Damage Briefing: The Great Lakes and The Gulf Oil Spill

Posted on: July 21, 2010

Milwaukee, WI – The thing about The Great Lakes and the gulf oil spill is that the gulf oil spill happened in what is essentially an open ocean. The Great Lakes would not offer the same capacity to restore ecological balance.

Far more catastrophic would be an oil or chemical spill inside The Great Lakes of such magnitude.

Damage would most likely be irreversible.

Widespread health emergencies are likely. You could expect to see an economic impact at the regional level at the very least if there is a catastrophic change to the quality of the water in The Great Lakes.

That is why I think there should be no more discussion on the matter unless it involves preventative measures or disaster recovery preparation.
