The Justice Department continues to impose stifling restrictions on independent scientists seeking to study the catastrophic effects of Gulf
spill, according to one scientist.
In an opinion piece at The Scientist, ecosystem biologist Linda Hooper-Bui explains her frustration with corporations and government bureaucracies,
both of which have been preventing independent scientists like her from accessing the Gulf of Mexico.
"I want to collect data to answer scientific questions absent a corporate or governmental agenda. I won't collect data specifically to support the
government's lawsuit against BP nor will I collect data only to be used in BP's defense," says Hooper-Bui.
But doing so has been a difficult task.
In May, a US Fish an Wildlife officer took away ant samples from some of Hooper-Bui's PhD students because their project had not been approved by
Incident Command, a joint program of BP and federal agencies.Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
This is hardly surprising and if it's happening to her, how many more is it happening to, that don't want to speak out or are afraid of retrobution
or their funding being pulled? This whole oil-spill cover-up is very telling and points to something fishy (no pun intended). Sadly, it seems that the
MSM is in on it, as usual so the American people will stay unaware, even though it is happening right in front of our faces.
It is maddening how obvious and blatant our government is becomming in working against our interests, yet the American people fail to see it when it
is slapping them in the face.
