Exxon showed more sense three decades ago than now,
back at the same Malaysian oil and gas field it backed off from in 1981
because it would release massive amounts of carbon dioxide that would
accelerate climate change.
It’s time to end the era of fossil fuels and get on with changing
the world to cheaper, faster, and far cleaner sun, wind, and water power.
BP must be getting desperate about people catching onto what they did to the Gulf.
A BP video ad has been replaying itself every few minutes beside various
news stories since yesterday, claiming two years after the oil disaster
(“spill” doesn’t describe it) “the beaches are open for everyone to enjoy!”
says “We are helping economic and environmental restoration efforts in the Gulf Coast as part of our ongoing commitment to the region following the Deepwater Horizon accident in 2010”.
Neither the ad nor the website says BP actually cleaned up the oil.
Because they didn’t.
It’s still there, as is the even more toxic “dispersant” Corexit BP
dumped on top of the oil to make it sink.
Both are busily poisoning dolphins, fish, birds, and humans.
