Capping wells but not liability for spills

Yesterday the Democrats gave up on passing before their break a bill which would establish unlimited liability for corporate oil spills.

Meanwhile, BP says their current efforts to cap and stop the Gulf Gusher have proved successful – mud has saved the day, say they. Yet this assurance comes from a disengenuous corporation that also says that most of the ‘spilled’ oil has mysteriously disappeared!

Putting on my thinking cap, this can hardly be the case, now can it? ‘Look within the marshes and the water columns’ would be the first suggestion on my list.

What’s on yours?

How odd that these experts can leak oil in massive amounts but have trouble finding it not 4 months later! Why, it’s almost as if the carcenogenic dispersants BP used have affected their eyesight and they’re hoping that mass hypnosis saves them further trouble and expense.

Meanwhiler, Capitol Hill can’t get its act together before the break so the concept of justice for the people and for an injured environment will be going on vacation as well…and until further notice.

  1. Hugh, my views on Union Carbide are unprintable!

    Sliding out from their Dow moniker doesn’t help them as far as i’m concerned but where do i start? Plastics are ruining the matrix of the planet and the Bhopal Gas Massacre of 1984 still horrifies me which makes looking at its horoscope (Dec 3, 1984 Midnight Bhopal, India) very difficult to write upon.

    What are your views on UC? Jude

Princes, Paupers, Pilgrims & Pioneers: Our Predecessors & Me

“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…
