Coast Guard to BP: Hurry Up

 

The U.S. Coast Guard has told BP that its slow pace stopping the massive spill in the Gulf of Mexico is becoming increasingly alarming and demands that the company step up its efforts to halt the flow.

The latest missive in almost two months of testy relations between the company and the U.S. government says BP must speed up and have a better plan in place before President Obama makes his fourth visit to the Gulf on Monday.

Meanwhile, polluted water reached Alabama´s Orange beach, leaving dark, stinking piles of oil that extend up to 12 feet from the water´s edge the length of the beach.

Yeah because BP has no incentive to stop the spill, I am sure a stern talking will be the encouragement they need.

everybody actually thinks they have some kinda power over this, and over BP, no one does, not even the president.

Maybe we should ´cane´ their CEO on the worst polluted beach. If that doesn´t work, we could waterboard BP´s board of directors. I don´t think this POS company has taken this spill seriously since day one.

More incentive to abolish oil as a fuel and find an alternative:

  of course  
 
everyone should know that oil will still be needed even if there is a practical alternative for a fuel source.

  Execute the board of directors the Prez and the VP  
 
for crimes against humanity and nature. That would be a good start. I´ll bet the people that take their places will get off their asses and make sure the job gets done pronto. I see this as much more devastating in the long term than the trade centers being demolished. This is terrorism on a grand and long term scale.

  Well...  
 
I´m sure that once Obama makes his fourth photo op, er... visit to the gulf coast, BP will get their shit together and stop this oil leak.

After all, look at all the good he did with his first three visits. I mean, sure, there are still hundreds of thousands of gallons of oil being pumped into the Gulf of Mexico but at least we got to pay for a huge jet to fly from DC to the gulf shore and back three times. Just think of all the jobs that were saved and all the money that flowed back into our economy when Air Force One flew Obama to the gulf for his photo op, er visits.

I just hope that they bought the jet fuel from BP so that BP will have enough income to pay for this catastrophe.
