The following comes via my BP whistleblower source boricua1968. He provided me with all kinds of details about Gulf laborers being given false safety certification, disregard for clean-up workers' safety, cutting corners, etc. You can find my piece here.
I discussed that particular post today on the Nicole Sandler radio show, mentioning that I'd posted a video about how the toxic sludge collected from the Gulf beaches were heavily guarded and kept secret. Apparently boricua1968 was listening.
Today he e-mailed me with this:
BP gets fined by the Government on how much oil is spilled minus the amount recovered. There were times when the workers would take ‘absorbent’ boom off of the beaches and waterways that were just dirty (not necessarily contaminated with petroleum) and that gets weighed and disposed of in the same decon as the oil…that weight increases the amount of ‘recovery’ even if there was no oil on it. If you were allowed to see inside the waste area, you would see that there is lots of waste with no oil…you cannot see that.
That answers that.
