Scientists are estimating that the RIVER OF OIL in our Gulf is flowing at the rate of 80,000 bpd not 5,000 bpd and that the oxygen levels have already dropped 30%. Yet BP refuses to let them make scientific measurements.
“The answer is no to that,” a BP spokesman, Tom Mueller, said on Saturday. “We’re not going to take any extra efforts now to calculate flow there at this point. It’s not relevant to the response effort, and it might even detract from the response effort.”
How in bloody hell does BP have the freaking, fracking right to deny anyone anything at this point. WHAT? Do they own the ocean now?
BP has resisted entreaties from scientists that they be allowed to use sophisticated instruments at the ocean floor that would give a far more accurate picture of how much oil is really gushing from the well.
