In case you are wondering, why yes, the Deepwater Horizon is spilling oil again:
Oil is once again fouling the Gulf of Mexico around the Deepwater Horizon well, which was capped a little over a year ago.
Tuesday afternoon, hundreds of small, circular patches of oily sheen dotted the surface within a mile of the wellhead. With just a bare sheen present over about a quarter-mile, the scene was a far cry from the massive slick that covered the Gulf last summer.
Floating in a boat near the well site, Press-Register reporters watched blobs of oil rise to the surface and bloom into iridescent yellow patches. Those patches quickly expanded into rainbow sheens 4 to 5 feet across.
Each expanding bloom released a pronounced and pungent petroleum smell. Most of the oil was located in a patch about 50 yards wide and a quarter of a mile long.
Because playing nice with the least safety conscious energy company in the western world is such a winning strategy.
Not feeling that “Audacity of Hope”.
There is a difference between dealing with people who merely disagree with you, and dealing with evil ratf%$#s who will destroy everything for a few pennies.
BP’s upper management is clearly the latter, and dealing with them as the former just makes things worse.
