As shown by the following videos, BP and government representatives are still keeping scientists and reporters away from areas impacted by oil.
WEAR ABC news documented yesterday that federal agents are preventing reporters from digging in the sand to look for oil:
Award-winning investigative reporter Dahr Jamail says in a new interview that a federal agent confiscated Gulf oil samples:
Representatives of the oil spill commission are harassing independent scientists who are finding contamination in the Gulf, and questioning whether they have permits to even take samples:
Scientists’ samples have been confiscated by the police and – according to someone calling in to NPR’s Science Friday show and claiming to be an adjunct professor at Texas A & M – by homeland security:
And as Newsweek notes:
Since the gulf oil spill first began gushing on April 20, Linda Hooper-Bui’s research group has repeatedly run up against the authorities. In May, a Fish and Wildlife Service officer confiscated insect samples that one of Hooper-Bui’s students had been collecting on a publicly accessible beach in southern Alabama. On research trips in Louisiana, her students have been stopped by sheriff’s deputies—one time after driving 150 miles—simply for attempting to study the ecological impact of oil and dispersants. Time and again, they were told that they couldn’t access their normal research sites unless they were working for BP or the government.
obama’s gubmint wouldn’t allow this so it never happened.
correction: obama’s most transparent gubmint ever wouldn’t allow this so it never happened.
Maybe you don’t live here but unfortunately that government you talk about is my government also…not just Obama’s even though he looks to be the fascist lacky in chief.
Don’t get it. If oil stocks are very high, and going higher, that is, there is more oil in storage than ever, why should the price of oil be about to shoot up? Is that what the article is saying is going to happen? Why should we diversify into oil commodity? Or is the article trying to say we should get out of it?

Sounds like a bad Science fiction movie!!!! Very Weird
BP killed our Gulf Chernobyl killed too

Flash back proves that some of mankind has no respect for our planet and less respect for other people.
Go through the pictures to see where we are headed in our Gulf Coast that was at one time the breadbasket of the southeast.
