BP's new summary of chemical testing, posted to its website this week after a nearly monthlong absence of new data, also makes notable revisions to the company's public characterization of the health risks facing Gulf workers.

Oil spill raises concerns about air quality along coastal Louisiana | New Orleans News, Local News, Breaking News, Weather | wwltv.com | Gulf Oil SpillNEW ORLEANS -- There are effects from the oil spill that you can see, like oil washing ashore, and those that you can't, like when oil compounds breakdown and go airborne. "We don't want to be alarmist, but we want to be realistic," said Marylee Orr, with the Louisiana Environmental Action Network, an advocacy group. For several weeks now, the federal Environmental Protection Agency has been tracking what's in the air, by using a mobile truck and seven monitoring stations, located mainly in St. Bernard and Plaquemines Parishes. They are looking for evidence of several compounds, including Hydrogen Sulfide, particulate matter and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's), like Benzene, a known carcinogen. "These pollutants could pose a health risk to local communities and this monitoring is essential to ensure that communities are protected as BP takes direct response actions," EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson said during a Senate Committee Hearing on Tuesday.
Finally, what some of us fear is being taken seriously — that Obama might declare a state of emergency, install martial law, suspend the upcoming elections, all of which then triggers a military coup. This is an excellent calm, rational analysis of the likelihood and feasibility of such a scenario, written by the consulting editor of . It is most reassuring. America is a rule-governed country, with millions of really smart and feisty individuals whom the new technology of the Internet (and blogs) have made extremely well-informed. Obama or any fool who dreams of subverting the Constitution to seize dictatorial control of this country has no idea who Americans are and what retribution he’s courting. We’ve been hearing a lot of comments recently about a national coup d’etat scheduled for sometime in late summer or early fall and designed to circumvent the coming Democrat debacle in the 2010 elections.
(NaturalNews) After weeks of silence on the issue, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finally decided to go public with the list of ingredients used to manufacture Corexit , the chemical dispersant used by BP in the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster. There are two things about this announcement that deserve our attention: First, the ingredients that have been disclosed are extremely toxic, and second, why did the EPA protect the oil industry's "trade secrets" for so long by refusing to disclose these ingredients until now?
Janine Wedel has written extensively on how the “shadow elite” rule the world and about the “flexians” – the movers and shakers of the shadow elite who glide across borders, and structure overlapping (and not fully revealed) roles in government, business, media, and think tanks to serve their own agendas. Wedel says that flexians wear many hats both within and outside of government, and use their networks of contacts to influence policy – are warping our democracy and the rule of law. Peter Sutherland is the quintessential flexian. According to his September 2009 bio : Peter Sutherland is chairman of BP plc (1997 – current). He is also chairman of Goldman Sachs International (1995 – current).
