Disappearing Oil: Do You Believe in Magic?

You might have noticed recent claims from BP and the US Government that clean up of the BP Oil Spill is basically finished and troubles are coming to an end.



These claims are simply political ploys to suggest to the public that the largest oil spill in history is now behind us.


We all remember when the oil was gushing and massive plumes of oil would suddenly turn up missing, right?  Well, now that it’s happening on a more massive scale and major amounts of oil are now missing, our leaders and corporate representatives are trying to tell us it’s just…gone.


Out of sight, out of mind.


But it’s not out of sight. These pictures were taken within the last week in Louisiana.  Massive amounts of oil can still be seen in the water, on the beaches, and below the sand. Tar balls and huge oil plumes continue to hit all over the Gulf, but the Government agrees with BP that the oil is gone.



To make the problem worse, the representatives at BP refuse to give a final, concrete date for the relief well to be fully completed. Their lack of organization  and willingness to individually take responsibility for problems that occurred only prolong and collude the situation.


Ben Craw of the Huffington Post created this video montage of the media and our Government leaders feeding us their hyped up, nonsensical “mission accomplished” jargon:

    BP makes me sick. Since when does oil just up and disappear!! That is ridiculous! Sorry not gonna happen. Any politician who believes that Americans are going to believe the ridiculous idea that oil just evaporates, which it does not, is not very good at reading their public. I think it is annoying how the only pictures that are seem in reference to the oil spill are all the people swimming in the areas that the oil has been cleaned up. The pictures provided are an excellent example of the beaches that still aren’t clean. I am also sure that the animals wouldn’t agree that the clean up is almost over! Thanks for bringing this excellent point up:)!

      Thanks for reading! I agree with you, it is actually quite insulting that BP, let alone major politicians, would think that the American public is dumb enough to accept such a blatant lie. It once again shows how people really think in terms of “black and white.” Either the oil is there, or it isn’t. Most people find it hard to realize there is a massive gray area in pretty much any situation you encounter. Chances are, if you get in an argument with someone, you are both right in some ways and wrong in some ways.

      If BP came out and explained the situation without trying to skew it, we might have more confidence in them. But they do that every time, so why should we believe what they say in the future? They are the ones releasing an internal investigation, but we will all be taking it with a grain of salt. It seems that BP’s disorganized nature led to the oil spill, but also their own PR disasters.
