Asian Tiger Shrimp Invades US

Jumbo Asian tiger shrimp are invading Gulf of Mexico waters in the United States of America.

The Asian tiger prawn is a foot-long cannibalistic crustacean.

Huge, hungry, ravenous prawns from Asia have exploded across the Gulf this year.

The ecological impact on the Gulf of Mexico is unclear at this time. Good Day.

British Petroleum BP Oil Spill Environmental Disaster

BP Oil Spill is a massive ongoing oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico near Louisiana. It is now considered the largest offshore spill in USA history and an environmental disaster.

The Deepwater Horizon rig’s “bop” blowout preventer did not automatically cut off the oil flow as intended after the explosion.

The exact spill flow rate is unknown because  BP has not allowed independent scientists to perform accurate measurements. The BP oil slick covers a surface area of more than 2500 square miles from Louisiana to Florida.

BP’s stock price is down by 50% on the NYSE and a Market cap loss of $62 Billion USD.

Deepwater Horizon Drilling Rig Explosion April 20 2010

The Deepwater Horizon, a floating oil drilling platform in the Gulf of Mexico, exploded on April 20, 2010 killing eleven and injuring seventeen rig workers. 

Methane gas escaped from the well and shot up the drill column, expanding quickly as it burst through several seals and barriers before exploding and igniting the Deepwater Horizon.

Survivors described the catastrophe as like the movie Titanic with a fire so bright that they couldn’t look at it and a  heat so intense that it  melted the paint off boats. After burning for a day and a half the Deepwater Horizon sank on April 22, 2010. RIP.
