It's all BP's Fault

The 50-barrels of Bunker Oil was a BP Product being loaded on a barge in Texas City to another location. So it's all BP's fault.


OMFG There's Pelicans Dying down there..... Now who does that sound like :P

"TEXAS CITY, Texas — Two oil-slicked pelicans are recovering at a wildlife rehabilitation center in Seabrook after being found Monday near where 50 barrels of bunker oil spilled into the Texas City ship channel during the weekend, officials confirmed.

It was unconfirmed if the birds were covered in oil from the spill at Dock 34 at the Port of Texas City or the oil source was from elsewhere.

Officials with the Unified Command initially said there were no impacts on wildlife from the spill.

One of the birds had a wing missing, an injury that is not believed to be related to the slick that forced the closure of the Port of Texas City and Texas City Dike on Friday and Saturday, Unified Command spokesman Henry de La Garza said. The bird also was malnourished."

Honestly, I don't give two shits about pelicans. In fact, it's safe to say I friggin hate pelicans. I say let them die. Hell, I even wish the University of Miami would change their mascot! Damn pests...

AND I THINK BP HAS A SECRET FACILITY WHERE THEY TRAIN THEM ALL TO BE PESTS!!!

In fact, I bet BP trains all of the pests at Area 51 and that's why the government doesn't know anything about it!

It's true! All that leaked oil seeped down into the fault and made it slippery.

There's a crisis in Libya? Oil rig leaking?

I noticed the thread the AK posted in here the other day has become a "mega doom oil volcano with the sea floor spewing oil and killing everything."

Seriously, it's only been one article from an assumption all based on the fact BP contracted some shrimp boats to give them a hand with a cleanup a few days ago.

No news agencies are reporting sea floor mega doom as was in the article referenced.

Yankees is right, BP sucks chuckle.gif they mishandled the ğck out of things.

We all saw the the "professional" ineptitude they displayed, but the good news is this does not seem to be originating from Macondo site.

The bad news is they ƒükkêd up and released crude in the water again, doesn't much matter where it came from, "Thunderhorse" the Macondo site, or whatever. They as a corporation come off as careless in everything but the bottom line. ( as do the majority of corporations.)

Responsibility and accountability go a long way, but the oil lobbyists have made certain the oil companies don't have to worry about concepts like best practices, responsibility and accountability; just like our politicians don't worry about that anymore. Everybody breaks the law and nobody goes to jail unless they are poor.

You got that shït right. There needs to be accountability. No one is above the law.

But I still want the damn pelicans dead.


Anyone who has been fishing from a pier knows what I am talking about.

Interesting article Yankees cheers.gif
An excerpt here:

Quote:MOBILE, Alabama -- Oil is once again fouling the Gulf of Mexico around the Deepwater Horizon well, which was capped a little over a year ago.

Tuesday afternoon, hundreds of small, circular patches of oily sheen dotted the surface within a mile of the wellhead. With just a bare sheen present over about a quarter-mile, the scene was a far cry from the massive slick that covered the Gulf last summer.

Floating in a boat near the well site, Press-Register reporters watched blobs of oil rise to the surface and bloom into iridescent yellow patches. Those patches quickly expanded into rainbow sheens 4 to 5 feet across.

Each expanding bloom released a pronounced and pungent petroleum smell. Most of the oil was located in a patch about 50 yards wide and a quarter of a mile long.

The source of the oil was unclear, but a chemical analysis by Louisiana State University scientists confirmed that it was a sweet Louisiana crude, and could possibly be from BP PLC’s well.

The oil could be flowing from a natural seep on the seafloor near the wellhead, experts said. Other possibilities include oil trapped within the wreckage of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig, or oil deposited on the bottom during the spill that is slowly working its way to the surface.

The most troubling possibility, according to petroleum engineers, is that oil is leaking up through the seafloor surrounding the sealed well pipe.

Seems to be a lot of speculation as to the exact source. Taco said he thought it came from "Thunderhorse" but, I've yet to see that backed up in the media or other sources so I can't confirm or deny anything.
The bottom line is something isn't right and no one is saying much.

How does Corexit work? Does it actually brake the oil molecules down or just absorb them? Thought maybe all that Corexit on the ocean floor might be releasing oil.


Eh, it's a thought.

Read it breaks up the oil into tiny droplets by binding itself with the oil - then the water dilutes it - so I guess it doesn't break it down as much as turn it to something else - what that something else is I've never been able to find out

Whats left is all supposed to be laying on the bottom of the seafloor.
Who knows what the ultimate outcome may be, IMO BP should have let Mother Nature take it's course and allow natural oil eating microbes take care of it.
Instead they chose the Kitty Litter hide the shït option.

Out of site, out of mind was the goal of BP's war on spills. DDT and a host of other chemicals have been declared safe by business and industry through the years.
