“Oil-in-Water”-Gate

In a perfect world, I wouldn’t be writing about the BP oil spill any more.  There wouldn’t have been an explosion on April 20 because the rig workers would have been doing something more constructive.

Since there was an explosion (and hence the perpetual oil disaster), BP would have promptly started containing and cleaning up the oil before the oil reached the Gulf coast.  The federal government would have stepped in as soon as it appeared that BP wasn’t able to contain the oil.  Both BP and the government would have listened to suggestions that others had.

An accident has turned into a disaster.  BP and the federal government’s poor response has lead to “Oil-in-Water-Gate”  Globs of oil have polluted the shorelines.  Plumes under the gulf seem to be getting larger.  Not only do Americans know what  the word “plume” is, we’re using the word in everyday conversation.  This needs to stop.

BP’s cleanup seems to be limited to the oil they are siphoning near the leak and only because they are able to refine that oil and sell it.  Most of the people cleaning up the spills are local people who just happen to like clean coastlines where they live.  There is a minimal presence from BP and the government when it comes to cleanup.

I will be back in Rhode Island in two weeks and lay down the rest of the boom.  I would do it sooner, but it will take that long to get 40 miles (minus 300 feet), a ship large enough to carry the boom, and enough volunteers.  My biggest concern is that the oil might be in Rhode Island’s coast by then because not enough is being done now.

Here is a video on how the oil spill started:

  1. I don’t even like to read the news because of the lack of action for the clean-up. Experts have advised killing all the oil soaked animals and birds just to put them out of their misery. That in and of itself should damn everyone involved straight to Hell.
