Tony Hayward, the asshole in charge during the BP disaster in the Gulf will now be the executive expert in charge of environment and safety for a hardrock sulfide mining operation in Minnesota.
If you’ve noticed, there’s been a near media blackout on the Deepwater oil rig catastrophe, after it consumed almost every minute of the 24 hour news cycle for weeks. The reason for this may be that BP has realized they’re in super deep shit considering that the Deepwater rig had to punch a hole in a massive undersea volcano to get to the oil and we may not actually have the technology to keep every drop of oil from this oil pocket from spewing into the Gulf.
This is footage that was taken from a boat off of the shore of the Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge in Alabama. With BP and the federal government limiting footage from the gulf coast for whatever reason, this is a sad reminder that the gulf will be ruined for many years to come.
