05 May 2010. Venice, Louisiana. Deepwater Horizon, British Petroleum environmental oil spill disaster.
Gas and oil pipelines already criss-cross and decimate much of Louisiana's wetlands statewide. For decades environmentalists have complained that the channeling of such pipelines through the wetlands has done nothing but permit salt water to intrude upon fresh water, killing hundreds of thousands of acres of wetland. During hurricanes salt water is funneled into the marshes by the oil and gas channels slashing through the wetlands. The oil and gas industry has for the most part ignored the accusation, focusing instead on adding more such pipelines.
