BP, Sucking the Suck out of Suck…

A reader wrote me an e-mail with a good suggestion I’m posting here:

We need to visualize effective action.

And besides visualize effective action, we should start bugging the crap out of our government. This is now the biggest man made ecological disaster in the history of the human race. Not only should all parties be prosecuted, that is anyone with the slightest bit of power to have stopped what happened from happening, but we have to do any crazy ass thing we can think of and try it.

If James Cameron wants to build a robot under water to save the ocean, let him.

Who the hell is BP to tell him he can’t get involved and why the F is our government allowing them to dictate how the clean up should be dealt with? They F-up they should shut up and pay for every legitimate as well as every hair brained idea anyone can think of to get the bleeding to stop and if they don’t like it they can shove it up their monarchy loving butt holes.

This is OUR COASTLINE, last I looked the Queen wasn’t living in Texas, at least not their Queen.

Why the Obama administration has allowed them to have a say in anything is beyond me. This to me is the biggest problem of his administration. He’s too diplomatic. Sometimes you have to be a jerk to get things done and I’m not sure he’s willing to be a jerk.

Oh, well this is the other side of the coin. Get an erudite, intelligent idealist in leadership and you either get a Lincoln or a Carter. The difference being Lincoln took big risks, Obama should take heed in that regard. He has to stop being so middle of the road and so safe. The whole Democratic party better get a grip and be more aggressive or they will stand for nothing except reasonableness. Not something to write home about for sure.

Many blessings,

Denise

So call your representatives, senators and the White House! Don’t just e-mail them! Drive them insane!

    Dear Sir

    This is a time for healing. I do understand your frustration but do not blame others only. Healing strarts with oneself. Oneself, others and the earth. There is a lot to do and one cannot be a jerk to change. We’ve had some wake-up calls lately and humanity has to go through some mutation to accomplish it’s destiny for a better world. Those changes cannot be force on peuple. It would mean no growth. Let’s pray.

    Kind regards,
    Benoit

    Cameron wants to use a robot? I say let him, and give BP the bill. I agree Obama is being too passive, but I tend not to dwell on it as I find it too depressing. I cut off my cable entirely, and that helps. Visualize what exactly? A plugged hole? Any thoughts?

    As head of Alpha, I agree on your frustation, but sometimes, in this world, we cannot always oppose the human race. Resulting in doing so will cause us to succumb to human actions e.g. jail,fine,etc. Therefore, we can only disguise and wait for the time when they realise that not listening to us will have devastating effects. Let me know of your thoughts on this, will you?

    It is proper for President Obama to consult PM James Cameron on the matter of BP. As a Canadian, I want Americans to remember that America was built on the foundations of the British Empire, and keeping sacred ties with the British while being sovereign from is essential. Canadians have been respectful about this, and it is very unfortunate that Americans do not share this value whom share a common mother.

    I’ve met too many British yobs to have your perspective.

    Here is something ironic I read recently. British Petroleum had their start with the CIA coup of Iran in 1953. Looks like we are reaping what we have sown, or our secret government has sown for us.

  6. Juno says:

    Barry wow I’d forgotten that — I remember reading that years ago. Iran had just had democratic elections of Mohammed Mossadeq (sp?) and he even won Time Man of the Year here in the U.S. The U.K., still under Churchill or at least his influence, arranged with the C.I.A. to have MM overthrown and the Shah put into power. Sigh.

    From Jim Willie’s July edition of the Hat Trick Letter.
    $$$ ALMOST ALL EXXON VALDEZ CREW MEMBERS IN CHARGE OF CLEAN-UP ON ALASKAN SHORES FROM 1989 ARE DEAD. ALMOST ALL EXXON VALDEZ CLEAN-UP WORKERS DIED IN THE FOLLOWING FEW YEARS AFTER DOING THE DIRTY WORK, FROM HEAVY EXPOSURE TO TOXICITY. B.P. CLEAN-UP WORKERS ALREADY ARE MADE VERY SICK. SOME WILL DIE SOON. $$$

    Last month in the interest of balance, a positive element was reported in the Crisis Coverage Report. The Corexit short 28-day half life might not be much consolation, since they are still spraying it into the Gulf, thus replenishing it rapidly. The methane and other poisonous gases might be the worse threat. The Exxon Valdez oil wreck on the Alaskan shores occurred in March 1989. Its story is long, twisted, devious, ugly, complete with murder, reversed court awards, ruined businesses, and ruined lives. Be sure that the workers probably signed waivers to eliminate compensation from the risk accepted. Many scientists have warned of the many health dangers from this oil spill, even without a toxic dispersant added to the mix. CNN has dutifully reported that the vast majority of those who worked to clean up the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska are now dead. To repeat, almost all of them are dead. More details, an expert on CNN cited that the life expectancy for those who worked to clean up the Exxon Valdez oil spill is only about 51 years. Considering the fact that the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is 30 times more extensive than the Exxon Valdez disaster, the clean-up crew will surely suffer perhaps thousands of deaths. Workers made sick are being replaced by new workers. The linked article shows an absolutely stunning news clip from CNN. Beware of any participation. This is why evacuation plans might be the next course before the general public is affected, apart from the clean-up crews.

    The facts are horrible. The Gulf of Mexico has turned into a Toxic Soup of crude oil, methane, benzene, hydrogen sulfide, other toxic gases, and poisonous chemical dispersants such as Corexit 9500. To be sure, some health damage has been seen already, but the reality is that the true health toll of this oil spill will not be known for decades. See the Business Insider article (CLICK HERE) and the YouTube video (CLICK HERE). Some news items reported:

    Already, a large number of workers cleaning up the BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico report that they are suffering from flu-like symptoms.
    According to another new report, exposure to the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico has resulted in 162 cases of illnesses reported to the Louisiana state health department.
    In addition, according to one local Pensacola news source, “Some 400 people have sought medical care for upper or lower respiratory problems, headaches, nausea, and eye irritation after trips to Escambia County beaches.”
    ◄$$$ BP OIL VOLCANO SPILL CONTAINS TOXIC AGENTS FOUND IN THE ECOSYSTEM ALREADY. THE MAIN CULPRIT IS PROPYLENE GLYCOL (SIMILAR TO CAR ANTI-FREEZE). MARINE LIFE WILL VANISH SOON FROM AN ASSORTMENT OF POISON AND TOXIC LEVELS OF GASES. $$$

    A motivated citizen James C Fox has provides a contribution on the toxic agents to the Gulf of Mexico. In his own words, “Oil and water samples were taken from both the Shores of Grand Isle and from 20 miles out [from the Louisiana coast]. The preliminary analysis was done at an academic analytical chemistry laboratory. Looking for the likely pollutants from the deep water Horizon Oil spill. It was focused on the detection of benzene and propylene glycol. Benzene and other highly toxic contaminants were very low. However, the concentration of propylene glycol was between 360 and 440 parts per million. Just 25 parts per million is know to kill most fish and propylene glycol is just one of many ingredients found in Corexit. In short, the Gulf is being poisoned by BP’s usage of the dispersants even after the EPA asked them to stop back in May. We are willing to provide ANY respected known laboratory these samples or provide them with more. This is very serious to all people and marine life in and around the Gulf.” The account here does not even mention the toxic threat to marine life from methane, which the Crisis Coverage Report mentioned last month. Cox should be careful, since he might risk arrest and stiff fines for his efforts. See the Zero Hedge article (CLICK HERE).

    ◄$$$ COREXIT IS A VERY NASTY CHEMICAL INTRODUCED BROADLY INTO THE GULF COAST ECOSYSTEM WITH FULL KNOWLEDGE OF ITS TOXIC POTENTIAL, WITH CLEAR INTENTION, EVEN AGAINST USGOVT URGING. THE CHEMICAL HAS INCREDIBLY HARMFUL EFFECTS TO THE HUMAN BODY. $$$

    Toxicologists have pitched in to provide details on the effects of Corexit to the human body, or any other creature with cellular structures for that matter. Corexit not only disperses the oil in water, it disperses and penetrates the entire human body thoroughly. It causes a rupture of red blood cells, and causes internal bleeding. It even goes so far as to allow crude oil to penetrate into the cells and every internal organ. Two toxicologists have come forward to claim that Corexit is much more harmful to human health and marine life than we have been told. Gulf toxicologist Dr Susan Shaw, Founder and Director of the Marine Environmental Research Institute, examined the chemicals present. Reporting to CNN, she talked about shrimpers throwing their nets into water. Water is then splashed onto the fishermen’s skin. One man experienced a headache that lasted three weeks, complete with heart palpitations, muscle spasms, and bleeding from the rectum. She explained how Corexit ruptures red blood cells, causes internal bleeding, and results in liver and kidney damage. She said, “Corexit is very toxic and goes right through skin. The reason this is so toxic is that these solvents [from dispersant] that penetrate the skin of anything that is going through the dispersed oil takes the oil into the cells, takes the oil into the organs& This stuff is toxic to every organ system in the body.”

    In a similar message, marine biologist and toxicologist Dr Chris Pincetich, who has an extensive background in testing the affects of chemicals on fish, says that Corexit disrupts cell membranes. He accuses the EPA toxicity testing for Corexit to be woefully inadequate, since EPA testing for mortality usually only requires a 96-hour time frame. His doctoral research found that fish that were alive at 96 hours after exposure to pesticide were dead at the two week mark, yet the EPA concluded the chemicals were considered non-lethal for the purposes of the test. Shaw and Pincetich are wildlife conservationists. The industry scientists working for Exxon and the manufacturer of Corexit itself admit that the stuff is toxic. They had better be careful for possible arrest and stiff fines, the reward for their warnings and work. See the Washington Blog article (CLICK HERE).
