"Feds refuse to provide spill response plans for top oil companies drilling in Gulf

MOBILE, Ala. -- A month ago, as BP struggled to contain an oil spill that it estimated at 200,000 gallons a day, the Press-Register reported that the company's federal permit documents stated that it could handle a spill of 12.6 million gallons a day.

BP's documents also said that it could skim 17 million gallons of oil a day; thus far it has skimmed just 2 million gallons in seven weeks.

The documents -- BP's Regional Oil Spill Response Plan -- are riddled with inaccurate claims and errors, including an online address for an equipment supplier that instead links to an unrelated Japanese website.
In May, the newspaper asked the Department of Interior and the U.S. Minerals Management Service for the response plans of the five major companies drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, arguing that the public had an immediate need to know whether permits for other deepwater wells had been granted based on similarly flawed claims.

Neither federal agency would supply the plans without a Freedom of Information Act request, which the newspaper then filed.

Who was it around here that launched that thread stating that the spill wasn't as bad as was reported?

Oh yeah, that nutcase from the RW blog, A$$h**e-Zealot-Bull$htter's site, LittleWillieWonkie...

Figures.

Who is Henry Frod?

BTW ... the automobile was invented by either Ferdinand Verbiest or Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot, depending on which source you believe. Cugnot's machine was actually built ... Verbiest's machine was too small to carry humans and was more of a toy.

The modern automobile is generally attributed to Karl Benz ... Henry Frod seems to be unknown to history.

BTW ... this isn't even close to being the worst eco-disaster in history.

Stop with the apocalyptic fantasies ... it's bad but it's not nearly as bad as the Goremons are acting.
