How is it that the top 5 oil companies have almost identical oil spill remediation non-plans that all include protecting “walruses” in the Gulf Coast?
Was there a Cliff Notes environmental plan ghostwriter for BP, ExxonMobil, Chevron, Shell and ConocoPhillips oil companies?
Rachel Maddow interviewed Congressman Edward Markey on June 16th and he knew something was strange when all the environmental clean-up plans for potential oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico were 90% identical and uncannily included:
- a reference to “walruses” that have not existed in the Gulf for millions of years and
- a reference to the same supposed “expert” who is deceased since 2005.
“In preparation for this hearing, Congress reviewed the oil spill safety response plans for all the top five oil companies.
What we found was that Exxon, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Shell and BP have response plans that are virtually identical. The plans cite identical response capabilities and tout identical ineffective equipment. In some cases, they use the exact same words and made the exact same assurances.”
It is remarkable how all 5 BIG oil companies had virtually the same “cookie-cutter” clean-up plan for the Gulf of Mexico. Imagine that! Meaow!
Waxman on Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill & Drilling Safety Plans
Representative Henry Waxman, Chairman of the Energy & Commerce Subcommittee on Energy & Environment said in the above video at the recent hearing with the Big 5 Oil Executives that each of the oil-spill “cookie-cutter” 500 page contingency plans for the Gulf of Mexico of:
are no better prepared to deal with a major oil spill than BP.
Waxman also stated: “There are no walruses in the Gulf.”
