Oil Well Blowout May Never End

By Washington's Blog

The likelihood of a complete collapse is difficult to assess, in part, engineers and legislators say, because BP hasn't shared enough information to evaluate the situation. But a handful of clues suggest that the company is concerned. On Friday, BP spokesperson Toby Odone acknowledged that the 45-ton stack of the blowout preventer was tilting noticeably, but said the company could not attribute it to down-hole leaks.

BP Welcomes You to the Apocalypse

By Mark Morford

Toxic rain and supersonic tsunamis, the end of North America as we know it. Done. Finished. Certainly, one of those two scenarios is guaranteed to come to pass, right? Maybe, if we're really lucky, even both?

BP Has Built An Artificial Island To Get Around Offshore Drilling Ban In Alaska

BP plans to begin drilling two miles under the sea just miles away from a delicate wildlife reserve in Alaska. The company will get around the deep-water moratorium by constructing an artificial island -- 31 acres of gravel -- and registering as an onshore rig. Not exactly the safest operation, reports Rolling Stone.

Vast amounts of methane in Gulf spill pose threat

Vast amounts of natural gas contained in crude escaping from the blown Gulf of Mexico oil well could pose a serious threat to marine life by creating "dead zones" where oxygen is so depleted that nothing lives.

70 percent of Louisiana businesses applying for oil spill loans, state complains

Gulf Oil Spill's Wildlife Toll: Sharks Near Shore, Turtles Incinerated

Patrik Jonsson, The Christian Science Monitor: "A sunbathing family spots a beached baby dolphin covered in oil from the Gulf oil spill. The family tries to scrape off the oil until a wildlife officer, jaw hard-set, carries it to shore. On its way to a sea mammal rescue center in Panama City, the dolphin dies."

As Risks for Oil and Gas Grow, USSF Offers Change

Sarah Laskow, The Media Consortium: "BP oil has been spilling into the Gulf of Mexico for more than two months, and while attention has focused there, deepwater oil drilling is just one of many risky methods of energy extraction that industry is pursuing. Gasland, Josh Fox's documentary about the effects of hydrofracking, a new technique for extracting natural gas, was broadcast this week on HBO. In the film, Fox travels across the country visiting families whose water has turned toxic since gas companies began drilling in their area."

BP Killing Endangered Sea Turtles in "Burn Fields"

Video

Living on a Dying Delta

Dahr Jamail, Dahr Jamail's Dispatches: "Our first full day in Louisiana finds us venturing south from New Orleans to Houma, a town about an hours drive to the southwest. It is from here we are to take a flight over the marsh to inspect the damage, thus far, caused by the ongoing BP oil catastrophe."

Fending For Themselves

Dahr Jamail, Truthout: "Theresa Dardar is a member of the Pointe-au-Chien Indian Tribe. They are a small community of self-described Indians that live in southern Louisiana along a small stretch of the Bayou Pointe-au-Chien. Now, oil from the BP disaster threatens their very existence."

Mitigating Annihilation

Dahr Jamail: "From the air, the area north of Grand Isle, Louisiana, much of it around Barataria Bay, looks like scorched earth. This area has been and is heavily afflicted by BP's oil. The so-called cleanup efforts, including laying out booms to supposedly prevent oil from destroying more marsh and killing more wildlife, are a farce.Opaque, multi-color sheen stains much of the bay and is visible in countless inlets that snake their way into the marsh."

Hell Has Come to South Louisiana

Dahr Jamail, Dahr Jamail's Dispatches: "Clint Guidry is a shrimper from Lafitte, Louisiana. As we sit together, he shows me a picture of his house with 18 inches of water in it as a result of Hurricane Ike in 2008. In his deep voice, he looks me in the eye and says, 'My fear is repeating this situation, but with this water with oil on top of it.'"
