One Comment to “Why isn’t Obama commandeering US oil tankers to clean up the Gulf?”

  • Gulf Oil Flow-Supertankers Clean Up-596 million gallons!
    Two months after the Gulf oil well disaster the wellhead oil flow and oil spill remain out of control with no positive action planned to control and suck up the oil at sea before it makes landfall 48 miles away or inters the international Gulf Stream!
    That condition is not acceptable! People in charge need to go!
    President Obama, Fire BP and appoint proven environmental disaster expert and engineer Nick Pozzi and oil expert and former (Dutch) Shell Oil president John Hofmeister to be in charge of a independent “Stop the Gulf Oil Flow & Clean Up Task Force” to take positive action today.
    We need a fleet of Supertankers on site today to recover millions of gallons of oil before it reaches land 48 miles away!
    Dutch and Belgium three days after the oil spill offered to help (thank you) but was turned down. They have world renowned technology and expertise to respond to ocean oil spills with a specialized fleet of ocean going ships; they are oil spill professionals that have a proven and positive plan. In short they are prepared for an oil spill.
    The US obviously, is not prepared for an oil spill and has no positive plans for either stopping the flow of oil permanently or for cleaning up the oil on the ocean before it reaches land 48 miles away!
    Why should Big Oil be prepared in the US, it is easier, and cheaper, to buy corrupt politicians and use in-house illegal, unethical, and unhealthy dispersants than to be prepared for an oil spill. Hell, let nature take care of it!
    Dutch and Belgium have a national ocean oil spill response plan and the specialized equipment to do the job. If the same circumstances happened 48 miles off their coast; the oil spill would have not reached shore. They typically would have set up at least 3 perimeters of oil containment on site and used their specialized fleet of tankers and suction oil equipment to suck the millions of barrels of oil into their fleet of tankers.
    That oil saved (cleaned up) is processed into fuel; there are no dispersants used! The oil on the surface and at dept below the surface is cleaned up and processed! That’s green, in a way!
    The US is backward and sadly corrupt and has no oil spill response plan, expertise or modern equipment to respond; their clean up methods are mean in nature, fatalistic suicidal and archaic. Instead of cleaning up the oil at sea, illegal dispersants (over a million gallons) has been used to spread the oil into the ocean ecosystem to hide it! That’s the “no!!! oil recovery plan”.
    There is no plan for stopping the oil flow permanently (relief wells are very tenuous and dangerous) and the extent of the damage to the wellhead and sea floor is kept secret. The controlled mass media is complicit. That’s the “no!!! stop the oil flow plan”.
    The US and BP strategy is to lie and cover up the wellhead and sea floor damage, dispersant health damage, oil flow rate and the extent of the oil spill with a controlled mass media “Gulf Oil Spill black out” and with the ongoing misleading propaganda that never address the true oil spill issues and ramifications (brainwashing). Money can buy anything, right?
    For example: The largest oil spill in the world, the Arabian Oil Spill 1993 to 1994, was kept secret (media black out) from the world by the Saudi government and went unreported for 17 years. The spill was estimated to be 700 million gallons, 65 times larger than the Exxon Valdez spill. 85 percent of that spill, an estimated 596 million gallons, was cleaned up on the surface and at dept with the use of Supertankers.
    One engineer in charge of that massive undertaking was Mr. Pozzi; experienced engineers and scientist like him should be in charge of the Gulf Oil Spill via an independent task force.

    The US needs to stop the use of illegal, unhealthy dispersants and change our unreasonable, unscientific and suicidal course.
    American citizens need to gain control of this ecological and economic catastrophe today by using available science with clean up Supertankers and Dutch and Belgium state of the art oil spill clean up technology and equipment.
    Blog President Obama, We Demand Change Now!!! Head of State or Head on stick!!!
