CBS News: Government Report on Underwater Oil Plumes Due

|Includes: BP p.l.c. (BP)

Susan Atkinson has reported on the CBS Evening News that a government report on subsurface oil in the Gulf of Mexico will soon be released.  A date for the report was not mentioned.

I first reported about these oil plumes on May 28.  On May 30, BP denied that such plumes existed, even stating that they were physically impossible.  As we approach the end of June, it appears that some official acknowledgement of the plumes will soon be made.  Atkinson said that the report will far from the last word on submerged clouds of oil since sampling data is still very incomplete.
