May 29, 2010

BP finally gave up attempts to stem the flow of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill with the so-called top kill, and the company’s spokesman said in a press conference there is no guarantee the next step will work.

“After three full days of attempting top kill, we have been unable to overcome the flow from the well, so we think it’s time to move on to the next of the options …,” BP’s Doug Suttle said.

    Has Oil Been Stopped?-3


    The so-called “top kill” operation aimed at shutting off the flow of oil at the site of the wrecked Deepwater Horizon rig has been successful, the Los Angeles Times quoted U.S. Coast Guard Admiral Thad Allen as saying this morning.

    However, BP officials did not confirm the success and the White House called the report premature. BP said an update on flow rates from the leaking riser will be provided by the U.S. Geological Survey this morning.

    'Make BP Pay'-2


    A Louisiana Sportsman Special Report:

    While many anglers have expressed frustration with a seemingly helter-skelter string of fishing closures and reopenings following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries head Robert Barham said there is method to the madness.

    “When we have an imminent projection of oil into the area or a verified report that oil is in the area, we close it,” Barham told LouisianaSportsman yesterday (May 25).

    Marsh Madness-6


    According Joe Macaluso of The Advocate: The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries announced at 8 p.m. Saturday the most far-reaching closure of state coastal waters in the more than four weeks since British Petroleum’s Deepwater Horizon rig began gushing oil into the Gulf of Mexico off Louisiana’s coast.

    All the newly closed waters are “inside” waters and include closures of most of Barataria Bay, all of Caminada Bay north of Grand Isle, and most, if not all, of Terrebonne and Timbalier bays.

    BP To Captains: 'Don't Hold Your Breath'-2



    BP's promised monthly "business-interruption" payments of $5,000 to charter boat captains and fishing outfitters affected by the catastrophic Deepwater Horizon disaster have seemingly dried up. In a telephone conversation with a BP representative yesterday, Venice, Louisiana charterboat Captain Devlin Roussel, the Gulf Coast fishing veteran was basically told to not hold his breath for the next payment.

    The Old Man and the Canal-10


    According to the Associated Press, eighty-one-year-old Don Minnaert fell fifteen feet into the frigid waters of Hennepin Canal when he refused to cut his line against a monster bass.

    Minnaert was actually targeting panfish last May 13 in his native Geneseo, Illinois when he tumbled into the canal.  He had just hooked a small fish with his ultra light rig when a bass took his catch and plowed for deeper waters.

    Oil Nears The Keys-2



    The U.S. Coast Guard has reported that tar balls likely from the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig have begun to show up near Key West, Florida. Further, nearly 46,000 square miles of federal waters have been closed to fishing.

    It is likely that oil from the Deepwater Horizon spill has very likely already entered the Gulf of Mexico’s Loop Current, according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Administrator Jane Lubchenco.

    BP: Clean Up Your Damn Mess-5



    My two weeks on the ground in Louisiana have been a complete learning experience. Not only have I learned more about the Machiveallen machinations of large corporate America, but also of the media and the spin our country has adopted as truth. Ultimately the nation’s learning experience from the BP/Halliburton/TransOcean Oil Spill will never result in changes or answers, but more reasons to lessen corporate governmental oversight on large industry. How as an individual am I to balance a healthy belief in a free market economy based on the oil industry as the driving factor behind our financial success with the atrocities and finger-pointing the entities responsible for the mess are trying to shoulder off on the other?  I didn’t think I could, but a Republican senator from Alaska may have changed my mind.
