Or is it that deals are being struck to divert the potential profits away from South America into the pockets of Big Oil?
Yes, deals were struck
3 weeks before the spill, Haliburton bought Boots & Coots,
An oil spill catastrophe company.
coincidence ??? hardly
Does it sound familiar ???
6 weeks before 9/11
Silverstein takes out terrorist insurance
on the towers.
And both of these investments
are making profits.
Not to mention that Haliburton was involved
in another oil spill in Australia in 2009.
Where tanked stocks of PTTEP were gobbled up
on the Thailand Stock Market.
Coincidence?? not hardly
we're just waiting to see who buys
BP stock when it hits rock bottom.
And you will find your hostile take-over conspiracy.
Follow the money !!!

Yeah the solution is called hay, there is no need for some special clean up product It grows wild and is cultivated all over the earth and proven to work and has been used in the past, no EPA approval needed. See below thread.
My understanding was that in the quantities required, it would deplete the amount that is used as feed for livestock, cattle etc?

All you need is a skimmer to suck the water into a centrifugal chamber, as the oil has a different viscosity it will seperate at a particular height in the chamber. You can then funnel that layer out seperate the oil from the water and pump the water back out into the ocean.
No chemicals, no hair, no hay bails. No fancy machines.
Suck it out at a massive rate, seperate it. Pipe the clean water back in.

The use of treated material absorbs about 40 times it weight in oil, far exceeding existing commercially available remediation materials. Because water is completely rejected by the ISC material, the oil can be recovered for use, a substantial benefit in oil spill cleanup efforts. The new oil cleanup solution uses patented Self-Assembled Monolayer (SAMs) technology. The technology recently was announced and is of extreme importance. This highly effective material shall help mitigate the environmental and health impacts caused by the approximate 3,000 worldwide annual oil spills.
The marriage of nanoparticulates and SAMs provides direct access to a new class of nanostructured hybrid materials that are very useful as environmental sorbent materials, structural components, coatings, wetting control, friction and lubrication control, adhesion, bio-related applications (e.g. pharmaceutical controlled release, and biomedical implant materials), sensing
The Voraxial Separator is fitted with a patented non-clog, low-shear rotary assembly designed to create a vortex in the fluids flowing through the separator. By this action, heavier materials (such as solids) are forced to the outside of the vortex while lighter materials (such as oil) are drawn to form the central core of the vortex, thereby creating separated flow streams. A specially designed manifold is utilized at the exit of the separation chamber to collect the separated streams.

This is what my most recent thread is all about, we already have boats with a 1000 tonne capacity:
Why not just use both hay and boats sucking the oil up. And everything in between....
