An Inconvenient Truth

I hate to keep beating a dead horse, but the topic of BP and the Gulf Coast Oil Spill is on my mind yet again.

A story from the NY Daily News describes what BP doesn’t want President Obama or the public to see. Images such as these ones.

One contract worker described a dolphin that was “filled with oil” to the extent that “oil was just pouring out of it.”

That same worker went on to explain what BP was doing.

“There is a lot of coverup for BP. They specifically informed us that they don’t want these pictures of the dead animals. They know the ocean will wipe away most of the evidence. It’s important to me that people know the truth about what’s going on here.”

BP’s CEO, Terry Hayward, has had to remove his foot from his mouth on a few occasions during this crisis. You see, Mr. Hayward “would like my life back.” It appears that this oil spill and environmental disaster as a result of it are preventing him from living his life.

I’m sorry all these things are becoming an inconvenience for you, Mr. Hayward. I’m sure the residents who live in the states that are affected, the fisherman who have lost their livelihood and the ecosystem that is greatly affected all want their lives back too. But you see, there’s a difference. When this is all said and done, you will return to your life of luxury, while everyone else will try picking up the pieces of their shattered lives.

Shame on you, Mr. Hayward, shame on you!
