Man Made Disasters and Climate Change


The dramatic photos of the Man Made destruction of the Aral Sea and the reckless Corporate Negligence directly causing the never ending oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico should definitively end the debate about Climate Change. I write should knowing that the it won't because the Soulless Republican Party in defense of their Plutocratic Corporate Masters will fight to defend the Rights of BP, Haliburton and TransOcean to make billions even while the Seas die and Battered Republican Voters will accept whatever narrative Dick Armeys' Freedom Works, Fascist Fox News and the Texas School Boards tell them.

BP has a long history of ignoring and out right flaunting of regulations. In the Chicago land Area, BP's Whiting Refinery used the Bush Regime's lack of vigor or outright blind eye to dump massive amounts of benzene, mercury and other toxic and cancer causing chemicals into Lake Michigan.

Now after BP undertook a drilling operation, in which they had no remedies to fight or even prevent an accident if something went wrong, we learn multiple warning signs and problems began to occur a full 24 hours before the deadly explosion and never ending oil leak.

But, Sarah Palin and Sean Hannity have been dutifully repeating Non American Rupert Murdoch's fascist lies that Obama is somehow to blame. But, that's to be expected Hannity and Palin will do anything for money. Of course, Republicans love the Gulf Catastrophe because Republicans love BP and BP loves to kill their workers. Therefore, Republicans love to kill American Workers.

"I know that this committee has its eyes on the environment. We in Louisiana . . . not only have our eyes on it, we have our heart invested in it and we are making a living on that delta. But we need the oil that comes from offshore to keep this economy moving. We must examine what went wrong, weigh the risk and rewards, fix what is broken and move on . . . If we could do without this oil, we would. But we simply cannot—not today, not in the near future." -- Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA)

Whining about Bush may make you feel better, but it solves nothing.

BP's job is to safely drill for oil, and the government's job it to hold them to it. Both failed.
