BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico…. BP doing it again….. will it ever end?

April 25, 2014

Dead_Dolphin2_280x170NWF     Just got in another update from the National Wildlife Federation and want to share it with all of my readers.  BP’s oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico four years ago is still killing our wildlife.  But if you listen to BP, they will have one and all believe life in the Gulf of Mexico is better than ever thanks to all of their hard work and commitment to the people, wildlife and environment after the unfortunate accident at the  Deepwater Horizon site.   Anyone, who has read {or wants to read} my past posts on this topic {on this blog} can clearly see my disdain for all involved in those criminal and negligent acts.  Indeed those involved were found guilty by US Federal Laws and are to be held accountable.  But they are trying to still get away with murder and it just makes me sick!  I will now post here the update I was sent.  It may still end up with a link to donate to NWF funds to help fight back against these MEGA BUCK corporations but I am not asking you to donate {you can if you want to, as it goes to NWF not me or my blog in any way, shape or form} only to read, be informed and pass the word and outrage on…… even to your elected officials or these companies involved!

Since we broke the news last week about BP’s attacks to the National Wildlife Federation, the response from supporters like you has been overwhelming.

The generous outpouring of support is helping continue critical efforts to speak up for wildlife harmed by the oil spill in the Gulf. Together, we are fighting back against BP’s misinformation campaign—and rallying wildlife advocates to ensure that BP is held fully accountable for the harm they’ve caused.

But, BP is upping its efforts to deny even the most basic science.

Sincerely,

Andy

     Since the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, more than 900 dead dolphins have been found in the oil spill area.

But, BP has been spreading misinformation from the first days of the spill—from trying to keep reporters away from oiled dead dolphins to trying to hide the massive amount of oil gushing from the Deepwater Horizon site. Now the oil giant’s campaign of misinformation is in high gear.

Incredibly, last week BP is denying the science of even the most basic oil impacts on wildlife and attacking the National Wildlife Federation for taking reporters into the disaster zone!

     Studies have shown that dolphins in a heavily-oiled section of the Louisiana coast have lung damage immune system problems, and their teeth are falling out. Scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration have determined there is strong evidence that BP’s oil is what is making these dolphins so sick.

But BP is now telling reporters there’s no real evidence that dolphins were affected by the oil, and instead has chosen to downplay the science and attack the messengers.

  Now, just days after the National Wildlife Federation published a report looking at how fourteen species of wildlife are still suffering four years into the oil disaster, BP is dramatically escalating its misinformation campaign.

It is up to committed, caring wildlife advocates like you to help fight back for dolphins—and stop BP from hiding the horrible harm they’ve caused.

        With your help, we can stand up for dolphins, and ensure that BP pays every penny needed to restore sensitive wildlife habitat in the waters, shorelines, bays and estuaries of the Gulf from all the damage it caused.

Together, we can rally hundreds of thousands of wildlife advocates across the country who care about Gulf wildlife and pressure the U.S. Secretary of Commerce to make sure wildlife habitat in the Gulf of Mexico is fully restored.

Our work is not over until BP is held fully accountable for its negligence, and we have done everything that can be done to maximize the amount of BP penalties spent on Gulf research and restoration.

Thanks for all you do to protect wildlife.
