Sign the Petition on the BP Oil Spill
Do your part - send congress a message about this oil spill!
(Authors note added 5-13-2012: The effects of the BP oil spill still continue today. This article however can also be used for educational and historical purposes)
After following the BP oil spill in the Gulf since it began, I've watched as journalists have been repeatedly censored and the mainstream media has been censored. Meanwhile we face the worst ecological and possible doomsday scenario known to man right now - the free flowing oil volcano that has been unleashed courtesy of British Petroleum - right into the Gulf of Mexico.
Despite all the fancy videos and press conferences showing us the magnificent efforts of BP to control the oil spill, we stand by and watch helplessly as tarballs and oils slicks mixed with toxic chemicals invade our coastlines. So toxic that they are killing countless species of wildlife and possibly depleting the oxygen of our wildlife by 75%. Recent reports are saying that the toxic dispersant Corexit is producing dead zones in the gulf, basically suffocating the sea creatures and also making people sick out at sea AND ON LAND.
Oil "dispersant" Corexit is 4 TIMES MORE TOXIC THAN OIL!
BP's favorite dispersant Corexit 9500 is being sprayed at the oil gusher on the ocean floor. Corexit is also being air sprayed across hundreds of miles of oil slicks all across the gulf.
STOP THE FLOW NOW!
What's even more disturbing is that some mainstream media have even reported the possible "doomsday" scenario we are facing - and they too are being censored. Not only are we NOT being told the truth but the truth is being deliberately covered up.
Why? Is BP afraid to tell us what's really happening down there? Do they think showing us attempted repairs of the oil leak will lull us into complacency? Do they not realize that there are many of us that have known for weeks that the leak they have been showing us is not the only leak? That we don't know about the possible problems with the seabed floor? In this technological age do they honestly think we are that naive and STUPID?
Growing evidence has shown BP to be woefully inadequate at addressing the mess they have made and I for one don't trust that they even have the capability to clean it up and handle what they've created at this point. When BP starts taking kids ideas for stopping the oil leak it really gives one moment to pause, doesn't it?

BP buys Google ads for “Seize BP” searches
There is also a grassroots movement gaining momentum that has discovered that BP has also bought ads for such search terms as "seize BP". "Deepwater Horizon" and "Oil Spill" .More about this here. An excerpt from their site:
How outrageous is this? Google “Seize BP” and the first thing you’ll see is a BP ad about its “efforts” to address the Gulf of Mexico crisis. BP is squandering millions of dollars in deceitful self-promotion ads when working families across the Gulf Cost are desperately awaiting compensation and relief. BP also purchased ads for “Deepwater Horizon”, “oil spill” and other search terms. This method of “news management” has become a favorite tool not only of BP but of other corporate criminals when they face a crisis."

Letter to Congress about the BP Gulf Oil Spill
Take Action Against The Oil Disaster Now!
Sign the Petition :5,236 Letters and Emails Sent So Far
Dear Mr. President and Honorable members of
the United States Congress:
We, the undersigned, demand that you take the following actions immediately:
1- Remove British Petroleum (all of its officers and executives) from control of and participation in the response to the current oil disaster at the Deepwater Horizon Well. (Their actions to date have been a travesty: blocking media access; lying; ineptness; criminal negligence, etc)
2- That you order discontinuation of all chemical dispersants immediately. (They are toxic and causing more harm and killing marine life and driving the oil deeper where it can not be recovered)
3- Deploy all available Supertankers to the spill region to begin skimming operations. (Which has been shown to be 85% effective in recapture of oil from ocean waters in spills of this magnitude).
4- Employ any and all means to stop the flow of oil from the damaged well in the most expeditious means possible even if that means detonation and destruction of the well.
5- Indite and prosecute the representatives and executives from BP, Haliburton, and Trans-ocean responsible for this disaster and the negligent response to it.
6- Seize all BP assets in North America and hold them collateral until full restitution is made for the destruction caused by this disaster.

Based on recently revised estimates, BP's ruptured oil well at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico continues to leak 25,000 to 30,000 barrels of oil a day. The new figures suggest that an amount of oil equivalent to the Exxon Valdez disaster could still
