Gulf oil spill: Suggestions of cover up with BP and Obama Administration on massive amount of oil being spilled
Reports about a cover up by oil giant BP and the Obama Administration as to how much oil the Deepwater Horizon accident is really spilling into the Gulf of Mexico are beginning to surface.
SkyTruth.com estimates the true spill rate is more than 1 million gallons a day, based on satellite and Coast Guard images.
At that rate, there is an estimated 21 million gallons of oil currently floating around the Gulf of Mexico.
Sources within the Obama administration, FEMA and the Corps of Engineers have been “resisting releasing any "damaging information" about the oil disaster, according to oilprice.com.
If unofficial estimates are accurate, the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill will be the worst human and environmental disaster in the history of the world.
Since the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded and sank some 20 days ago, the ecosystem along the shores of the Gulf of Mexico have been spared catastrophic impact, because wind and weather have kept the monstrous mass of black goo out at sea. However, in the coming days and weeks, it will become obvious that all wind-inspired luck is about to run out.
Some engineers believe that the 5,000 foot deep resivour that the Deepwater Horizon tapped, could go on poisoning the oceans of the world for up to two years, if BP is unable to stop the volcano of oil erupting into Gulf waters.
“If the ocean oil geyser is not stopped within 90 days, there will be irreversible damage to the marine eco-systems of the Gulf of Mexico, north Atlantic Ocean, and beyond,” the report added.
Currents carrying the toxic water around the globe will effect birds, fishing, marine life, and the humans that depend on our fragile environment to support life as we know it.
