Seep found near blown out well

And, BP is not complying with government demands for more monitoring I read this and said to Sue, would LBJ have taken this crap from a business? No. Nor would have JFK. He whacked the steel companies upside the head when they defied him. Sue said, it’s a different world now, things are not the […]

Confusion as to new oil cap … Relief wells halted

If things were going well, would there be this much confusion? Especially since the government is questioning the process, saying tightening the new cap could put too much pressure on the well, and BP saying there is no assurance they will get the go-ahead. There seems to be a pattern here. Rosy promises that all […]

Is BP dumping sand to cover oil?

Are they trucking in sand and just covering up the mess? Are they trying to clean it up and the efforts just aren’t doing a bit of good with the tides full of oil coming in and out? No matter what they’re doing it doesn’t appear to be making any difference. The beaches still have […]

Apologize to BP

A few samples from Apologize to BP BP, it’s Mother Nature. I’m so very sorry I did not adequately design my marine bird, fish, and mammal species to evolve to the point that they could adapt to oily environments. I’ll try harder next time. Nobody’s perfect. BP, We’re sorry your oil slick and black tar […]

Gulf oil spill photos and video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fqu3beMcIw&feature=player_embedded “Aerial footage of tar on Pensacola Beach from Escambia County Sheriff’s Office helicopter.” It goes for miles and miles on (formerly) white sandy beaches in a major tourist area. Near the piers, people are looking at the oil. There are no clean up crews and the beach is apparently still open. This is devastation, […]

Britannia oils the waves

When Barack Obama referred to a major UK-based criminal organisation by its former name, British Petroleum, a storm of outrage followed in the UK’s corporate press and in the statements of Britain’s Liberal and Conservative politicians. They strenuously denied the US President’s outrageous implication that BP, the destroyer of lives, livelihoods and the environment, is […]

BP CEO to be ‘sliced and diced’ by House today

But will anything substantive come of it besides a few rousing soundbites? BP got a sweetheart deal on the escrow fund, as they can pay in over several years and the administrator is the same person who monitored Wall Street pay for excesses. Right, that worked out so well, didn’t it? So, Hayward will get […]

BP CEO grins upon leaving White House meeting

Here’s why. The $20 billion fund will be overseen by Kenneth Feinberg who has done such a wonderfully effective job of overseeing bankster salaries under TARP. Yeah, I bet BP is just shaking in their boots over this. (At last report Feinberg was still “reviewing” Wall Street salaries.) It gets worse. BP doesn’t have to […]

Obama’s Oval Office speech

Well, there was nothing new in it. He’s sticking to the party line that the relief wells will work and even said current efforts when done will capture 90% of the leak, which is certainly optimistic. Then he spent considerable time talking about the need for renewable energy, which is good, and ended with a […]

Matt Simmons: Dr. Doom of the Gulf oil leak

He’s continuing to say the relief well will fail, an undersea oil lake may cover 40% of Gulf, there’s a massive leak at the well head, and BP will go bankrupt with the stock falling to zero. TheStreet.com is saying (subscription only) that Simmons is a lunatic and BP will rise from the wreckage. This […]
