North America faces years of toxic oil rain from BP oil spill chemical dispersants

When you pour more than a million gallons of toxic chemical dispersants on top of an oil spill, it doesn’t just disappear. In this case, it moves to the atmosphere, where it will travel hundreds, if not thousands of miles from the site of the BP oil spill, in the form of toxic rain.

Gulf cleanup could continue beyond 2011

WASHINGTON, June 18 (Xinhua) -- Although it remains unknown when the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico can be plugged, efforts to clean up the massive BP oil spilled so far could continue until 2011 and well beyond, some experts said.

Rick Steiner, a conservation consultant and former professor at the University of Alaska, said efforts to clear the waters, marshes and beaches of oil could take until next year.

Disaster capitalists: Halliburton to make money off oil spill

Does a company that both builds oil rigs and cleans up oil spills have any motivation to prevent oil rig disasters?

Raw Story, June 18th 2010

That's the question some people in business and politics are asking themselves after Halliburton's purchase of an oil clean-up company 10 days before the Deepwater Horizon explosion that killed 11 workers and launched the worst oil spill in US history.

Gulf oil full of methane, adding new concerns

NEW ORLEANS — It is an overlooked danger in the oil spill crisis: The crude gushing from the well contains vast amounts of natural gas that could pose a serious threat to the Gulf of Mexico's fragile ecosystem.

Apocalypse Travel Plans - YOUR FIRST ROADBLOCK WILL BE YOUR LAST

In this article, John Kaminski dares to speak the unspeakable about the depth of the BP oil spill disaster. Many Americans are coming to his conclusions, but quickly eject these thoughts as fast as they enter.  America's symbol is no longer the eagle. It is the ostrich, who hides his head in the sand to make the reality in which he finds himself disappear. However, the sand on the Gulf of Mexico's shore is now toxic. The American ostrich has no place to hide.

Cash Strapped Greece Won't Balk at Russian Oil Pipeline

ATHENS, Greece (June 13) -- As the Gulf of Mexico spill continues, the damage is becoming ever more apparent. The catastrophe has cast a direct threat on plant and animal life, fragile coastlines and communities that have long made their living from the sea.

But as oil-soaked birds, turtles and mammals wash up on America's deep South, it is not just the locals there who are scared: Bulgarians now are balking at a $1.21 billion pipeline plan to bring Russian crude oil from the Black Sea to the Aegean.

News networks say access to oil spill ’slowly being strangled off’

NEW ORLEANS - Media organizations say they are being allowed only limited access to areas impacted by the Gulf oil spill through restrictions on plane and boat traffic that are making it difficult to document the worst spill in U.S. history.

The Associated Press, CBS and others have reported coverage problems because of the restrictions, which officials say are needed to protect wildlife and ensure safe air traffic.

Oil inspectors let companies fill in own audits, while one admitted getting high on meth, report says

Purposely Killing the Gulf?

The private, foreign International Monetary/Banking Cartel controls its puppets in Washington as it controls its oil company executives. And everything the Cartel does is anti-life, there are absolutely no exceptions; and their pretended Gulf oil clean-up is a glaring case in point.

Following an explosion on a BP-operated oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico last month, at least 210,000 gallons (5,000 barrels) of crude oil are thought to be spilling into the water every day.

THE OIL SPILL

Two to three months estimate on stopping this 'spill'. The Gulf will be DEAD. Florida will be DEAD. Most of the east coast will be DEAD. We have it under control folks. We're going to use heavy machinery, microbes, and dispersants (which are as deadly to marine and wildlife as the oil, by the way.
