    "In the media coverage and political decision-making generated by the BP blowout the greatest emphasis has been put on the effects of the easily seen oil floating on the surface, while far less attention has been paid to the hidden impacts below. I believe the Mother Jones article shows that, in fact, the oil that remains below the surface, along with the dispersants and other substances used by BP to deal with the blowout, will have much greater and longer-lasting impacts on the marine ecosystem of the Gulf of Mexico and potentially beyond into the Atlantic."
