BP Oil Disaster-Day 56
- Last night, BP presented a plan to the United States which would capture more than 50,000 barrels of oil by June. Of course, some experts believe a significantly higher amount is leaked per day. Guess it’s better than nothing.
- Also, yesterday White House officials demanded that BP set up a special fund to pay oil spill claims.
- Obama made his fourth trip the Gulf today, going as far as to compare it to 9/11:
“In the same way that our view of our vulnerabilities and our foreign policy was shaped profoundly by 9/11, I think this disaster is going to shape how we think about the environment and energy for many years to come.”
This will be a daily update until the leak is stopped or BP no longer exists. Whichever happens first…
