This week: Of BP and the Gulf oil disaster, This Can’t Be Happening’s Dave Lindorff writes; “Even as BP’s blown well a mile beneath the surface in the Gulf of Mexico continues to gush forth an estimated 70,000 barrels of oil a day into the sea, and the fragile wetlands along the Gulf begin to get coated with crude, which is also headed into the Gulf Stream for a trip past the Everglades and on up the East Coast, the company is demanding that Canada lift its tight rules for drilling in the icy Beaufort Sea portion of the Arctic Ocean.”
Dave Lindorff is a long-time journalist and author, who is described at his website, ‘This Can’t be Happening’ as “a quixotic one-man effort to afflict the powerful.” Dave Lindorff in the first half.
