I was reading up on the current situation on the oil spill and i’ve noticed that every day that the oil spill is slowly mutating into something else.
It seems that BP is trying there damnedest to hide the severity of this oil spill. On may 20th i started to notice the whitewash with bp using the national guard to block reporters from beaches. There’s just a huge ass attempt to hide this spill, I have said this already but, its getting fucking ridiculous. I am sure in the states closer to the oil spill people are more aware, In the north-east US its like a passing knowledge of the spill.
Even Sarah Palin is getting in on the action, From her twitter account she posted
Hey wackowoman of the west. .. we’ve not forgot your little comment.
another comment from sarah on her facebook page.
Extreme deep water drilling is not the preferred choice to meet our country’s energy needs, but your protests and lawsuits and lies about onshore and shallow water drilling have locked up safer areas. It’s catching up with you. The tragic, unprecedented deep water Gulf oil spill proves it.
We need permission to drill in safer areas, including the uninhabited arctic land of ANWR. It takes just a tiny footprint – equivalent to the size of LA’s airport – to tap America’s rich and plentiful oil and gas up north. ANWR’s drilling footprint is like a postage stamp on a football field.
Uhh drilling platforms have the same footprint .. Not to mention the SECOND bp spill thats currently in the state of alaska as we speak. So ms palin .. the sane people of America would like to say a big fuck off to your drilling on land is safer with ….
On Tuesday, Pump Station 9, at Delta Junction on the 800-mile pipeline, busted. Thousands of barrels began spewing an explosive cocktail of hydrocarbons after “procedures weren’t properly implemented” by BP operators, say state inspectors “Procedures weren’t properly implemented” is, it seems, BP’s company motto.
Few Americans know that BP owns the controlling stake in the trans-Alaska pipeline; but, unlike with the Deepwater Horizon, BP keeps its Limey name off the Big Pipe.
Its just funny, has she not looked at the window at “russia” lately to see a spill from BP in her OWN backyard? I know the Alaskan spill is much smaller, but how is it “Safer”?
