Dying, dead marine wildlife paint dark, morbid picture of Gulf Coast following oil spill

"When we found this dolphin it was filled with oil. Oil was just pouring out of it. It was the saddest darn thing to look at," said a BP contract worker who took the Daily News on a surreptitious tour of the wildlife disaster unfolding in Louisiana.

BP paid for officials' meals, airfare and polar bear trip

The embattled oil and gas giant BP paid for a slew of travel and dining arrangements for senior government officials in the years leading up to the massive oil leak in the Gulf. Critics say BP got too close with regulators, neutering the government's safety watchdogs.

How to blame Obama for the Gulf spill

The American Prospect
by Tim Fernholz

06/02/10

With the disappointing news that the latest attempt — the evocatively named ‘top kill’ — to seal the leaking oil well in the Gulf of Mexico has failed, political pressure on President Barack Obama has increased. It’s important, though, to understand how the government failed if we want to hold the administration accountable in the right way. Calls for the president to do more — personified by James Carville’s ranting or Maureen Dowd asking the president to emote more — seem designed to encourage theater rather than fix the mess. The problem with these critiques is that in interactions between government and business, the government’s responsibility is before-the-fact, not after. Obama can be faulted for failing to make corner-cutting BP play it safe in the Gulf, but it’s not clear what more he can do to stop the leak...

‘Shocking images of oil-drenched birds in Louisiana’

[*Newsweek* said Thursday that BP and the Coast Guard are making efforts to “prevent news photographers from surveying the catastrophe” in the Gulf of Mexico.[1] -- “Last night, though, Associated Press photographer Charles Reidel captured these images of pelicans and other birds struggling in the surf of Grand Terre Island, La., one of the shore lines closest to the spill.” --Mark]

Endangered Species Act: Noah's Ark or Titanic?

Craig Collins, Truthout: "It's heart breaking and enraging to witness the toxic assault being visited upon the wildlife and the people of the Gulf. Heart-breaking because, as a SCUBA diver, I have come to cherish the awe-inspiring world that lives beneath the sea; and I have no doubt that the carnage we're witnessing along the shores pales in comparison to the unseen catastrophe unfolding beneath the waves. Enraging because the toxic assault being visited upon the wildlife and coastal communities of the Gulf could have been prevented."
