Coast Guard Tells Louisiana Residents Oil Spill is not an Environmental Disaster


www.allgov.com

Two days before the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) announced that the Deepwater Horizon accident had easily eclipsed the Exxon Valdez disaster as the nation’s worst-ever oil spill, U.S. Coast Guard representative Edward Stanton downplayed the seriousness of the matter at a town hall meeting in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana.

“I don’t consider this an environmental disaster,” Stanton told an audience of concerned fishermen and local residents. “But it is an economic disaster.”

I can't believe that a Coast Guard rep would make this statement at a town hall meeting. :shk:

What would qualify as disastrous in his playbook?

Contrast his statement to BP's acknowledgement of the disaster and one doesn't get the feeling that they are on top of this situation..

It is easy to understand the local frustration.

Probably a desk jockey PR officer who's only ever been offshore on a fishing trip and had his government approved statement to read to the assembled peasants.

What a freaking idiot.

He should be fired. Its because of people like him that things are out of control.

If people knew from the start how bad this was, the government would have stepped in due to the massive and overwhelming outcry from its citizens.

Coming from someone who has a degree in environmental sciences (me), I will give my expert opinion: this IS an environmental disaster. One doesn't need a degree to see that, but it seems one needs to be a government official to deny it.
