I am beginning to wonder about all these efforts to 'inform' the public that this is not a big deal.
No one will answer with any specificity about anything.... yet some are certain this is 'small potatoes'.
Of course, those who don't live near the shore, nor depend on her as a primary source of income can be forgiven a lack of empathy. But unless you
have had to live with the consequences, I am not so sure anyone should blithely marginalize the concern expressed by those who have and will.
Move this 'minor leak' off the coast of UK and let's see how 'small' it is.
If you are a person who believes whatever the MSM tells them, and are innocently posting whatever the AP and Reuters shoves into your mind, I feel for
you. After all, this is a 'National Security Event' and all media pertaining to it is centrally controlled. If you are posting this to intentionally
misguide... well then...
This 'spill' is estimated (very quietly) to be in the 100mil-200mil gallons already. There is a chasm down there pumping oil at 60,000psi. Time will
tell the truth no matter how much this story is buried and scrubbed. Believe me, I wish I was wrong and you right. But the data overwhelmingly points
to a massive coverup and EPIC disaster.
I was being sarcastic with my post... Also bear in mind that this was from May 7th, so at the time, perhaps it wasn't so bad. But I agree, This
thing should be covered WAY MORE in the MSM, with actual facts and not opinions based on false information.
I live in Louisiana and I work for an insurance claims adjusting company. Currently we have adjusters spread across the gulf states and have signed 6
months to one year leases for temporary offices. No one here is taking this lightly. I think the MSM is down playing this to the rest of the world.
Just my opinion, I haven't actually been in the gulf to look at the spill for myself.
