It’s great seeing young surfers speak out for the environment. i hope the Lopez brothers are doing their part to use less oil – which means not only gasoline, but plastics as well.
These guys are right on target, but the answer is to push for an end to dependence on fossil fuels and the money that corrupted MMS’s regulation. An energy bill just failed in congress in spite of the horrible disaster because of the money the oil industry is paying Washington senators. The industry has the most powerful group of lobbyists of any corporate special interests, including many former congressmen and political staff. The environmental destruction won’t stop until we have clean, green , renewable energy and a comprehensive energy program based on safe sources of power – like solar and wind energy.
Great video. I understand your feelings about your home, and everyday live in horror as to what is happening. I would like to include my message.
Our planet is being destroyed, along with the inhabitants, one spill at a time.
BP’s deception comes as no surprise to any of us. Please American people think about it: If there had been no explosion in the beginning, would we have known about the gushing oil from the well? How many of the abandon oceans oil wells are gushing oil? Shouldn’t here be an agency that monitors all oil companies’ drilling action in our ocean beds? Oh, that’s right, there is! However, just like BP, Exxon and the rest of the oil companies, government official agencies are busy covering their lies, and dancing the Dance of Deliberate Deception. Over the last 80 years our US Government has become good at the side step dance also.
Crude oil continues to invade the Gulf; as BP, the US Government, and other official agencies monitoring the toxic crude, continues to FIDDLE. That is what I called the Dance of Deliberate Deception. No one will come forward with the intestinal fortitude, and declare the obvious – that crude oil is toxic to breathe. I have been told by OSHA that a medical study cannot be conducted until after 6 months of exposure. WHAT? There have been 21 years since the exposure of the crude oil in Prince William Sound, and no one is listening. So, after 6 months of workers in the gulf breathe in the crude oil, a study can be conducted? That leads us to believe that the government is holding up the rug, while BP sweeps known reports under the same rug, and the other agencies conduct the Dance of Deliberate Deception on top of the rug.
President Obama, how about admitting that the crude oil is toxic, and demand BP provide respirators for the oil cleanup workers, and compensation for the Gulf unemployment caused by the disaster.
In 1989 Exxon told the cleanup workers the same story, that the crude oil is not toxic. Some of us are living proof of the toxic exposure, and many others have died. The 21 years of our health issues should be an example that crude oil is toxic. Please view the YouTube video, and help get the message to Gulf residents, BP crude oil cleanup workers, and President Obama. Respirators need to be supplied to oil cleanup crews.
