BP tapping oil leak not capping

Update May 31 4:25 pm edt: Rep. Ed Markey has a few remarks concerning BP’s claims of ‘no plumes’. BP is acting crazy, right?

But you know, Politics: anything to divert public attention while continuing the transfer of all wealth into select power elite piggybanks!

Original post begins here:

As you may have noticed, BP has been unsuccessful in capping the Gulf oil leak/s. They led us on for days about the ‘Top Kill’ method only to dash our hopes (though I confess I had none and felt we were being shined on.)

With the lies BP has been caught in, its credibility (if indeed the corporate monster had any pre-April 20) has been lost so when they say, ‘Oops, the method didn’t work, it’s still leaking!’ we are witnessing a case of tapping billions of dollars worth of oil that can be sold as crude rather than stopping this environmental disaster.

Why should BP care about an American coastline or its inhabitants?

Well, folks living in the Gulf region have experience working for BP and for other oil companies and they have a few things to say about the situation: BP is tapping, not capping.

  1. Rage and ire abound now, agreed, yet Bush’s non-handling of the two-fer of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and their horrid aftermath comes close.

    Crimes were also committed then but BP and probably others (Halliburton and Transocean, one assumes) have made a profession of sneaky weaseling across the globe wherever there are resources to plunder.

    Their lawyers, in cahoots with some of our pocket-lining Washington politicians, work now to loophole away as much of their responsibility as they think they can get away with getting away with.

    Thanks a bunch for commenting, Shelley!

    The potentials of its being sabotage and/or terrorism are still on the astro-table around here. Jude

  2. My work is immersed in natural disaster, but I can’t remember an event like this that has roused the deep anger of so many blogs. We must not let business go on as usual. BP has committed a crime.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel are essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
