All those tourists covered with oil...? Tar balls in paradise...?
Tar balls have been found at Key West, broken oil sheens have been seen pulled into the loop current from the eddy towards the Gulf stream between the Keys and Cuba
Time for the ARC to investigate the British Petroleum crude oil slick at the Gulf coast, possibly an opportunity to do some good...
[Potential transport funding being arranged via official channels, preliminary destination is the village of islands, awaiting further information and confirmation]
