Once again, BP fails at containment.

These fuckers couldn’t touch their asses with both hands, I swear to Buddha. Why are there score’s of professors and other technical types blasting BP for their so-called methods whilst very few actually touting their pathetic attempts?

Now the fuckers are saying it’s all gonna keep pouring out of their hole in the ocean floor until August.

Oh, and Carol Browner…Obama’s shill says and I quote: “American people need to know that it is possible we will have oil leaking from this well until August when the relief wells will be finished,” (emphasis mine)

A leak is a slow, irritating thing you friggin jackass. This shit is pouring out to the tune of millions of gallons a day.

Next, the health risks associated with working in and around BP’s disgusting chemicals. From WaPo:

“There’s no way you can be working in that toxic soup without getting exposures,” Hugh Kaufman, a senior policy analyst at the EPA’s office of solid waste and emergency response, said during an interview Thursday. He likened the response to previous toxic waste disasters and the World Trade Center cleanup, which left workers with long-term respiratory problems despite repeated official claims that workers did not need respirators because the working conditions were safe. “It’s unbelievable what’s going on. It’s like deja vu all over again,” he said.

The situation is being complicated by weather conditions, which include severe heat and humidity. That can cause symptoms similar to those triggered by some of the chemicals workers may be exposed to.

Assessing the health risks is also difficult because of several unknowns, including a lack of information about the makeup of chemicals being used to disperse the oil and how those substances might affect the toxicity of the oil, several experts said.

The most worrisome chemicals are volatile organic compounds, such as benzene, which can cause cancer at high levels and in long exposures. But those and other substances in the oil can cause acute symptoms including severe skin irritation, headaches, dizziness, nausea and burning eyes, as well as breathing problems and neurological complications including memory problems, confusion and disorientation.

Most acute symptoms from the chemical exposure disappear after the exposure ends, but long-term complications can occur. Some fishermen involved in cleaning up the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska suffered long-lasting neurological problems.

Ain’t that some shit? I’m telling ya…it’s fucking criminal sportsfans.

  1. Well I've been writing about this for weeks now.  You caught a lot of what is and is not going on.  Here's another dirty little secret…Improper PPE or none at all.  Personal protective equipment or PPE is essential for the workers trying to clean up this shit. Even the “Mud” has stuff in it that's toxic. You mentioned 911, yes exactly, those people were never given the right PPE either.  I have a vast amout of info if you want to know more.  BTW the MSDS sheets on the corexit shows heath hazards, that's exactly what some of the workers have complained about.  Let's face it, were fucked.

  2. Lets just face it folks. This should have been taken away from BP long ago. It just shows me once more how beholden our governments are to the Corps. If they be dem or repub they are all one.
    Why would any one allow the criminals in charge of containing, and  investigating a crime scene.
    This has been the failed mind set all along. One that believes that the Corps will regulate, and adhere to the law on their own. I totally agree with SS we are s-0-0-0-0- FUCKED.

  3. i was talking to a friend of mine who interviewed engineers in Houston working on this,  these guys are really trying – spending hours and hours doing what they can.  they care

    now to the BP execs – they are more worried about PR and the bottom line – i would bet BP is looking at bankruptcy to avoid paying and avoid lawsuits – and leave the bill on the desk of the US taxpayer.  the US govt should FREEZE their funds in every bank in the US – just leave money to  make payroll for those doing something.  as for execs – let me sip oil through a bendy straw

  4. I think Distributorcap is precisely right about seizing and freezing BP's assets and funds!   Excellent idea, although I shudder to think what new communist/fascist names would be applied to Obama and the Democrats if they had the stones to even attempt the move.

  5. The storms that bring much of the rain to the eastern part of the US start in the Gulf of Mexico.  I wonder how much of BP's toxic crap will get into the rainwater.  I wonder how much already has.
