Gulf Conservationists Challenge Phony BP Oil Disaster Cleanup Plan~Gulf Restoration Network
~Earthjustice filed suit today in federal court against the U.S. Minerals Management Service challenging the agency’s arbitrary approval of BP’s oil spill clean-up plan. The clean up plan was approved in July 2009 prior to the approval of the exploratory drilling plan. If successful, this legal challenge will result in a court ruling that Minerals Management Service’s approval of BP’s spill cleanup plan was illegal and a new plan needs to be crafted and approved before BP can do any more exploratory oil drilling.

Earlier in the week, Riley complained that the Coast Guard had moved containment boom to Louisiana that had been on standby in Alabama.When asked Friday if he wanted the boom back from Louisiana, Riley said, "I don't care where they get it."
~Editilla Rotellas~United We Stand, Divided We Slick.
I don't care how they shuffle this around, as long as highly compromised BP Admiral Thad Allen is in charge then there is No Difference and BP is Still Running This Show. Every word out of Thad The Impaler's mouth is to cover BP's Ass. Every word.
It is because of Thad Allen that BP was able to LIE.
And now we also have the Head of NOAA LYING for BP on the oil plumes, despite half a dozen independent observations to the contrary and it turns out the MMS/Industry's OWN STUDIES?

It continues: "The testimony cannot possibly be factual when the defendant then turned right around and hired a brand new faculty member in the same rank as plaintiff and even gave him tenure. ...

BP / Gulf Oil Spill - Landfall in Alabama?~SkyTruth
~MODIS images today were too cloudy to be useful, but an excellent radar satellite image was taken today of the ongoing Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. This image, taken from the Envisat satellite using the ASAR radar sensor, shows oil apparently making landfall in Alabama on the east side of Mobile Bay, in the Fort Morgan - Gulf Shores area. An article on the Washington Post website today seems to confirm what we're seeing on the image
New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu predicts ugly fight for resources to contain oil, as Gimp Obama allows BP's Thad Allen to pit State Against State and Parishes against Counties... Citizen Against Citizen
~Landrieu said the federal command structure - with Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen charged with parceling out absorbent boom, skimmers and other resources - bears a marked contrast with chaotic efforts after Hurricane Katrina to secure federal aid. "But that doesn't take away the hard fact that people are going to get and some people are not going to get, and so you see this now with the governors of Alabama, Mississippi and Florida wanting to protect their constituents saying, 'I need the limited resources,'" Landrieu said.
"The bigger question is: Why do we have limited resources?" he said. "Is this nation really capable of doing big things? We're seeing once again that there are some catastrophic events that we are not, as a nation, fully prepared (for), or as a private industry."

Banksy’s Comment On The Oilspill ~NOLAFemmes

BP oil spill: Will the 'sweeping arm system' from the Dutch help?~In a press conference Tuesday, BP Adm. Thad 'The Impaler' Allen would neither confirm nor deny that the technology would be used in the Gulf oil spill. Allen would only say that recovery officials were “reaching out to the Netherlands, Canada, and Mexico” for technology assistance. “We’re looking at all sources,” he said. (America says riiight, Tony, erruh, Thad)
Dutch companies that manufacture the sweeping arm system first contacted BP officials April 23, three days after the Deepwater Horizon explosion, according to Mr. Huisman, who spoke by phone from his office in The Hague Tuesday.
After receiving little reply, the companies turned to his department for help in reaching out to the US State Department, Huisman says.
~Editilla suspectellas~ We think Thad The Impaler isn't kidding anyone about being embedded with BP PEO Tony Fey Hayward. It is pretty obvious that disgraced Adm Allen has his head in BP's pants. He is more compromised than a jailhouse punk. We do not believe Thad The Impaler speaks for anyone but BP PEO Tony Fey Hayward. This is patently obvious. He's lying.
What we really need to know is who else in the US Coast Guard is Lying? Who else at NOAA is Lying? Who else in Washington is Lying for BP? We know why. We just need to know who they are and where they are. You are either with us or with the terrorists.

Gulf of Mexico - Time To Get Serious About Routine Satellite Monitoring ~SkyTruth
~The ongoing Deepwater Horizon oil spill has provided a rare scientific opportunity: for the first time, multiple satellite remote-sensing systems, from visible to infrared to radar, are providing daily images of a large area in the Gulf of Mexico. This systematic imaging is proving useful for measuring the size and location of oil slicks and sheen, and for estimating the rate of leakage from BP's failed Macondo well.
It's also demonstrating another important ability -- here at SkyTruth we think we've discovered a small but possibly chronic leak from an oil platform located a few miles off the Mississippi Delta, unrelated to but not far from BP's leaking well.

~This image, acquired on May 24, 2010 by the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) instrument aboard NASA's Terra spacecraft, shows oil from the former Deepwater Horizon rig encroaching upon several of Louisiana's wildlife habitats.
The source of the spill is located off the southeastern (bottom right) edge of the image. The left-hand image contains data from the nadir (vertical-viewing) camera, and is shown in near-true color except that data from the near-infrared band, where vegetation appears bright, has been blended with the green band to enhance the appearance of vegetation. The Mississippi River delta is located below image center. The slick is seen approaching the delta from the lower right, and filaments of oil are also apparent further to the north (towards the top). The oil is made visible by sunglint off the sea surface. Oil is known to have a damping effect on surface waves, making the surface look brighter under these viewing conditions than it would if the oil were not present. However, other factors can also cause enhanced glint, such as reduced surface wind speed. To separate glint patterns due to oil from these other factors, additional information from MISR's cameras is used in the right-hand image.

"Over the last few weeks I've watched, as we all have, with growing horror and heartache, watching what's happening in the Gulf and thinking those morons don't know what they're doing," Cameron said at the All Things Digital technology conference. Cameron, the director of "Avatar" and "Titanic," has worked extensively with robot submarines and is considered an expert in undersea filming. He did not say explicitly who he meant when he referred to "those morons." His comments came a day after he participated in a meeting at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency headquarters in Washington to "brainstorm" solutions to the oil spill.

~When the Corps of Engineers levees failed in August 2005 causing the deaths of over 1,400 and putting a major city underwater, no one, including Rep Charlie Melancon called for the firing of Corps Commander Lt. Gen Carl Strock.
And no one including Rep Melancon objected when Lt. Gen Strock in Oct 2005 ordered an investigation of the levee failures, which amounted to an analysis of his agency's own work, a self-study of the levee failures.
We the citizens couldn't object because we were trying to figure where to live, work and send our kids to school.
150,000 families were displaced.

As pointed out by James Carville this past Sunday on CNN, the nation stood by "..passively as Louisiana continues to lose vital marshlands and wetlands, as it did when 80 percent of New Orleans was under water during...Hurricane Katrina because the Army Corps of Engineers "built shoddy levees.""

~Editilla humbly asks a few things~ Containment? What a nice word. A little late for that eh, Thad? "Containment" sounds so much more hopeful than 100,000,000 POUNDS OF OIL RELEASED. Doesn't that sound more cheerleadingful? Thad?
This BP Spoker retired from the Coast Guard last week, after an ignoble stint as BP's Incident Commander. There is a new Commander.
