A lot of us here at FDL get frustrated with how ineffective our political leaders have become. Paul Watson, Founder of Sea Shepherd Conservation Society has demonstrated that we don’t need to just rely on our political leaders to create change for the better. As he said, “all social change comes from the passion of individuals.”

My letter to the White House this week:
Dear Ms. Browner,
During the week of August 4, 2010, you served as the administration’s principle spokesperson appearing on multiple national television programs, including NBC’s Meet the Press and ABC’s Good Morning America, to report findings from the interagency BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Budget. You stated repeatedly that “the vast majority of the oil appears to be gone.”
This week, multiple independent scientists have released calculations and investigations that show quite the opposite:
* from the University of Georgia that upwards of seventy nine percent of the spilled oil still remains in the Gulf
* from the University of South Florida oil found on the bottom of the ocean in a vast area of subsea canyons some 40 miles from the Florida panhandle
* and from the Wood’s Hole Oceanographic Institution, published today in Science, new mapping of the disputed massive underwater plumes of oil.
