>Since May 17, 2010, Renergie has submitted unsolicited proposals for the purpose of using three Panamax class crude tankers for the collection and on board separation of the BP oil spill to every federal agency, state agency; state elected official and federal elected official with even a remote interest in the BP oil spill.
The USCG response to Renergie’s proposal stated, “Unfortunately, the Coast Guard does not currently have a mission and is not hiring contractors. However, if BP requests names, I will recommend and forward your company.”
Oh my goodness the US Coast Guard admits BP is in command!

Now we find that a Taiwanese-flagged vessel, named “A Whale,” which is 3 1/2 football fields long and looms 10 stories high – outfitted with 12 vents on either side of its bow, which experts hope will be able to suck up as many as 21 million gallons of oil-tainted water each day – has offered its services in the attempted clean up. See video link below.
The boat docked Wednesday in Louisiana, where most smaller skimmers have been forced off the water for days because of the threat of rough seas from Hurricane Alex. The Coast Guard is meeting with the big skimmer’s owners in anticipation of giving it a whirl as soon as today.
The technology this ship employs has never been used before. Well neither has there been an environmental disaster of this size before either!
The Coast Guard, with approval from the EPA, will have final say on whether the ship is cleared for work in the Gulf. Its owners are also negotiating with BP, the British oil company whose rented rig exploded in April, sparking the spill. It’s paying for all cleanup operations.
But wait just a moment – I thought The President of the USA said he was taking control of this situation for the American people? Why is there so much toing and froing going on with paperwork and permission slips while the Gulf Coast is dying? Time is of the essence here and bureaucracy / administration is sitting idly by and playing power games!
Heaven Help us please. Mr. President IF you are in charge then KICK BUTT, there are far too many agencies and paper pushers miring the mix!
