If it's news to you that the oil was still being cleaned up, well, that's no surprise given that local news outlets radio, TV, internet or print... well when there is print anyway... are more likely to transmit BP's self-congratulatory advertisements than they are information about the un-vanishing oil.
Anyway, here's an exception to that.
While surveying pollution in the wake of Hurricane Isaac, teams found new oil and oiled animals Sunday in the vicinity of two inactive oil production facilities near Myrtle Grove, the U.S. Coast Guard said.The story implies that this is probably not BP oil which, well, actually that might be worse news.
Oil was found in the area of the facilities, whose former owners were not immediately known. There was no sign of an active leak.
