Let @BP_America know the #OilSpill is important to you


What is most tragic about the Gulf of Mexico oil spill is that it could have been taken care of and addressed much sooner. When the tragedy first hit, BP Oil made some deceiving statements to locals. Cade Thomas, a fishing guide in Venice, worried that his livelihood will be destroyed. He said he did not know whether to blame the Coast Guard, the federal government or oil company BP PLC.

“They lied to us. They came out and said it was leaking 1,000 barrels when I think they knew it was more. And they weren’t proactive,” he said. “As soon as it blew up, they should have started wrapping it with booms.”

Government officials said the blown-out well 40 miles offshore is spewing five times as much oil into the water as originally estimated — about 5,000 barrels, or 200,000 gallons, a day. At that rate, the spill could eclipse the worst oil spill in U.S. history — the 11 million gallons that leaked from the grounded tanker Exxon Valdez in Alaska’s Prince William Sound in 1989 — in the three months it could take to drill a relief well and plug the gushing well 5,000 feet underwater on the sea floor.

It’s time to see BP take their revenues and pay for the lives & wildlife they have ruined. If you have wondered how much money they bring in and if they have the resources to take care of this problem look at these numbers: BP is one of the most powerful corporations operating in the United States. Its 2009 revenues of $327 billion are enough to rank BP as the third-largest corporation in the country. It spends aggressively to influence US policy and regulatory oversight.

Get on Twitter and tell @BP_America to take their billions and hold nothing back to fix this problem.

    This incredible disaster is the predictable result of promoting the fairy tale that Oil exploration is environmentally safe. Nothing is further from the truth.

    If you have any character or sense of responsibility, you will get out of this filthy business and invest in Wind and Solar energy.

    And the oil just keeps leaking and BP keeps on lying about the progress. Makes me so mad!
