"The whale was rotting, had probably been dead for a few days to a week, was likely a sub-adult, and parts of its carcass had been eaten by sharks. That same day, NOAA
observers on another vessel at the Macondo well site in the Gulf saw five sperm whales, including a juvenile, covered in oil. Two days later, NOAA issued a press release about the dead whale, announcing that it would have tests conducted to determine the cause of death. "The unfortunate whale, and some revealing e-mail exchanges, including the revelation that the crew of the Pisces was instructed not to post
or disseminate any pictures they took. There were not any results of the tests that were conducted into the cause of the whale's demise," Greenpeace reports. What they received, and released Wednesday, was a trove of photographs of that unfortunate whale, revealing e-mail exchanges containing alarming information. Among that information was that the crew of the Pisces was instructed not to post or disseminate any pictures they took. There were not any results of the tests that were conducted into the cause of the whale's demise. Because the Macondo well capping was unsuccessful, or a well-orchestrated media "sham," as the oil insider Matt Simmons had said, the oil and methane have been leaking ever since. Huge amounts of gases including methane and pentane spewed from the Macondo oil well, along with at least 206 million gallons of crude oil that is still filling the gulf today. The journal Nature Geoscience, University of Georgia oceanographers estimated months ago that 500,000 tons of gaseous hydrocarbons escaped during the spill and the gas leak was equivalent to a minimum of 1.
