Title: Make sure cleanup is complete
Source: Daily Comet
Date: October 4, 2012

The oil spill [...] left giant deposits of oil on or beneath the floor of the Gulf, where passing storms can bring it to the surface and push it ashore, continuing the devastating fallout of the spill more than two years later.

It sounds like a problem Louisiana might be forced to endure for years to come.

[...]

The Coast Guard’s Capt. Samuel Walker, the coordinator of the cleanup, acknowledged Tuesday that his agency is not even requiring BP to find the buried oil that unquestionably still exists in the Gulf.

[...]

Anyone who has paid attention to the Gulf oil spill’s ecological calamity and the cleanup efforts that have taken place from then until now knows that the need for cleanup remains. And it will remain until BP finds and removes the oil its spill dumped into the Gulf of Mexico.

[...]

We in south Louisiana will live for decades with the result of this cleanup. The Coast Guard owes it to us to do its job by making sure BP does its job.

    Water is the lifeblood to us and the earth, greed, power, ego is destroying it.

      Seems that the more that the total supply of fresh water for drinking and life-filled water environments are destroyed, then, the more that can be charged for a liter of potable water- so greater profit may be derived.

        I have reminded myself of the naked short-sellers and the insider traders on how those, relatively few players, totally destroy the integrity of the greater markets for their profit only. The market is destroyed, or mass ecocide is suffered, but the profits of doom are free to plan for their future.

      See MaidenHeaven's Oct5/6 posts on movie "Blue Gold" for a discussion and other links on politics of water (it's being purchased/privatized while we're not looking).

      Not mentioned there but also important to know is what the latest global trade agreement, (Transpacific Partnership – TPP) will do globally for many ordinary people and for regional/state authority — water will be 'regulated' by this agreement along with nearly everything else. Has been called "NAFTA on steroids" and gives corporations increased "rights".)

      I'd have much more respect for them and might even believe they are "united" if they didn't have an arsenal of nuclear weapons pointed at their shady neighbor-Pakistan…The developing countries who bought into the lies regarding how "needed" nuclear power technology is to their progress are probably the biggest threat to ending the nuclear industry's ambitions to expand while the best minds who are capable of seeing the harsh realities & damage to vast area's of land & sea and their precious resources and the harm already becoming evident to life forms,the food chain and us hungry humans gobbling up all of the tainted crap we can stick a fork in!!~Unfortunately TPTB aren't chosen from a pool of geniuses-only those willing to "conform" to the needs of the foulest class of humanity are allowed to be in the running! This seems to be a universal,international mindset and just the "way that it is & will be"-unless someone (a whole lot of "someone's"!)-start kicking some ass and taking control~SOON!!!

        Johnny Blade – I doubt the fishing village has designs on Pakistan, just as most US citizens (who're not drinking the kool-aid) know the Iranian people are suffering not because they should, but because they're living in the center of a chess board.

        Somehow it seems to me those of us in all nations who want TPTB to be 'dethroned' need to avoid confusing their membership with ordinary citizens. It's confusing to sort out, IMO, because so many 'ordinary citizens' buy into bits and pieces of the deceptions – and any of us can discover we've not dug deeply enough, or critical truth has not been available! :(

  • Yeah, raw bitumen, the original oil that comes out of the earth, is heavier then water unlike refined gasoline or even diesel fuel. So its another hidden pollution like nuclear. No one reports on the goings on below the ocean. Why does BP walk away without properly cleaning it up? I guess because they don't want to rock Britain's world too much. A proper clean up would bankrupt BP, ruining countless retirement funds in Britain. Even after bankrupting BP I doubt the clean up would be complete. Similar to Fukushima. Its just time to reign in these corporations. The accounting methods used download everything onto the environment and the common man. Too bad the politicians are bought and sold.
