Alabama port changes ship paths to avoid Gulf of Mexico oil spill

MOBILE, Ala. -- The Alabama State Port Authority put out a notice to mariners this morning advising ships to approach the mouth of Mobile Bay from the southeast, after a ship sailed for Texas Thursday night and encountered oil going southwest from the bay. "It adds a few miles to the voyage, but it's a heck of a lot cheaper than cleaning the hull," said docks director Jimmy Lyons.

How the Disaster in the Gulf Could Have Been Prevented: BP's Terrible Record on Environmental and Human Health

April 30, 2010 BP, the global oil giant responsible for the fast-spreading spill in the Gulf of Mexico that will soon make landfall, is no stranger to major accidents. In fact, the company has found itself at the center of several of the nation's worst oil and gas–related disasters in the last five years.

halliburton isn't even American anymore - their headquarters are in Dubai.

This whole thing is a travesty.

They say they need the winds to calm down to help contain it.

Time for a thought experiment?

I keep thinking the same thing. Except it's Mrs. Nature
To each his/her own, right?

I just keep thinking what a bunch of a-holes this makes us look like. By "us" I mean humans and the way we don't seem to care about how our insatiable need for things like oil and nonrenewable resources is to the detriment of our environment. I'm not talking about global warming. I'm just talking about the condition of our air, soil, and waters that no one can deny is because of our own ignorance.

I keep seeing visions of oil soaked birds, otters, and thousands of dead fish. **sigh**

Out of curiosity I thought I would search to see if any psychics saw this disaster coming and sure enough I found one:

Nikki - Psychic to the Stars 2010 Predictions

"Tragedy at an oil rig."
"An oil spill destroys the Mississippi River."

Not that I believe in psychics but this is usually a first response of mine to major stories and to her credit she called it - especially the Mississippi River part.

EPA establishes website on BP's Gulf of Mexico oil spill

As part of the ongoing federal response to the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, EPA today established a website to inform the public about the spill’s impact on the environment and the health of nearby residents. The website – www.epa.gov... -- will contain data from EPA’s ongoing air monitoring along with other information about the agency’s activities in the region.

Big, messy spill exceeds cleanup capacity- experts

April 30 (Reuters) - Several different technologies exist to clean up oil spills, including booms to contain them, dispersants to break up the oil and skimmers to scoop it up.

Oil Spill Impact Could Be Worse Than Valdez and Katrina

In what could become a more damaging oil spill than the Exxon [XOM 67.77 -0.89 (-1.3%) ] Valdez more than 20-years ago, the news out of Louisiana is getting worse by the hour. High winds and rising surf are forcing the oil to shore more quickly and over a wider space. Florida has declared a disaster area, and there is little doubt that it will affect Mississippi and Alabama, too.

Rescuers Cleaning 1st Oil-Coated Bird In Louisiana

FORT JACKSON, La. (AP) - Rescue crews are cleaning the first bird found coated with oil that’s been spewing from a sunken rig in the Gulf of Mexico. Workers with Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research, which is based in Delaware, are using Dawn blue dishwashing soap to scrub the oil off the young northern gannet. The commercially available detergent is commonly used to clean animals. The rescue center says the bird was found offshore, not on the shoreline.

Oh, man....I really wish I could go down there and help. Animals are my soft spot. Call me a sissy, but animals in need just tugs at my heart strings and makes me so sad. Their so innocent in matters like these and don't know any better. If I hadn't have just bought a plane ticket to go see my Dad in a couple months, I would tell my job they will have to do without me for a week or so and buy a plane ticket down there. Can't do two plane tickets and two weeks off in a couple months time.

The US has been hit by a second oil rig incident just days after a rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, threatening an environmental disaster.

Second drilling rig overturns in Louisiana

HOUSTON, April 30 (Reuters) - The U.S. Coast Guard said Friday it was responding to another oil drilling rig accident near Morgan City, Louisiana. The "mobile inland drilling unit" overturned in the Charenton navigational channel south of U.S. Highway 90 at Morgan City. (Reporting by Bruce Nichols)

It sounds like the second one is not a disaster, just being transported to the scrapyard by a barge and it overturned. No injuries even.

Coast Guard: Oil drilling rig overturns en route to La. scrap yard; no leaks detected

MORGAN CITY, La. (AP) — Officials say an oil drilling rig on its way to a scrap yard has overturned in Louisiana.

No injuries have been reported. The overturned rig is unrelated to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico that threatens the coast's fragile ecosystem.

The Coast Guard said Friday that the rig overturned about 80 miles west-southwest of New Orleans.

It can carry about 20,000 gallons of diesel fuel, but Coast Guard officials did not know how much fuel was on board. Coast Guard investigators say no fuel leaks have been found.

Does anyone know if there was any oil spilled in the second incident?

I would think they have precautions in place before the move for such an event.

But after this major spill, I'm beginning to wonder if anyone behind the scenes is competent. I mean could they be moving any slower to contain the spill?

Meanwhile minimum wage Bubba, on the clean-up crew, is getting his pyro on and probably making things a lot worse, by lighting the freakin' slick on fire!

What are things coming to? This is going to be really bad folks..

Yes, I just read about this. I am highly suspicious of the oil spill. The off shore drilling plan is essentially dead in the water, if you will.
