The town River Ridge is up river from New Orleans and near the city’s airport.

It rains nearly everyday in New Orleans during the summer months. 

What the Bush-Cheney administration failed to do with the levee failures and the non-relief and non-rebuilding efforts, they accomplished by permitting BP to commence an insanely reckless drilling project

This was NOT a normal well. 

It’s in 5,000 feet of water and is reputed to be close to 30,000 into the earth. 

In Russia, where such super deep wells were pioneered, they are only drilled on land and far from human habitations.

At least one prominent oil industry safety specialist warned in writing against the drilling of this well. 

This permit was made possible by Dick Cheney’s gutting of the federal Minerals Management Service and the Obama administration’s very cosy relationship with the oil industry. 

Not an “Act of God,” not an accident, not an unlucky break. 

This catastrophe, which will prove to be bigger than Chernobyl, is the natural outcome of corruption completely out of control.

One thing you can count on: 

The victims – and there will be millions of them – will receive no help and no compensation for their losses.
