Nobody seems to know what to do about the real mess from British Petrolium in the Gulf of Louisiana and Mississippi, and probably Alabama and Georgia and Florida.
This whole mess would not be as bad as it is, if BP had told us the truth from the beginning of this global, yes global, disaster to our world. BP gives us a different answer every day on how much oil is escaping from the ocean floor. They say they know how to fix this. Hogwash, they have no idea about what is going on. They just keep drawing it out with untruths, lies.
Wake up, people. Give BP no alternative. It's time to send in the United Nations to break up BP. Yes, dismantle the company, giving them no choice. When this is done, all of the money and assets should be taken by the United Nations and 80 percent of it should be given to the people whose livelihoods have depended on the gulf waters or their income for their lives and families.
Until something can be done, maybe, no more offshore drilling until some perfected stop devices can be made to be put in place and work like they are suppose to before the disaster happens. Don't just say this may work. Horse hockey. Gve us the truth. And all of this should be done without any price increases at the gas pumps.
The Exxon Valdez was nothing compared to what was done there by BP in the gulf and that took some doing to bypass the Exxon. My sister worked on the Exxon cleanup for the Alaska Fish and Wildlife Service and she said they will never fully recover from this fiasco. This is nothing compared to the equivocally of the BP, which had ruined the lives of animals in the oceans and in time, this will circle the earth in one manner or another. I remember Richard Nixon saying, "Oil is our most precious resource." You can't drink oil.
