Obama administration backpedals on oil spill response


The administration, together with BP, has consistently refused to provide an accurate estimate of the volume of oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico from the Deepwater Horizon site. On Thursday a BP spokesperson admitted that the spill was leaking more than 5,000 barrels a day, the previous estimate used by the government and BP.... Based on a section of video released last week, scientists estimated that about 70,000 barrels of oil were spilling out daily, 14 times the official estimate.


Clearly we're seeing how 20 year old technology is not equipped to handle an oil spill of this size. Offshore oil will remain a dangerous endeavour until our disaster response technology is updated, but they'll do everything they can to defend offshore drilling. I wonder, how much did BP pay to have the Obama administration in their pockets? Change? Hardly, just the status quo.
