Just another reason to invest in developing biofuels!

One more in a lost list of BP lies. I guess this up side is Big Pharma can develop a new drug for this cancer. I'm so disgusted with all the all the TV ad's about how wonderful things are in the Gulf, we will pay for this for generations. If you want the full back ground story on BP and all of the oil spills that are not really "accidents" then read, "Vultures Picnic" by Greg Palast, buy it - get it at the library, but read it.

Thanks Judy, Mother Jones is always a good source.

I agree with Michael H - how come this doesn't seem to fall on anyone's shoulders? So they all sleep at night thinking they've cleaned up the mess when in reality - they've added to it! This really freaks me out. At a time when EPA is telling us that all sorts of contaminated water is safe, what kind of story are they going to try to pull off on this one?

Good points, everyone. The PR is just disgusting for al the oil/gas companies. Since I live in Nebraska, I get to see the B.S. about the Keystone XL, and I hear Lee Terry whining about it periodically. I have definitely been wanting to read Palast's book, Kit. I'll get around to it sometime soon.

Thanks. Excellent points made. The effects of the spill will be with us for a long time.

BP should be made to come collect their oil spill. All of it. Then they should be barred from ever doing business in North America again.

Well, that title definitely caught my attention.

The pictures are freightening, and, to think we are drilling in our oceans all over the world.
Surely, these 'accidents' have happened many other places, but, we don't hear about them.

How much danage can our planet take, before it rebels?

Note that in the Arctic, Toxin dispersants remain part of their ineffective plan for inevitable spills. We seen the horrific suffering and death of wildlife...and the environment. The corporations are not going to change. It's up to us to change them. Until we stop investing in them through 401Ks, mutual funds, IRAs, and other stocks and investments, Big Oil will not take notice. That goes for all the other BIG industries as well. Monsanto comes to mind.

Clearly investing in any of the BIGs is investing in our own demise. There's not security in that...but a retirement/survival (if you reach it) in a toxified world.
