Gulf Oil Disaster Coverup — Calling Out BP, EPA and Obama

From the very beginning of the Gulf Oil Disaster, we’ve been bringing you facts and information that BP and its minions have been trying to cover up.  We’ve also been trying to warn the EPA and Coast Guard about the dangers of Corexit as utilized… and been shut down, stalled off and stonewalled all along.  Now we see that Anderson Cooper and CNN haven’t fared any better than we have. 

The people we contact at the Gulf coast talk about people being sickened — lots  of them.  They talk about bodies of oil-soaked dead dolphins piled up, waiting to be burned before cameras and news crews can get those images out.  They tell us about BP setting fire (“flaring”) the surface of the ocean, refusing to allow turtle rescuers to scoop up live victims before they ignite the surface oil.  Yes, that’s right, endangered species amongst them, they’re burning these creatures alive, rather than let rescuers go in and get them!

Much of the nation and just about every animal and environmental activist,  to a soul, they all have the same question on their lips these days: By what right does BP order the U.S. Coast Guard to violate our Constitutional rights?  By what right does BP control the airspace above the Gulf?  Where do they get off telling U.S. citizens where we can or cannot be or take pictures?

We’ve been very patient, but that patience is now entirely exhausted.  We demand that President Obama step in, remove BP from any decision making role in the efforts to clean up and stop this disaster’s spread.  It was foolish to allow the fox to guard the henhouse in the first place.  Lisa Jackson and the rest of the BP lackies that have been sucking up to the EPA should also be removed.  Their judgment cannot be trusted.  We need people down there who put the environment and the victims — human and otherwise — before all else.   This is not the time for politics or negotiations.  This is the time to do the best we can, regardless of cost or infringement. 

Protect The Ocean welcomes and appreciates the Taiwanese ship “The Whale”.  We welcome and appreciate Kevin Costner’s centrifuge.  We welcome and appreciate the offers of assistance from the Netherlands and all the other groups and nations offering constructive assistance.  We categorically reject any suggestion that the well be blown up via explosion of any kind, and especially reject the Russian suggestion of a nuclear bomb being used in the Gulf.  Only constructive suggestions and efforts are welcome in this, our ocean.

The time for negotiations has expired.  The time to play nice is gone.  The time to allow BP the opportunity to clean up their own mess was long ago past.  N0w is the time to get angry.  Now is the time to mobilize.  Now is the time to take action, and to firmly demand that our government do the same.  We have tried things their way.  This is OUR ocean, OUR planet, and OUR lives and the lives of OUR friends are on the line.   No more Mister Nice Guy.  BP, you’ve shown us what you’re about.  Get  out of the way, or be run over.  We are not allowing you to call the shots on anything anymore.

    Obama told America that if we can win WWII and put a man on the moon, we can plug this leak and solve our dependency on fossil fuels.

    But there’s a missing piece: the soldiers in WWII had the Pentagon and Neil Armstrong had NASA. What’s the man on the street supposed to do to solve the fossil fuel problem? Is it time for an organized, funded effort?

    The following link is to a satirical video, but it underscores this issue in real terms.

    Exactly right. I would like to join a mass action lawsuit for criminal damage to the environment by BP, a lawsuit from citizens from all over the world. This is clearly not just an american problem, it is a planetary disaster – particularly if/when the oil gets into the gulf stream. Where do we start???

    Well said, well said. I underwent BP Deepwater Horizon Response Training in May and experienced first hand what a genuinely epic cluster —- this is. It’s like putting a murder suspect in charge of cleaning up his own crime scene. Sure, keep them in charge of shutting the sucker down. But absolutely under no circumstances should anyone from BP even be allowed to participate whatsoever in cleanup other than to sign the checks. As in…ALL THE CHECKS.
