and people shouldn’t worry. “It is safe,” Crist declared, “there isn’t a toxic nature to it that is detrimental to anybody. It is much more of a nuisance than anything else at this point.”
Crist is asking ill-informed beachgoers to endanger their health so the state’s tourism industry can be saved. “The Escambia County Health Department lifted a health advisory on Pensacola Beach on Friday on the advice of a beach official and against the advice of a federal environmental official,” reports PNJ.com. Officials want to leave the decision to swim in the Gulf of Mexico up to the discretion of individual beachgoers.
Signs would be posted from the Florida-Alabama line to just west of Portofino Beach warning people about the toxic danger. The Environmental Protection Agency plans to put decontamination stations along the beach.
“These moves send conflicting signals about how safe it is to swim in the Gulf of Mexico as the impacts of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill broadens,” PNJ.com continues.
400 people have sought medical care for upper or lower respiratory problems, headaches, nausea, and eye irritation after trips to Escambia County beaches.
BP and the corporate media have colluded together to hide the full extent of the oil gusher and its health dangers. CNN concentrates on the impact on marine wildlife at the expense of the health problems arising.
Florida and its governor should not prevent people from swimming in the Gulf — that should be an individual decision — but it is seriously irresponsible for the state to encourage people and tell them there is nothing wrong.
Crist managed to raise around $25 million to put out propaganda touting Florida’s unstained beaches and encouraging folks to come on down. In response, Republican state senator Don Gaetz said, “It’s in days like this that I miss Jeb Bush.”
Charlie Crist wants vacationers to risk their health to save the economic health of his state. He is apparently unconcerned about the increasing number of people who are sickened by the toxic sludge washing up on the state’s beaches.
Oil Spill will destroy one of the Coast’s last economic drivers: tourism
There will no longer be healthy fish or shrimp to catch. Tourism is a lost cause. Perhaps the only thing left for anyone OR ANY “THING”, will be the oil that those wonderful oil giants are drilling for.
It’s time to move. Globs of oil are drifting on shore, birds are being found drenched in oil, turtles are washing up dead, the list goes on and on and on.
No one wants to think that the only place they’ve ever worked or a place where they’ve lived all their lives, will no longer be a place that is habitable, but that is what the Gulf is becoming, and it’s starting to show up in dead animals, dead fish, all from oil gushing out from a drilling form, and no one can stop it from gushing out.
Hurricane season is on its way. The worst is yet to come when they hit, and any hope of any success of capping the oil spill in a hurricane season is next to “naught”. It’s time, sadly, to move.
