The effects of the BP oil spill are still all over many Gulf beaches. One Alabama resident walks us through what is still covering the beaches there, and is as far deep in the sand as he has tried digging. A national wildlife refuge in the area is still covered in oil, with seemingly contradictory signs sitting right next to each other. One sign says to not come in contact with the oil. “How do you not come in contact with the oil when it’s everywhere?” the maker of the video asks. What’s changed since the height of the cleanup efforts and media coverage? Not much. The sand is still covered in dispersed oil and the water looks the same,.. but, now, there aren’t people swimming in the water, walking on the beach, or feverishly “cleaning” things up.
