British Petroleum....had better cough up the cash!


Recommended Posts

Oooooohhhh...so scary! The "impact" will be far less than the Chicken Littles advertsied...they so desperately wanted a major calamity for their political struggle...now lost in the reality of spilled milk...err...oil.

Give it a year or two to know the impact this will have.

Why wait that long...you were whining about it last year without any evidence at all.

Because this type of thing will take some time to know the real impact. It's taken this long for the area where the Exxonn Valdeze crashed to get back to some kind of normal state. The Gulf had the equivalent of an Exxon spilling every two days, for months on end.

And I guess if a nuke dropped on a US city, you'd equate people to whining when saying it was a bad thing. But that's been your apologetic track record. The Gulf of Mexico may not even recover, time will tell.

Then why couldn't you hold your water? You have a history of claiming that the sky is falling...from dead bees to digital copyright protection.

Oh no....the end of the Gulf of Mexico...I wonder how we will ever survive.

I don't make those claims, others are.

Well nothing will get resolved with that kind of attitude. Sure let's dump hundreds of millions of barrels into the ocean, and at the same time use a toxic dispersant called Corexit which the EPA told BP to stop using soon after it was in use. Because there were other dispersants that were more effective and less toxic to the environment.

But if you don't mind the crap and piss in your front lawn, can we start pissing and crapping on your back lawn?

The potential for this to happen again is very high, after investigations, many wells in the Gulf pose the same risk. One simple blow out preventer valve could have ...prevented this ..... one item that is a half a mill compared to the billions the clean up is costing.

But then again, they might be making more money on the clean up than extracting the oil. Who knows. Greed knows no boundaries. But continue with your idiocy if you must.

There have been over 42,000 wells drilled in the Gulf...this risk was taken and will be taken again for obvious reasons.

...yes, I must. Buy any gas lately?

And we see what happens when there are things to prevent this kind of risk. The technology exists, every other country demands that companies use the acoustic valve. Again, one simple device could have prevented the whole disaster.

...yes, I must. Buy any gas lately?

What is the relevance of this to the disaster that was a product deregulation during the Bush presidency?

Sure they do...EVERY OTHER COUNTRY! Why are you so dramatic about such things?

More nonsense...the investigation has already pointed to systemic errors and faults going back decades.

BUSH! BUSH! BUSH!

Because people like you don't give a crap and shrug this off as a 'no big deal' thing.

The same thing was found this time, now learn from the mistakes.

And everything is BUSH BUSH BUSH ... your name says so.

The best is the last line of the article.

"Ecology tells us there are chains of events that occur for inputs or disturbances in the environment. One thing can lead to another," West said.

"It's a huge red flag," said Richard Snyder, director of the University of West Florida Center for Environmental Diagnostics and Bioremediation. "It seems abnormal, and anything we see out of the ordinary we'll try to investigate."

Are the illnesses related to the BP oil spill, the cold winter or something else?

That's the big question Snyder's colleague, UWF biologist William Patterson III, and other scientists along the Gulf Coast are trying to answer. If the illnesses are related to the oil spill, it could be a warning sign of worse things to come.

In the years following the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska's Prince William Sound, the herring fishery collapsed and has not recovered, according to an Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Trustee report. The herring showed similar signs of illness — including skin lesions — that are showing up in Gulf fish.

More to come!!

Right about now as you sit eating that little shrimp - you will be injesting a tiny bit of BP's garbage...enough time has passed that it has reached you...but what the heck - whats a bit of gas in your milk going to do other than give you a very unpleasant burp?

Some are going to go on about how the "bacteria" have eaten all those tons and tons and tons of crude oil --- and how the dispersants were so effective that all the oil simply disappeared...no folks it's still there - and is being injested tiny bit by bit - by sea creatures including plankton...and yes - give it another ten years and one might wonder why that infant across the street has a brain tumor.
