This would be a great idea and I'd be 100% willing to help out in anyway as I live in the area.

The only major problem with this is, the "government"/police isn't allowing anyone near the site that isn't cleared by them first, news crews and just simple onlookers are shooed away and escorted by the coast guards away from the area and the beaches are all taped off and have high security, not in Fl yet thankfully.

I think it's sad that we are so hands off in our own world, just imagine the help/possibilities out there for this situation and so many similar situations.

its not the governments responsibility, it is BP's problem.

why would you want BP to get away with stealing your TAX money to cover up damage they have done?

best thing the government could do is file law suit suing BP over this, force them to clean it and ban them form business in United States.

the government does not have equipment to clean up a oil spill, this includes Navy and Coast Guard.

Bales of hay are 3.95 at walmart, and 4.95 at Home Depot.
I bought a fair many this year as I am playing with straw bale gardening.

Now that is oat straw. PINE straw is a whole lot cheaper.

There is a plume just below the surface, they say is 22miles x 6miles x 3,300feet. That equals 97,150,648,320,000 gallons of contamimated water. If the water is 10 parts per million oil, that equals 971,506,483 gallons of oil in the plume. 10 ppm is .00001 gallons of oil per gallon of liquid. That is quite a conservative estimate.

Yeah,we the people are the most numerous of those who use this stuff they draw up from the ground,so I guess in a way we are all responsible.

If more of us were more responsible,more of the time,fewer of these types of things would occur.

We are destroying our planet,and blaming others for it.

When disasters like this happen,it is no surprise the cost is plopped in our laps,because if we didn't demand so many resources to squander,there would be less demand,and less pressure to find those resources.

I would like to see the world go back to a state more like it was in the past.....

Example:Before anyone got hooked on cel-phones,nobody missed them,but now many people feel they cannot live without them.

Technology is not always aligned with our best interest.in the end.

What role does Deparment OF Homeland Security play in this major crisis? Shouldn't they be direcly involved if BP is powerless to stop and/or contain the leak?


Sure drag Department of Homeland Security into it. Their specialty is Fema camps and their first actions will be to declare an emergency, quarantine the area, and drag everyone in the state off for incarceration. The Fema camps are not big enough to hold the entire population at one time, so expect a lot of people to be going "through" them to a better place.

We the people allowed our government to become so corrupt that safety requirements were bribed away. In that regard it is our fault. With this level of corruption in government this has to be expected not just with oil wells but with other dangerous concerns like nuclear power plants.
If you think this kind of thing means that there are too many of us, then join the crowd. the depopulation experts will pay you money for pushing this kind of argument for them

Don't know if this has been posted, but you can send HAIR to the clean up effort. With 2 German Shepherds and shedding season, I've got some work to do!

Source



ALL salons, groomers, alpaca and llama fleece farmers, hairy individuals, & pet owners can sign up to donate hair, fur, fleece, feathers, nylons and funding...

We shampoo because hair collects oil. Why should millions of pounds of absorbant, natural, renewable hair, fur, fleece clippings go to waste every day? To participate in this fiber recycling mobilization phenomenon PLEASE SIGN UP HERE it's free & fast.
...
Thousands of boxes of hair, fur, fleece, feathers and nylons are coming in now by drop-offs and by USPS, FED EX, UPS from every city in North America. Even from donors in UK, France, Spain, Germany, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China and Brazil... Everyone wants to make this happen!

The Government & BP are only interested in playing political & legalistic games, while the southern coast of the US & all those fishing grounds are destroyed.

It would be really inspiring to see people doing what government & corporations can not & will not,

BUT they do have treasonous 'law' enforcement officials on their side who will be armed & very likely violent. These are neither nice nor decent nor constitutional humans.

Also if you can communicate with some local citizens they may be able to point you to places that are most in need of defensive or recovery actions. That way your efforts are more targeted & one won't waste time running around trying to find out where action can be useful. Honest scientists would help, unlike Steven Chu who is just a BP bought & paid whore.

It is one huge arsed mess.

That's a good idea. Tell you what. Why don't we all, as many as possible, send this idea to the White House and DEMAND for them to do this, and disseminate this info. Then anyone who has any contact with any tv stations, radio stations, or if you can search for the info on the stations close to your area and send them this information asking them to disseminate it we might get this rolling.

This would need a massive move, and we would need thousands of farmers to come forward with whatever form of hay they have. The only problem is that there might be many farmers that won't be able to give out their hay for free so BP should be buying, at a fair market price the hay from these farmers, and they should pay for the gasoline/diesel used to move the hay, to spread it around the coastal areas where the oil is close to the shore.

However, for the most part most of the oil won't get near the shore and instead will be transported by the North Atlantic Conveyor belt northwards and towards Europe.

There will be some oil that will get to coastal areas, and for that oil this idea will help quite a bit. However as i said most of the oil won't get anywhere close to coastal areas, and that oil will have to be picked up some other way.
