Bureaucracy frustrates U.S. Gulf oil spill efforts | Reuters FRIDAY, 18 JUNE 2010 BP Oil Spill: Obama To Nungesser's Louisiana's Rescue? SATURDAY, 19 JUNE 2010 BP Oil Spill: Nungesser Complains About Cleanup Thanks Obama for letting us deploy our barges. Right now BP is in control of the cleanup of the Gulf. This has caused major problems with command and control, censorship, worker health, delays in preparation, and communication ( now 100,000 bpd BP document: Worst-case scenario -- 4.2 million gallons daily in Gulf - CNN.com ) The problem with this model of leadership is clear, BP cares about BP, and cares more about liability ( which is why our workers can not wear respirators or they will be fired) and evidence being collected, than it cares about the wildlife, wetlands, marine life, and people. To understand what the situation is in Louisiana takes nothing more than common American sense. Florida is now seeing major oil slicks. Louisiana is 40-45 miles from the spill and Florida is 330 miles. The oil is traveling at a rate of 12 mph. Your not seeing anything of the damage, lucky I don't think they can lock the media down in florida, but we'll see. There has to be a better way to handle this. Ill have front line pictures and video for you guys shortly, working out conditions with some fisherman. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FA1r92DIaXQ Oil is not the problem, we are.
