The US (Big Oil and World Banksters) doesn’t have the technology or the ships rigged for an oil spill response. Why should they, it is easier to buy politicians and illegal dispersants than to be prepared for a spill. The Belgian firm DEME and Jan De Nul Group contends they can clean up the oil with accuracy at a depth of 6,000 feet.
Obama turned the European offers down.
Thanks to BP and Obama, so far, there has been about 5 million barrels of oil that has leaked into the Gulf and beyond with the aid of illegal dispersants and most of it (by plan) will never be cleaned up.
Had Obama accepted the offer back then and not allowed BP to use illegal dispersants, the oil would have never made landfall 48 miles away.
Today,(a month and half to late) there are US tankers that are steaming to the site with four pairs of modern skimming booms that were airlifted from the Netherlands and should be sucking up oil at the flow site within days.
Each pair can process 5 million gallons of water a day, removing 20,000 tons of oil and sludge.
If those skimmers were in place when they were offered a month ago, each pair could presumably recover 4.4 million barrels of oil. Four pairs of the state of the art skimmers would be able to suck up 17.6 million barrels in a month, although they will not be able to reach the depths of the plumes that are floating away with the illegal dispersants.
I know it is to late for the coast, but maybe today, we will have the initial oil spill response that we should have had months ago and start recovering the oil at the source. There is no longer even a pretense that BP or Obama has any intention of stopping the oil flow permanently.
Nationalize Big Oil and World Bankers for our own public good to save our economy, ecology, Democracy and Independence from the Totalitarian New World Order. The revolution is inevitable between World Totalitarians and our Conservative and Liberal Democracy; which side are you on?
