“We are working with our state and local partners to mitigate any further environmental impact ,” said Capt. Jonathan Burton, the federal on-scene coordinator for the response. Comforting words, eh?
Since the Obama administration bowed to Pollutocrat wishes, isn’t the puzzle how to hide the source of the catastrophe?
With anti-nuclear sentiment on the rise, Emperor Fossil wants to maintain an increase in dirty fossil fuel profits. That means avoiding any generalization of public disaffection. The Pollutocrats worry that environmental crisis after crisis might stimulate a push for clean, renewable energy despite their best efforts at corruption.
“More oil is spilled from the network of terminals, pipes, pumping stations and oil platforms every year [in the Niger Delta] than has been lost in the Gulf of Mexico.” And, does Big Oil let those people do anything about it. No. So, Bianca Jager, how come residents of the Gulf of Mexico think they are someone special?
After NRDC Media Coordinator Rocky Kistner relayed report of an oil spill near the Deepwater drilling site in Gulf of Mexico, there was a remarkable silence about it. A HuffPo update states “the Coast Guard has confirmed that oil is not coming from the Deepwater Horizon.” An investigation into reports of large oil slicks is continuing.
(Now is that an investigation into how the reports got out despite their best surveillance, or an investigation into the source of the oil?)
