RE: OBSTRUCTION OF INDEPENDENT SCIENCE TESTING, PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE AND PRESS REPORTS IN RELATION TO THE BP OIL DISASTER ON THE GULF COAST

For those of you who do not live on the Gulf Coast nor have access to Concerned Citizens working on the BP oil disaster, I want to share with you my perspective on certain important aspects of the crisis, i.e. the obstruction by authoritative agencies to inhibit and prevent citizen’s efforts to discover the facts for themselves.  What you are about to read and view will shock you.

On the day that BP and coast guard officials were high-fiving each other over permanently killing the well from hell, oil-soaked Plaquemines Parish suffered its third major fish kill in a week. That caused peripatetic parish president Billy Nungesser to take time off from his furious election campaign to blast federal and state officials who seem to find happy news at every turn.

BP spokespeople and local officials, meanwhile, also have a unified message: “It’s algae.”
