I do agree with you, to a point. We do pollute and that is something that needs help as well, but the oil and the dispersant cause much more damage
intermediately. It has already been shown.
I had a different mindset last week. I was furious with BP.
When I started to read and research on the effects of methane gas, toxic fumes from the dispersant, the media blackouts, the turning away of help
from other nations, workers getting sick, wildlife dying, land dying, loss of jobs and the lack in clean up efforts, it made me think.
I could be way off with this so please bare with me, I am not the best with words but our goverment allowed BP to drill right? Please correct me if I
am wrong. I could not find the facts. Also, how many times has Obama been down there? Correct me please if I am wrong... but hasn't it only been at
most 3 times in now 74 days?
It's pretty obvious BP has no control. So if they have no control.... why isn't more being done on our part? I understand that it is a process to
get trained etc. But, why are we letting BP call the shots? Money? The Coast Guard is down there but, why are they still allowing toxic dispersant to
fill up our Gulf and hold the oil under water?
Toxic rain/air will highly harm our people, land, crops and wildlife. (I can't figure out the youtube link sorry) Isn't that harm enough? Not to
mention all the jobs being lost.
Obama: Oil spill bill on BP, Chem spray to save nature?
Crop Damage already?:
This is a way I connected it, and I hope it makes sense to most people. So our country has laws on child neglect. DCF takes over if there is an
issue of neglect on the parents part...
"Federal legislation lays the groundwork for States by identifying a minimum set of acts or behaviors that define child abuse and neglect. Defines
child abuse and neglect as, at minimum:
Any recent act or failure to act on the part of a parent or caretaker which results in death, serious physical or emotional harm, sexual abuse or
exploitation; or act or failure to act which presents an imminent risk of serious harm."
BP is to clean this mess up (take care of), provide financially to take care of the coastal regions of the Gulf, right? Well like I said before, even
though they won't admit it, they can't do it on their own. Help is needed. Our own goverment is like the parent of the people, they make the laws,
allow us to do what we please, as long as we abide to them and follow the law. Then why is our goverment seeming to neglect the size of the
NEW ORLEANS — BP and the Obama administration face mounting complaints that foreign offers of equipment are being ignored and not enough use is
being made of the fishing boats and volunteers available to help clean up what may now be the biggest spill ever in the Gulf of Mexico. The Coast
Guard said there have been 107 offers of help from 44 nations, ranging from technical advice to skimmer boats and booms.
BP and Our Gov. need to step up and get a reality check. If they can't wake up we have to start making a stand and protect our country/Earth. I and I
am sure others love this earth/ this country and if people aren't doing their jobs (BP/Gov.) right, then we need people who can.
I don't want to place blame. But this whole situation is very suspicious. Both BP and our Goverment need to take more action. BP is already
showing neglect. Is our government? I hope no, but then they need to speak the truthandhelp
