LET’S FIX IT OURSELVES!
The Gulf of Mexico oil ‘spill’ is now bringing death in the ocean from top to bottom.
In fact, Oil INC is behaving exactly the way INC the BEAST was designed to behave. It is managing its assets and liabilities to protect its profits. INC the BEAST is a non-living psychopathic parasitic ‘business model’, with a cadre of attorneys hired to limit any and all of its liabilities. The movie Erin Brockovich does an excellent job describing how INC the BEAST attorneys deal with their company’s production of life threatening pollution.
The latest in the Gulf of Mexico crisis: BP Refuses EPA order to switch to less toxic dispersant
BP has rebuffed demands from government officials and environmentalists to use a less-toxic dispersant to break up the oil from its massive offshore spill, saying that the chemical product it is now using continues to be “the best option for subsea application.”
On Thursday, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency gave the London-based company 72 hours to replace the dispersant Corexit 9500 or to describe in detail why other dispersants fail to meet environmental standards.
The agency on Saturday released a 12-page document from BP, representing only a portion of the company’s full response. Along with several dispersant manufacturers, BP claimed that releasing its full evaluation of alternatives would violate its legal right to keep confidential business information private.
But in a strongly worded retort, the EPA said that it was “evaluating all legal options” to force BP to release the remaining information “so Americans can get a full picture of the potential environmental impact of these alternative dispersants.”
This situation could create a virtual ‘sea change’ in the corps vs the community battle – globalization vs localization! In Louisiana a local community seized BP boats and are trying to take charge of their own coast line. Both Gov INC (Army Corps of Engineers and the EPA) and Business INC (BP) have failed this community and the oil is now washing ashore.
As the attorneys for Gov INC and Business INC battle out what to do about the Gulf Oil catastrophe, We the People have an amazing opportunity to build up our own emergency response system to the Gulf of Mexico crisis. If each of us donated $5, we would be well on our way.
On May 21, 2010 Dr Mike Castle (a polymer chemist) announced the launching of the ‘independent’ AmeriHaz Gulf clean up project on the Drew Raines radio program. This project is absolutely the safest and most intelligent approach to protecting shorelines and wild life from the pending carnage of the worst oil leak in history. There are ‘troops’ standing by to disseminate AmeriHaz in the Gulf area as soon as enough of the product can be produced.
However, to move forward, Castle Concepts (not an INC) needs at least $2 M to produce AmeriHaz in the enormous quantities necessary to protect and/or clean up the coastal areas of the Gulf of Mexico and Florida. Here is a chance for the public to act on a very real threat to our country and our environment. To use our own money and have our own team (not corporate profiteers) cleaning up the Gulf is absolutely the only way we can be certain it is done and done properly. (Remember the superfund sites?)
