(8NewsNow) – BP’s Environmental Mess in Nevada

New figures show BP Oil is falling short of what it promised it could do to clean up spilled oil in the Gulf of Mexico. BP told federal regulators it would be able to collect nearly half a million barrels of oil each day in the event of a spill, but has managed to gather a mere 900 barrels per day since the spill began 77 days ago.

The Gulf might seem like a long way from Nevada, but our state has also been on the receiving end of BP promises, and they didn’t work out well either. Read More Here

(WashingtonsBlog) – Government Trying to Sweep Size of Oil Spill Under the Rug, Just As It Tries to Sweep the Economic Crisis, 9/11 and Everything Else Under the Rug

As I previously pointed out, the Gulf oil spill is very similar to 9/11, because – in both cases – the responders helping with rescue and clean up were getting sick … but were told they don’t need any safety gear. And see this.

In addition, the government is keeping scientists away from “ground zero” of the oil spill and – for that reason – scientists cannot accurately measure the size of the oil spill. Read More Here

(BPSlick) – Video: Citizen Journalist Denied Access to Alabama Beach

While the Obama administration continues to say the national policy is that no American journalist can be restricted from access to oiled beaches along the Gulf of Mexico, contractors for the British Petroleum oil giant seem not to have gotten the word.

BP executives must be thinking that since they broke the Gulf, they now own it.

Will the press and the American people and the administration stand for it? Continue reading

In the middle of June it was reported that BP hired private security contractor to keep the media away from sites the transnational corporation claims it is cleaning. “BP, in a move destined to go down as one of the bestest public relations moves ever, has apparently hired a private security company to help to keep pesky reporters from covering the unfolding catastrophe on the beaches of the Gulf Coast,” Adam Rawnsley writes for Wired.

(Colonel6) – Breaking: Obama shuts down 33% of the country’s oil refining capacity

While Obama was unsuccessful at putting a moratorium on oil drilling, he was able to accomplish the same thing by putting a stranglehold on oil refining which accomplishes the same thing. With 1/3rd of the country’s oil refining gone what do you think this will do to the economy? This was the inherent threat that Obama had presented for months. Either give him Cap and Trade or we will shut everything down through the EPA. Read More Here

BP Oil Gusher

Video: Corexit Is Killing The Gulf Part II

Corexit 9500, four times more toxic than crude oil, is one of the most poisonous dispersants ever developed, and is up to 20 times more toxic than other dispersants, and only half as effective.

When Corexit 9500, with its 2.61 ppm toxicity level, is combined with the warm waters of the Gulf much of it will transition into a gaseous state that will be absorbed into clouds, to be released as toxic rain upon all of the Eastern United States: All without any effective or real objections from the Obama administration.

(NaturalNews) – The Coming Gulf Coast Firestorm: How the BP oil catastrophe could destroy a major U.S. city – Mike Adams

It’s hurricane season in the Atlantic, and that means Mother Nature could be whipping up fierce storms and sending them charging into the Gulf Coast any day now. In a normal hurricane season, that’s bad enough all by itself… remember Katrina? But now there’s something even more worrisome in the recipe: There’s oil in the water.

So what happens when a Katrina-class hurricane comes along and picks up a few million gallons of oil, then drops that volatile liquid on a major U.S. city like Galveston or New Orleans?

Now, before we pursue this line of thinking any further, let’s dismiss the skeptics out there who think oil can’t drop from the sky because oil doesn’t evaporate. Actually, if you look at the history of hurricanes and storms, you’ll find thousands of accounts of lots of things that don’t evaporate nonetheless falling out of the sky. The phrase “raining cats and dogs” it’s entirely metaphor, you know: There are documented accounts of all sorts of things raining down from the sky: Fish, frogs, large balls of ice, and so on.

(StPetersburgTims) – Despite concerns, dispersant use continues on gulf oil spill

A month ago the Environmental Protection Agency ordered BP to stop spraying so much dispersant on oil gushing from the Deepwater Horizon well and to find a less toxic alternative to the chemical it was using.

BP is still spraying the same stuff — under the brand name Corexit — that led to EPA concerns in May. Although it has decreased the total amount used, BP has exceeded the recommended daily level of 15,000 gallons sprayed beneath the surface of the Gulf of Mexico. And so far, neither BP nor the EPA has found an effective but less toxic alternative to Corexit. Read More Here

The day has finally come for the literal confrontation with the Corporation-States of the planet. When the Deepwater-Horizon project did what it was supposed to do in order to make all that much more money for the criminals; by massively failing to bring in their well in the Gulf of Mexico-the final chapter in relations between the hostile elites and the rest of us took center stage.

“New York: In what is looming as another public-relations predicament for Goldman Sachs, the banking giant admitted that “it made a substantial financial bet against the Gulf of Mexico” one day before the sinking of an oil rig in that body of water.

The new revelations came to light after government investigators turned up new emails from Goldman employee Fabrice “Fabulous Fab” Tourre in which he bragged to a girlfriend that the firm was taking a ‘big short’ position on the Gulf. Continue reading
