Impact of Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill on Coral Communities Is Deeper and Broader than Predicted — Eberly College of Science
A new discovery of two additional coral communities showing signs of damage from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill expands the impact footprint of the 2010 spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The discovery was made by a team led by Charles Fisher, professor of biology at Penn State University. A paper describing this work and additional impacts of human activity on corals in the Gulf of Mexico will be published during the last week of July 2014 in the online Early Edition of the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

They’re at least common enough at the two bars we frequent, which makes sense as we’re in a dog-saturated neighborhood and close to two popular parks, one of them mostly for dogs.
They say that “informed consent” laws violate their beliefs about scientific accuracy and bodily autonomy.
