Less oil- less of a problem?

It might be hard to decipher still what the heck state of function Louisiana is in after the BP oil spill- a lot of sources just say the situation looks better. As environmentalists, its hard to see someone saying that the damage is actually being remediated- our first reaction seems to be to just think of the headhunters of BP as men with devil horns with grins on their faces. Obviously, they aren't... but this whole oily mess has stirred outcrys from BP sympathizers, environmentalists, and people on the middle ground alike. Truly what is the situation now? Even when the reps from BP spoke to the world about the situation when it happened, it was hard to hear a clear answer- now that the oil is somewhat less visible, its easier to fantasize that the situation's all clear.

Check out these videos, they give a couple of different P.O.Vs on what state the coastline is in now: http://www.takepart.com/newstagthe-bp-oil-spill-one-year-later
