The Video BP Doesn't Want You to See!

This video first came to my attention from Matt @ OsborneInk... One of the very best blogs out there.

Then last night Olbermann showed parts of it on his show... I was wanting to get this up yesterday morning but ran out of time.. So here it is.

This is sickening and disgusting and it tells the story as to why BP has kept most reporters out and why they won't allow flyovers. This was done unauthorized by BP or anyone... but it is a must see. This is what they are denying is happening, when BP says there are no plumes of oil on the water.

The man who shot it was also on with Keith and told about it.. His name is John L. Wathen and he blogs @ I know how hard it is to watch these... but this one really needs to be seen by everyone. Post it.. blog about it.. get the word out there... This is what we need to see to help us realize what is going on and to realize how vital it is we get off this oil addiction we suffer from.

I can answer a couple of his questions:

Why aren't there big ships with skimmers?
They don't exist. It takes 4-6 months to outfit one. Moreover, we don't want BP to use ships sailing under a flag of convenience (E.g., registered in Liberia or Panama) because the safety inspection standards are notoriously lax.

Will the Gulf ever be the same again?
Yes, if Mother Nature has to kill us all in the bargain. Over time, nature repairs itself; it's just not particular about what it takes to get the job done.

I agree K... and yes I knew about the ships.. contrary to what the Rethugs are saying.. lol

It will take time, but I do believe it will be once again the beautiful place it was 3 months ago.

I'm 47. I don't think the Gulf will be the same in my lifetime.

Who knows what was in the dispersants BP used. Who knows what else is now being dumped in the Gulf because unscroupulus bastards see the opportunity to dump whatever in there and watching BP take the blame.

I still don't know if you can eat fish taken from Michigan waters because of PCP contamination 40 or 50 years ago.

Very true Truth.. we can only hope and pray it happens.

Another of your sharp and poignant posts. Thank goodness you and other brave souls aren't letting this story die, Annette. Will add the video to my next post.

Great piece of work, Girlfriend. Keep fighting the good fight.
