History will view Obama’s response as too little, too late, too passive. New findings by a research vessel with a grant that ran out today show walls of oil-saturated death, miles long and wide, depleting oxygen from ocean water.
Obama must commandeer BP’s resources, pass immediate legislation ELIMINATING all limits on ALL corporate liability for damages, & fund at least a billion dollars of emergency research & science funding for assessing and analyzing all aspects of the gulf catastrophe– marine, estuary, economic.
On Friday, President Obama lashed out at oil companies for finger pointing and blame passing. The problem is, he’s doing the same thing, one iteration higher.
