Obama, Bush Exempt Offshore Drilling from Env. Impact Studies – Oil Spills & Paper Mills 12

Posted on June 20, 2010 by bp complaints

Permits for offshore oil drilling, including deep water drilling and specifically the Deepwater Horizon, were rubber stamped without environmental impact studies under the Bush administration, and shamefully, under the Obama administration as well. These so-called “categorical exclusions” exempting them from an environmental impact study are reserved for projects that could never possibly harm the environment, like building a hiking trail or an outhouse. Well, we’ve built a very big outhouse, and its contents have hit the fan. How many trees have died to print these meaningless permits that we rubber stamp with no government oversight? Well, this video contains a little information on the paper industry as well, specifically on Botnia, the Finnish paper mill in Uruguay that was recently the center of international controversy, at least here in South America, due to accusations of treaty violations and pollution of a shared river on the border between Uruguay and Argentina. The international court just passed down a ruling… and showed a clear bias in favor of big business. They claimed the evidence of pollution presented by Argentina was unreliable because Argentina has an interest in protecting its people from pollution… but the evidence presented by Uruguay, compiled BY THE PAPER MILL ITSELF, was admissable and proved that there was no contamination. The governments of the world have been taken over by big business interests, and every industry, from the coal

Who was ignoring Ken Abbott 2 months ago? Everybody – including the public, government agencies, elected officials, newspeople – and BP. Now when a whistle blows – listen. NEW ORLEANS — The Deepwater Horizon leak is now leading to safety concerns on another BP rig in the Gulf of Mexico. The BP Atlantis is located in more than 7000 feet of water, 150 miles south of New Orleans. According to a lawsuit filed Monday in Houston, the rig is plagued by some of the same possible safety problems as the Horizon. It claims the Department of the Interior allowed Atlantis to operate without completed engineering blueprints needed to operate the rig safely. “This is not a mere paperwork. Without these as-built drawings, the people that are working on these rigs, are flying blind from the standpoint of how to safely operate BP rigs in the Gulf of Mexico,” said plaintiffs’ attorney Mikal Watts. Watts represents the environmental group Food and Water Watch and former BP sub-contractor Ken Abbott. BP fired Abbott, a project control supervisor, last year after he voiced concerns about a lack of documentation on Atlantis. “At BP, I beat my head against the wall, they didn’t care, the government agencies didn’t care,” said Abbott. Abbott said a congressional investigation into the Deepwater Horizon spill indicated that BP could not locate detailed drawings for the rig’s blowout preventer and that workers wasted half a day trying to shut off a valve that had already been disconnected. “BP and

Studies suggest MMS knew blowout preventers had ‘critical’ flaws
The federal agency charged with setting safety standards for offshore oil exploration failed to act on at least four warnings about vulnerabilities in subsea blowout preventers, the critical safety device that failed to shut down the Gulf oil spill when the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded April 20.
