ORLANDO -- After seeing the heartbreaking pictures of animals soaked in oil coming from the Gulf, some Orlando residents said they had to take a stand.
Pelicans were found covered in oil and trying to fly, but they couldn’t because their wings were dripping in oil.
Some birds and even dolphins are now showing up dead along the shore.
Members of Seize BP say they’re fed up, and they’re taking action all across the country next week.
Members of the group say they are not against the local BP gas stations, but they are going after the big guys.
Seize BP: Campaign Statement and Petition
The government of the United States must seize BP and freeze its assets, and place those funds in trust to begin providing immediate relief to the working people throughout the Gulf states whose jobs, communities, homes and businesses are being harmed or destroyed by the criminally negligent actions of the CEO, Board of Directors and senior management of BP.
BP's Materially False and Misleading Statements
BP filed a 52-page exploration plan and environmental impact analysis with the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Minerals Management Service for the Deepwater Horizon well, dated February 2009, which repeatedly assured the government that it was "unlikely that an accidental surface or subsurface oil spill would occur from the proposed activities." In the filing, BP stated over and over that it was unlikely for an accident to occur that would lead to a giant crude oil spill causing serious damage to beaches, mammals and fisheries and that as such it did not require a response plan for such an event.
BP’s executives are thus either guilty of making materially false statements to the government to obtain the license, of consciously misleading a government that was all too ready to be misled, and/or they are guilty of criminal negligence. At a bare minimum, their representations constitute gross negligence. Whichever the case, BP must be held accountable for its criminal actions that have harmed so many.
Iran Catching Up in Hydrogen Production Posted on July 28th, 2009 by admin George W. Bush called Iran an “Axis of Evil”. And there is no doubt U. S relations with that country have been strained at best especially after the most recent questionable election. But, one of the positive qualities of researchers and scientists working within a global economy is that politics plays less of a role that solutions. For instance, near Tabriz, Iran, scientists at the Color Pars Company have succeeded in producing hydrogen that is 99.99 percent pure. The scientists are using electrolysis to create the high grade hydrogen which can be used in medical instrumentation and fuel cell cars. High purity hydrogen such as this is not needed in cars with internal combustion engines. But, because of poisoning and degradation in fuel cells is directly related to their longevity, high purity hydrogen is needed to extend the life of the FC. The scientists are using high pressure electrolysis (HPE) in order to crack that water into hydrogen and oxygen more efficiently. At a time when many nations are using their fossil fuel resources as political footballs its refreshing to hear a case where green energy is more about the science than it is the politics.

Can't you see? It all makes perfect sense. Expressed in dollars and cents. Pounds shillings and pence. It all makes perfect sense.....
