Many of the workers cleaning up the BP spill are out of work because of the BP spill. They can’t fish and they need a paycheck to feed their families. But if history repeats, they are taking a huge risk.
Warning To Gulf Volunteers: Almost Every Cleanup Worker From The 1989 Exxon Valdez Disaster Is Now Dead
Average lifespan of Exxon Valdez workers is 51. BP won’t pay the workers if they wear a respirator. They won’t tell the workers what is in the dispersants.
The workers report flu-like symptoms. I had flu-like symptoms after I spent a couple of hours filming the Ruggieros lighting their methane seep bubbles. I had flu-like symptoms after exposure to the methane plume in Flower Mound when we were doing the methane mapping. I had flu-like symptoms after waiting at the Ruggieros for the TCEQ to arrive and test the emissions that were boiling from the Aruba gas well.

I hope you are not close to 51 years old with your death defying stories of exposure.
Watching the video from CNN, it is incomprehensible to believe BP has the legal right, not to disclose those chemicals. Make sure all the BP Executives are out there, side by side with these workers that are getting sick. If the executives got sick, then disclose "may" come forth. However, on the other hand, it would be a real kick in the pants when the executives find out they are expendable too!
You lie by posting these facts. Why, if all the clean-up workers died, was there not a class action suit? Lawyers would jump on this like a hen on a June bug!
What? I lie? Ahm, facts are just that, FACTS. CNN researched and found that the Valdez workers have nearly all died early. I understand it's shocking but just because YOU find a FACT shocking DOES NOT mean the FACT is a lie or that I have lied by posting it here.
Try to keep up.
To Anon 8:18 am: Did you watch the CNN video. Are you saying CNN lied because CNN said that, not TxSharon. If it is a lie, where are all the law suits against CNN for that news piece. As you pointed out, lawyers would be all over that as it is on tape.
Look how anon. 8:18 even started, "You lie by posting these FACTS." Facts are not lies.
Our so called "Judicial" system in Tx (and other places also) is bought off by O&G, big time. No help from the crooked judicial system!
