BP Oil Spill Catastrophe: The Real Story Filmed By James Fox
A great documentary film maker and recent guest on my radio show James Fox "Out of the Blue" and "I know what I saw" sent me this hard hitting short film he collected from the streets and people of New Orleans. Mr Fox put this together then and uploaded it to Youtube. The footage contains honest and open remarks , opinions and thoughts by the citizens from New Orleans. After Hurricane Katrina you can sense the outrage and frustration of these people from all walks of life, ages and races. The issue is this oil spill is definitely the worst environmental catastrophe in human history. A catastrophic enviromental disaster that seems to be in a sense swept under the rug so to speak . This incident will go down in the history books as the single biggest slap on the wrist for crimes on the planet by the oil industry. Mr Fox has done an amazing service by showcasing the plight of the people of New Orleans with this short film I am sure he is working on more filming and footage as we speak.
Mr Fox sent me a second video that he filmed from a private plane with local independent pilot. The two of them do a fly-over of the spill zone and examine the true depth of this disaster. Due to air restrictions they could not get lower them 3000 feet, despite the restrictions James Fox does show that the "clean up effort" in the marshlands are virtually little to none in reality.
In this latest video James Fox is speaking with a pilot off camera about Homeland Security contacting the pilot after he apparently breached the restricted airspace over the spill zone. This also suggests that there is a large Military presence and observance of this spill zone. It is very possible that Martial Law may be around the corner in the Gulf. This also implies the true nature of the "clean up effort" is to recapture the floating oil to ensure profits continue.
Mr James Fox sent me this next installment in the BP oil spill catastrophe that completely illustrates the extent and devastation of the spill zone. The video was also narrated by both Mr Fox and Marine Biologist, Dr Carl Safina President of Blue Ocean Institute who gives his professional opinion of the disaster, the true size and density of this mega environmental disaster, and most important in many ways who's at fault. Dr Safina insists that the dispersants released into the water were done so to almost hide the oil under the ocean surface of the Gulf of Mexico. Dr Safina also disagrees with allowing the oil companies to handle the clean up, perhaps his views on that subject should really be looked at especially with a disaster this enormous.
In this segment Mr Fox attends a BP protest at Orange Beach Alabama in an attempt by the locals to have BP stop in the use of toxic dispersants in the Gulf waters. There is a fear that these toxic dispersants banned in foreign countries may harm the seabed ecosystem there by damaging this already compromised waters There is also a movement to also block off Perdido Bay by the locals as well. The blocking of Perdido Bay would be an effort to try and protect this area from extensive oil contamination. This area is home to many endangered species, one such species is the bottlenose dolphin. The citizens in the footage are truly upset and heart broken by this devastating disaster and also by the little to no media coverage of their story hopefully after this video goes viral it will create awareness and send help to this area and it's people.
