It Can Get Worse

Gulf Gusher symbolWe now have a tropical depression added to the mix of problems in the Gulf. If it looks like it is going anywhere near the Well from Hell, they are going to be forced to shut down operations, including the relief well drilling, and wait it out.

Rick Outzen admits what some of us have known: We have lost our beach. He was shown that picking up the stuff on top may make things look better, but there is plenty of oil just below the sand. The sand acts like a filter, and even oil that you can’t see gets trapped as it passes through the sand. BP has no intention of cleaning up anything but the most obvious oil, which is why it spent so much on dispersants.

A lot of people [Corrente, Ellroon] are linking to the video of Kindra Arensen, but Susie’s version, What’s Going On In The Gulf, includes a transcript, and separate CNN video from an earlier interview she did.

You will note that Ms Arensen gave Fox News a free tour, but Fox hasn’t reported on it. It’s pretty interesting doing a search on “Kindra Arensen Fox” as all of these rightwing blogs keep saying things like “Fox should be all over this”, or “Beck should cover this”. Not going to happen.

Ms Arensen tells you what you should have figured out for yourselves – BP is out to spend the absolute minimum it can get away with, and couldn’t care less about what happens to anyone but themselves and their shareholders.

I guess we can start calling it the Sump of Mexico.
