BP among companies Obama excluded from US environmental oversight


www.rawstory.com

federal agencies granted exemptions to 96 percent of stimulus projects so far, according to documents obtained by the Center for Public Integrity

The energy companies BP, Westar Energy and Duke Energy, chemical manufacturer DuPont, and ethanol maker Didion Milling were among the companies to receive "categorical exclusions" from the National Environmental Policy Act.

Well, if there was ANY doubt that our gov and 'leaders' were completely bought and paid for by the mega corporations and oil industry, this ought to clear that up. lol

Pretty sad and disgusting at the same time.

But it also explains why our gov did NOTHING to these criminals while they destroyed the ocean, killed untold amounts of sea life, added in toxic dispersants which are affecting everyone's health around the area, and are continuing to cover up the degree of their destruction, unabated.

Welcome to the corporate states of America, where you can destroy the entire planet with the approval of the gov, as long as your lobbyists keep their pockets stuffed full of cash.

Ugh.

Yeah, no reason to keep an eye on them...

Anyone pumping oil from the bottom of the ocean needs oversight, Damn it!

Not only is this not surprising, it's something that i've been saying throughout the BP Spill, but everyone told me in response "stop watching fox News", and I said "I do not watch fox news".

Not only no oversight but Obama specifically told the coast guard not to allow reporters around the area all during the facade of talking tuff and saying he's going to put his heel on BP.

Wake Up People!
Star n Flag!

Not to be a Debbie Downer or a liberalzzzz but is there any other source for this? I googled this article and the relating key words "BP" "Categorical Exclusions" and can't find any corroborating evidence online. This honestly wouldn't surprise me and I'm searching this out because if it's true I wanted to spread it around. However I need more information or a more credible source than Rawstory.

[fixed it for you]



As part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, more commonly known as "the stimulus," officials granted over 179,000 exemptions from NEPA to recipients of federal stimulus funding. Senior officials say the exemptions were necessary to accelerate the pace of the stimulus plan and job creation.


Destroy the environment in favor of the economy.
Isn't that what the Republicans are supposed to be about?
Wasn't the environmentalist's objection over ANWAR, drilling off the coast of California, nuclear power, etc. exactly this?
