The Gulf Coast is Dying

The toxification of the Gulf doesn't get enough coverage.
There is a huge cover up in play.
First it was BP's lies about the series of events that led to the Deepwater rig exploding and then they lied about the volume of oil being released.
Then came the White House reassuring the public that they were on top of things and monitoring the situation. Absolute bullshit!
The Coast Guard led by Thad Allen watched BP's back as they sprayed Corexit dispersant everywhere. Corexit is a neurotoxin. It is illegal to use Corexit in the UK but our own EPA watched as BP sprayed Corexit everywhere. After a month the EPA suggested that BP use a less toxic dispersant.
Here is the clincher, BP DID NOT follow logical methods of collection & containment.
What should have been done is position super tankers to suck up the oil as it escaped. Use skimmers to collect the oil that makes it to the surface and protect the coastline with a closely monitored and constantly repositioned system of the orange oil booms.
What BP did was spray Corexit across the the water and the coastline as well as deep in the ocean at the mouth of the spewing well. BP sprayed Corexit everywhere and on everything to cover up how much oil escaped.
There is a list of of those that openly lied, attempted to control & cover up the flow of information, were enablers and those that were just complicit by inaction.
The Feds- those that protect, investigate and prosecute.
The White House with all the spins and misinformation.
Agencies that failed to do their jobs- the EPA, NOAA, MMS (Dept of the Interior)..
The Coast Guard under the command of Admiral Thad Allen..
At the root of all problems BP, Halliburton,and TransOcean..

quote from interview "Coast Guard Commandant Admiral Thad Allen should be fired. Right now this minute before he can give another press conference to echo what BP said not 5 minutes before him. Then he should be court martialed and sent to prison before BP can give him a goddamn job."
