The Web site of the Lousiana Environmental Action Network (LEAN) features an interview with Clayton Matherne, who has been suffering serious health problems as a result of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill which happened a year ago this month.
The videos are the personal testimony of Mr. Clayton Matherne. Mr. Matherne has asked LEAN to publish his story "in hopes that it will help others who are suffering know that they are not alone and for those who are not aware of their plight that assistance is greatly needed."
Also on the LEAN page is an address by Dr. Michael Robicheaux who spoke last week at the Baton Rouge Press Club. He spoke in-depth about the large number of sick people that he has been treating since the BP oil disaster occurred. The sick include workers who worked on the response to the disaster as well as divers, fishermen and coastal residents.
