We've looked to VBS.tv and its TOXIC series in the past for unconventional, gonzo-style reports on the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and the Salton Sea. Recently they visited the Gulf of Mexico to see if they could cut through some of the red tape and find out just what was going on down there. This 25 minute video is probably as personal and ground-level a take on the situation as you'll find without going there yourself. Warning: there's some NSFW language, mainly stemming from the fact that people in Louisiana are mad as hell right now.
