Brazilian authorities want criminal charges for Chevron in oil spill

EXCERPT
Chevron has said the spill occurred because the company underestimated the pressure in an underwater reservoir.

MY TAKE

A semi long memory is needed to stay up with the stories told by BIG OIL. For their needs are met while telling lies. But mum is the word for all in the loop that knows the truth. So who did the Brazil environmental officials muscle around to get some to fess up about this tried to be covered up mess? My guess some nationals that knew how bad things could be for them by lying.

EXCERPT

Among them is George Buck, chief operating officer for San Ramon-based Chevron's Brazilian division. If indicted and convicted, he and the others could face jail terms of up to 14 years each, Scliar said.

MY TAKE
George Buck is the head of the Chevron snake in Brazil ---- now how many bones will rattle in Chevrons closet hearing this news?

Bottom line BIG OIL AND BIG GAS is not the ruler of this Earths environmental need. They are nothing more than a mining company to take out what they want and leave the refuse for others to clean up. Look at our once pristine America then you try best to decide how much we should help our Federal Government ride herd over this bunch,
