    Louisiana State University entomologist Linda Hooper-Bui has been studying the impact of the BP oil spill on insects and spiders for almost four years. She started her study shortly after the Macondo well blew out on April 20, 2010, before any oil washed up on shore. Her work documents the dwindling of the insect population in areas directly hit with the oil.

    Been some serious winging from the Americans over the bp incident , its a shame they didn't show as much concern about bopal !!!...

     

    What the hell has winging from the Americans got to do with a scientific study? Apart from anything else the consequence of oil spills should be of global interest especially if they start playing about in the Arctic.

    that means a new lot of lawsuits from the sue over anything USA

     

    I imagine the insects are consulting their lawyers as I write.
