The following was discussed on The Truther Girls radio show on June 21 st.
At US House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, June 15, Larry Schweiger, President and CEO of NWF, says oil spill is a crime scene. Refers to turtles dying, states US must take steps to cut oil dependence in half.
Schweiger says BP should not be in charge of dealing with cleanup and providing info to public- info is restricted. BP CEO Hayward ‘choosing sound bites over science’.
5 species of turtles in Gulf listed as endangered or threatened. Oil imperils them, as do dispersants. Nat’l academy of science said years earlier that the effect of mixing dispersants into the ocean is not known, but testing they recommended was never carried out.
Solution: urging obama to get Fed gov to take over environmental monitoring, testing and public safety protection form BP. Cap on liability and punitive damages should be lifted.
Invest in restoration of Mississippi delta. Disaster should ‘make it clear thet congress shousl pass real energy reform that would cut our dependence on oil in half. Hold oil co and other corporations accountable for spills and carbon pollution. This crisis in the gulf is about creating a safer energy platform for America.’
Moderator adds: “making a safer energy platform really characterizes what we are in pursuit of in this hearing, among other things.”
The moderator has rephrases what Schweiger said. What Schweiger said literally means “The purpose of the crisis in the gulf is to create a safer energy platform for America” as in, this crisis has been deliberately created to push through energy reform. I have studied grammar and linguistics and I can assure you that that is what Schweiger’s statement means. Did Schweiger just openly admit that the Gulf oil crisis was deliberately engineered or is being deliberately used to push through new laws?
Schweiger is right about one thing, it certainly IS a crime scene.
“BP is blocking access to rescuing turtles and is incinerating turtles in the oil. Interview by Catherine Craig
HAVE CANCELED THE TURTLE RESCUE PROGRAM AS OF TODAY BECAUSE OF BP’S INTERFERENCE IN THE RESCUES.”
Report boat captain Mike Ellis, working for BP and coast guard to save turtles, who was at the site states that BP is preventing turtles from being saved. Shrimp boats towing booms, collecting weed lines and oil lines, turtles getting caught in these lines.
They cut the operation short and kicked the turtle people out. Turtles are being caught between boons and being left to burn alive in the oil that has been set on fire. Project was supposed to be 3 weeks, but BP has cut it short. Mike also reports workers are getting headaches.
