I honestly have no idea but I don't see how aerobic bacteria would be worse than toxic oil plumes. The water can be re-oxygenated after the bacteria consume it but an oil spill puts a film over the water, stopping gas exchange, and then of course that oil washes onto shore and kills all the sea mammals that don't require oxygenate water.

...so you're apologizing on a national level, but not airing your message directly to the people most affected by your incompetence?

I live 25 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico, I see it about 5 times a night.

You envirohippies are going to love this one.

Really love this.

I mean really looooove this like I love Smallville.

Three days after the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico, the Dutch government offered to help.

It was willing to provide ships outfitted with oil-skimming booms, and it proposed a plan for building sand barriers to protect sensitive marshlands.

The response from the Obama administration and BP, which are coordinating the cleanup: “The embassy got a nice letter from the administration that said, ‘Thanks, but no thanks,'” said Geert Visser, consul general for the Netherlands in Houston.

Now, almost seven weeks later, as the oil spewing from the battered well spreads across the Gulf and soils pristine beaches and coastline, BP and our government have reconsidered.

U.S. ships are being outfitted this week with four pairs of the skimming booms airlifted from the Netherlands and should be deployed within days. Each pair can process 5 million gallons of water a day, removing 20,000 tons of oil and sludge.

At that rate, how much more oil could have been removed from the Gulf during the past month?

The uncoordinated response to an offer of assistance has become characteristic of this disaster's response. Too often, BP and the government don't seem to know what the other is doing, and the response has seemed too slow and too confused.

Federal law has also hampered the assistance. The Jones Act, the maritime law that requires all goods be carried in U.S. waters by U.S.-flagged ships, has prevented Dutch ships with spill-fighting equipment from entering U.S. coastal areas.


Free of charge too. Hahahaha

To clarify the earlier post, the Federal government turned the Dutch government's free help citing the Jones Act. Yes yes wonderful regulations for the win. We needs moar of that!

If they hadn't done that, we would be a head of schedule.

Moar great news.

Meh, I don't think government is THAT nefarious. Or stupid. People are losing fishing jobs more than they're getting oil cleanup jobs out of this spill.

I think most of it is the "We don't need help! America can take care of everything!" bravado.

Speaking of Kevin Costner, James Cameron was talking about the BP spill and how he could help.

http://www.examiner.com/x-27365-Youn...ould-get-VIDEO

While I loathe Titanic and Avatar, he comes off well in this (then again, Larry King Live is basically softball). He brings up an excellent point: The people who caused this are NOT the ones trying to fix it.

I wonder if the next Avatar will be about some liquid unobtanium polluting the oceans of Pandora

Who else thinks that this is America's Chernobyl? Actually in saying that, also a warning sign of the future decline of the US too.
