Thank You for attending this weeks debriefing, we’d like to begin with the fact that Obama is the most oil-friendly political master that has ever existed… far more oil friendly than even Bush. In the last few weeks, Obama has handed out dozens of permissions for oil corporations to continue their corrupted operations. Meanwhile…
The media is generally blocked…
Wetlands are utterly fucked….
The deep sea is destroyed of all life, - admitted by even BP…
The well continues to blow at higher and higher rates…
And there are apparently OTHER blowouts around the one known well…
This is all in addition to the fact that this event may have been by design within BP…
Plus… BP is currently burning oil enmasse off the coast of our beloved Mississippi Delta…
I’d like to note that KENT WELLS has emerged more and more in the news, he’s a Vice President with BP, and I would consider him a hardcore criminal. DO NOT give in to this asshole’s smooth talk. He is a criminal and deserves to be severely punished for his slicko attitude!
“A category III hurricane with winds between 111 and 130 miles per hour could blow coastal water as much as 12 feet above normal, according to a Coast Guard hurricane readiness plan.
Such storm surges “may carry oil into the coastline and inland as far as the surge reaches,” according to an information sheet from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which forecasts weather in addition to other duties. NOAA predicts a 70 percent chance that 14 to 23 named storms, including as many as seven major hurricanes, will form in the Atlantic in the next six months. The seasonal average is 11 named storms and two major hurricanes.”
“A prominent Houston attorney with a long record of winning settlements from oil companies says he has new evidence suggesting that the Deepwater Horizon’s top managers knew of problems with the rig before it exploded last month, causing the worst oil spill in US history. Tony Buzbee, a lawyer representing 15 rig workers and dozens of shrimpers, seafood restaurants, and dock workers, says he has obtained a three-page signed statement from a crew member on the boat that rescued the burning rig’s workers. The sailor, who Buzbee refuses to name for fear of costing him his job, was on the ship’s bridge when Deepwater Horizon installation manager Jimmy Harrell, a top employee of rig owner Transocean, was speaking with someone in Houston via satellite phone. Buzbee told Mother Jones that, according to this witness account, Harrell was screaming, “Are you fucking happy? Are you fucking happy? The rig’s on fire! I told you this was gonna happen.”
Whoever was on the other end of the line was apparently trying to calm Harrell down. “I am fucking calm,” he went on, according to Buzbee. “You realize the rig is burning?” READ HERE.

The rate of the gusher is apparently increasing exponentially…
WHAT IN THE HELL IS GOING ON!?
“The Deepwater Horizon is not the only well leaking oil into the Gulf of Mexico for the last month.
A nearby drilling rig, the Ocean Saratoga, has been leaking since at least April 30, according to a federal document.
While the leak is decidedly smaller than the Deepwater Horizon spill, a 10-mile-long slick emanating from the Ocean Saratoga is visible from space in multiple images gathered by Skytruth.org, which monitors environmental problems using satellites.”
THE FOLLOWING IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT FOR RESIDENTS OF THE GULF AREA AS WELL AS CLEANUP PERSONNEL. READ THE LINKS ALSO. TAKE CARE! BP’S POISONS CAN EASILY KILL.
“The compounds in different TPH fractions affect the body in different ways. Some of the TPH compounds, particularly the smaller compounds such as benzene, toluene, and xylene (which are present in gasoline), can affect the human central nervous system. If exposures are high enough, death can occur. Breathing toluene at concentrations greater than 100 parts per million (100 ppm) for more than several hours can cause fatigue, headache, nausea, and drowsiness. When exposure is stopped, the symptoms will go away. However, if someone is exposed for a long time, permanent damage to the central nervous system can occur. One TPH compound (n-hexane) can affect the central nervous system in a different way, causing a nerve disorder called “peripheral neuropathy” characterized by numbness in the feet and legs and, in severe cases, paralysis. This has occurred in workers exposed to 500–2,500 ppm of n-hexane in the air. Swallowing some petroleum products, such as gasoline and kerosene, causes irritation of the throat and stomach, central nervous system depression, difficulty breathing, and pneumonia from breathing liquid into the lungs. The compounds in some TPH fractions can also affect the blood, immune system, liver, spleen, kidneys, developing fetus, and lungs. Certain TPH compounds can be irritating to the skin and eyes.”
There really is NO good news coming out of the Gulf right now. This is perhaps the worst: evidence of more immense undersea oil plumes miles from the Deep Horizon site. We can only speculate that this is either a much larger release from the well we know of, signs that the well-head actually blew out, or a completely different leak. - Take your pick. Remember oil is heavier than water, so 90-some percent of this toxic shit is deep underwater, not visible (yet) from the surface.

COINCIDENCE? These are starting to really add up!
“Tony Hayward cashed in about a third of his holding in the company one month before a well on the Deepwater Horizon rig burst, causing an environmental disaster.
Mr Hayward, whose pay package is £4 million a year, then paid off the mortgage on his family’s mansion in Kent, which is estimated to be valued at more than £1.2 million.”
“Be careful where you click, especially if you’re looking for news on the BP oil spill.
BP, the very company responsible for the oil spill that is already the worst in U.S. history, has purchased several phrases on search engines such as Google and Yahoo so that the first result that shows up directs information seekers to the company’s official website.”

“But this is the seventh attempt to stop the well since the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig exploded and burned on April 20, six weeks ago, and all the others have ended in disappointment. Which raised a question: What if nothing worked at all? What if the oil just kept coming out of the ground until it stopped naturally? How long would it take? What would be the consequences? The quick answer is that they would be severe — though nobody is quite sure how much oil might escape because nobody, even at BP, is sure how much is down there.” Read the rest here.

This is a TED lecture with Brian Skerry on our undersea world.
“At least one of the eleven men that died in the initial explosion that triggered a disaster in the Gulf expressed concerns about safety practices on the oil rig. Transocean toolpusher Jason Anderson told his wife, Shelly, that he was concerned about BP’s safety practices on the rig. Anderson was so worried about an accident that he spent his last trip home getting his affairs in order.” DAMN! Read the rest here.

1) BP owns Arco Gas Stations. Pay an Arco a visit and let motorists know that by getting fuel at Arco they support criminal organizations like BP.
Here is the Arco Station Locator.
2) Did any of your local/state politicians support offshore drilling? Were they yelling “drill, baby, drill” like ruthless morons? Most congressmen voted for the return of offshore drilling in 2008. They sure are quiet now aren’t they?
Do a search on your state’s sleazy politicians and if they voted for drilling, give them the gift of oil with a favorite BP brand like Castrol.
DEMAND A MORATORIUM ON ALL OFFSHORE DRILLING.
3) Start tracking BP/TransOcean/Halliburton executives. Send as much info as you can find to GulfTribunal@gmail.com, and report any of their planned appearances so that Gulf Tribunal can get the word out to other action groups and the public.
4) Do you live on the Gulf Coast? Call and write your local judges and sheriffs demanding they press charges against all BP executives. The “Most Wanted” page on this site may be of help.
