British Petroleum's Cleanup Just for Show?

That would explain why the media are being kept away from the cleanup crews, and the crews are forbidden to talk to the media.

From WKRG 6/24/10:

GULF SHORES, Alabama - Former oil clean-up worker Candi Warren says she signed up to make a difference, but soon found out the work of cleaning the beaches was all cosmetic. That's what she was told, she says.

Warren says she knew that when crews worked during the day, the tide and surf buried oil overnight. But they were forbidden to dig it up. She quit in disgust three weeks ago despite the $18 per hour pay.

She said she was told to only clean the surface of the sand, that this is all cosmetic. She was on a crew at Gulf State Park where tourists go. She says it has priority so as to make it look like the beaches are clean.

One thing we definitely do know is that British Petroleum lied about its oil skimming capabilities in its 2009 exploration plan. (Energy Tribune 5/20/10)
In associated documents filed with the U.S. Minerals Management Service, the company says that it would be able to skim 17.6 million gallons of oil a day from the Gulf in the event of a spill.

As of Tuesday, BP reported recovering 6 million gallons of oily water since the ongoing spill began four weeks ago. BP spokesman Tom Mueller said that only about 10 percent of the skimmed liquid was oil, which would amount to about 600,000 gallons of oil collected thus far.

British Petroleum lied before the disaster, when the disaster started at the beginning of this year, when the disaster became known to the public, and it continues to lie today. I just wonder what whoppers those scumbags are going to come up with next.

I am so sick of corporate media pundits, British Petroleum PR spammers, and rightist politicians defending British Petroleum. The company is disgraceful.

President Obama and Congress have gone way too easy on this evil corporation. Big Oil has way too much power in the country. Only making campaign financing public will stop this corrupt pandering to the most evil corporation in the history of the Earth.

  2. They just want this whole thing to be over so they can go back to their lives of yacht races, summer homes in fabulous locations, and gouging drivers at the pump. So what if it's cosmetic? Profits over people is the mantra of every corporation these days.

     
  3. What I can't understand is how they think they can hide it. They can't. And this cosmetic bullshit will make the anger even more palapable. Is it incompetence? Or have they been told not to worry by the powers that be? I don't know. But man, when that first hurricane hits...all bets are off.

  5. The reason their using 50yearold dispersant's is so it won't be seen.
    Oil then foams into the large plums.
