People Question Whether Coast Really Is Clear – Project Gulf Impact Forum

Six months after the BP oil disaster, some question whether the coast is really clear…..

The non-profit group, Project Gulf Impact, put on a Fishermen’s Forum Sunday at Loyola University where people heard first-hand accounts of how the oil spill has impacted fishing communities and still is today. Arnesen spoke about all the people she knows who almost immediately faced foreclosures. She said, “that was months ago. Now here we are knocking on the six month anniversary and this is still happening. I don’t understand this.”

People question whether coast really is clear

While parts of the Gulf Coast fight off the spill's ripple effects, some areas are still in clean-up mode. Plaquemines Parish President Billy Nungesser, as recent as Friday, reported oil. "It still blows my mind that they've got all these people out there on the payroll not finding any oil, but the local fishermen, that they keep trying to downsize, keep finding oil," said Nungesser.

"The oil is 10 feet, 12 feet into the grasslands," said Vicki Perrin with the Coastal Heritage Society of LA.

"We don't know where we're going.. don't know what we're doing.. don't know where we're going to end up. What do we do in Plaquemines Parish?," asked Kindra Arnesen, who is married to a fisherman.

BP Is Teaching Kids The Correlation Between Corexit and Klondike Bars

BP and the federal government are working together to brainwash our kids into believing that Corexit is perfectly safe and the gulf is recovering right on schedule. They literally are teaching our school children that Corexit is in numerous items that we eat and poses absolutely no problem.

As we reported days ago, BP plans on “dispelling” the myths of the dispersant in schools throughout the gulf. Why is the government letting BP brainwash our children?

Amazing Footage of Unexplained Crevice in Michigan

As we reported yesterday, an unexplained crevice appeared in Menominee Township, Michigan. New footage has surfaced that gives us a much clearer picture of this mysterious event. Apparently the locals are shocked that they have not been contacted by any government officials. Despite receiving multiple calls from concerned residents, federal officials have completely ignored the situation.

Was this an earthquake? Does this correlate with the sink holes that have been showing up all over the world?

Probe into Gulf of Mexico oil spill criticises White House for blocking scientists' warnings about disaster

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1318435/Gulf-Mexico-oil-spill-...

The White House deliberately blocked estimates on the size of the potential environmental damage caused by the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, a report released yesterday declared.

The investigation by the National Oil Spill Commission said U.S. President Barack Obama and his administration had been over-optimistic about BP's ability to deal with the huge spill and action could have been taken earlier to minimise the disaster.

Government withholding key data on Gulf seafood testing, scientists say

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and FDA officials maintain they've provided results of ongoing Gulf seafood safety tests with the utmost transparency. But outside scientists, eager to perform independent evaluations of the government's findings, complain the information released contains far too many unknown variables that preclude peer review.

BP oil spill investigation critical of White House reaction to crisis

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/energy/oilandgas/80475...

Barack Obama's administration has been criticised for its handling of the BP Gulf of Mexico oil spill in a report commissioned by the White House.

The revelations from the National Oil Spill Commission come as the Democratic Party struggles to retain control of the US Congress in the elections on Nov 2.

The commission said that after the rig in the Gulf of Mexico exploded on April 20, killing 11 workers, the government was too optimistic about the oil company's ability to bring the ruptured well under control.

"Natural Barrier of Our Skin is Gone”

We have heavily documented the sickness that has been caused by BP and their use of the toxic dispersant known as Corexit. We have produced photographs, eye witness accounts, and multiple blood tests. The problem is that every time we receive more evidence it doesn’t indicate that the crisis is beginning to get better, rather it indicates that it is much worse.

Kindra Arnesen has battled BP and their toxic spraying from the beginning and has been a ray of hope for all. She has helped to expose the many cover ups perpetrated by BP and their puppets within the American government.

Oil Spill Panel: White House Blocked Federal Scientists From Releasing Worst-Case Scenario For Gulf Disaster

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration blocked efforts by government scientists to tell the public just how bad the Gulf oil spill could become and made other missteps that raised questions about its competence and candor during the crisis, according to a commission appointed by the president to investigate the disaster.

White House blocked BP oil spill estimates - Govt panel

The White House in the spring blocked release of government estimates on the worst-case scenario of the amount of oil that was spewing from BP's well in the Gulf of Mexico, the presidential commission looking into the accident said on Wednesday.

The commission said its staff was told that in late April or early May that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration wanted to make public some of its long-term, worst-case spill models for the Deepwater Horizon accident and requested approval from the White House's Office of Management and Budget to make the information public.

Evidence Refutes BP's and Fed's Deceptions

In August, Truthout conducted soil and water sampling in Pass Christian Harbor, Mississippi; on Grand Isle, Louisiana; and around barrier islands off the coast of Louisiana, in order to test for the presence of oil from BP's Macondo Well.

Laboratory test results from the samples taken in these areas show extremely high concentrations of oil in both the soil and water.

These results contradict consistent claims made by the federal government and BP since early August that much of the Gulf of Mexico is now free of oil and safe for fishing and recreational use.

Oil Spill Panel: Transocean Thwarting Probe

Members of a federal panel investigating the cause of the Gulf of Mexico rig explosion and oil spill and how to improve safety and oversight accused rig owner Transocean on Tuesday of thwarting their efforts to get to critical documents and a witness.

The co-chair of the panel, U.S. Coast Guard Capt. Hung Nguyen, told a packed hearing room in a New Orleans suburb that members have been trying for two months to get Transocean to turn over materials related to its compliance with international safety management codes.

BP Sprays Residents and Workers with Corexit, Teaches Students That Dispersant Is Fine

New revelations have surfaced that back up the early claims that dispersant was sprayed on the population. Multiple BP cleanup workers and residents have confirmed that they were indeed sprayed with Corexit.

Scientists: 40 Times More Cancer-Causing Toxics in Gulf than Before Spill ... Dispersants to Blame

OSU Researchers find heightened levels of known carcinogens in Gulf

CORVALLIS, Ore. – Although the flow of oil from the Deepwater Horizon spill was halted in mid-July, researchers continue to find elevated concentrations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, or PAHs, in some areas of the Gulf of Mexico.

Some of these chemicals are known carcinogens that pose a range of risks to human health.

Oregon State University researchers began testing for the contaminant May 9, and preliminary results, which have not yet been fully analyzed, suggest that the level of PAHs in the water off the coast of Louisiana experienced a 40-fold increase from May to June. The July data was lost when the device the OSU team uses for water sampling disappeared.

APOC’s ascendancy owed nothing to the free play of market forces idealized by mythmakers of economic liberalism, but to the role of Big Capital and the thrust of imperial financial power for enhanced control of world markets. Like the earlier conquests and brutal territorial annexations of Cecil Rhodes, it signallized the marriage of Big Capital and the imperial political-military complex. The pivotal actor in this compulsive planetary drive to market supremacy and control was Winston Churchill (1874-1965), soon to become First Lord of the Admiralty.

The Oil and the Turtles

“BP is responsible for the damages”—up to $50,000 per turtle, as per the Endangered Species Act—“but it is incumbent on the government to prove what [the damages] are,” says Clark. He has heard rumors that the cleanup crews on Grand Isle, Louisiana, which are mainly made up of prisoners, were bagging dead turtles and birds in plastic bags marked for incineration because no one from Fish and Wildlife responded to their calls. The F.W.S. agents were mainly focused on federally owned coastline. It may go beyond unresponsive government agencies. Clark also heard rumors that BP was deliberately burning oiled sargassum, even though living sea turtles were known to be still in the floating mats.

NOAA's goal here isn;t the health and safety of the children but to turn them into consumers of seafood to save BP from lawsuits by the fishing industry. Think about it; the government solution to protect BP's profits is to convince your kids to eat potentially toxic food!

Cancer Hazard: 2-Butoxy Ethanol may be a CARCINOGEN in humans since it has been shown to cause liver cancer in animals. Many scientists believe there is no safe level of exposure to a carcinogen.

Reproductive Hazard: 2-Butoxy Ethanol may damage the developing fetus. There is limited evidence that 2-Butoxy Ethanol may damage the male reproductive system (including decreasing the sperm count) in animals and may affect female fertility in animals.

2-Butoxy Ethanol may damage the liver and kidneys.
