CNN: "Rescue: Saving the Gulf"

On Saturday July 24, Rob Marciano of CNN provided a report “Rescue: Saving the Gulf”, a one hour documentary, with link here.

Marcianio boarded, toured, and worked on a US Coast Guard skimmer. We saw the engine room, where the temperature is 120 degrees and everyone must wear earmuffs. Then Marciano donned his protective clothing before doing the skimming work, including gloves and booties, and had a physical with the ship’s medic, a female. Marciano's own appearance and demeanor are interesting in the film.

At the end of the day, many gallons of oil are collected in a vat, but it’s only a drop in the bucket.
