Oil from Gulf of Mexico spill 'nears Florida beaches'
Thursday, 3 June 2010
A sheen of oil from the Gulf of Mexico spill is nearing the white sand beaches of north-west Florida, officials say.
The slick, containing thousands of tar balls, is only nine miles (15km) from Pensacola on the Florida "panhandle".
"It's inevitable that we will see it on the beaches," said Keith Wilkins, an Escambia County official.
Meanwhile, BP's efforts to cap the leaking well got back on track as a saw that had become stuck in a thick pipe on the sea bed for hours was freed.
The company is attempting to contain the spill from the well by cutting off the fractured pipe and sealing it with a cap.
Coast Guard Admiral Thad Allen said crews were shooting chemical dispersants at the oil now leaking out of the new cut.

A Series Of Lucky Coincidences Involving Goldman Sachs And BP plc
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 06/01/2010
Earlier, when observing the US AG disclosure of a civil and criminal investigation into BP plc, we noted in passing that BP's former Chairman, Peter Sutherland, who left the firm is a Chairman of Goldman Sachs International. Mr. Sutherland holds some other interesting titles, including a position on the Trilateral Commission, he was a chairman of the London School of Economics in 2008, he is a UN special representative for migration and development; he was the founding director-general of the World Trade Organisation, he had previously served as director general of GATT since July 1993 and was instrumental in concluding the Uruguay GATT Round Negotiations. Needless to say, we focused on the Goldman relationship. When digging deeper, we uncovered some amusing correlations, most notably between the BP plc sellside ratings by Goldman BP analyst Michelle della Vigna and the Goldman Sachs Asset Management holdings of BP plc. These are summarized on the attached chart.

I happened to notice this article today and see you had already posted some information on it.
Kevin Costner tells Congress of his oil spill plan

Kevin Costner could have cleaned up Exxon Valdez spill in one week
June 10 2010
However, when Costner tried to market the product a decade ago; his “enthusiasm for the machine was met with apathy.” He talked to everyone—a real "whose, who” list of people that should have wanted the technology, but he was shrugged off and told they were too expensive and there was “no need.”
Costner testified before the House Energy and Environment subcommittee in congress on Wednesday, and chastised the oil industry and the federal government, but he also said that everyone shares the blame.
"I come before you as a discouraged U.S. citizen and an entrepreneur with a partial solution to the tragedy unfolding in the Gulf,” said Costner. "It was hard for me to fathom how we could engineer nuclear power and put a man on the moon but somehow not muster the technology to clean up an oil disaster of our own making."

BP eyes showdown with US govt on liability-BP source
LONDON Wed Jun 9, 2010
June 9 (Reuters) - Oil major BP (BP.L) believes it may be heading for a showdown with the White House over ever- increasing demands that it cover costs related to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, a BP source said on Wednesday.
"At some point a line has to be drawn," the source said.
Earlier on Wednesday, U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar told a Senate hearing he would ask BP to repay the salaries of any workers laid off because of the six-month moratorium on deepwater exploratory drilling imposed by the U.S. government after the spill.
BP has said it will pay for the clean-up and direct damages to those affected by the spill, such as fisherman. But the source said the moratorium was a government decision, and so the costs related to it were a different matter.
The company declined comment.
Salazar's comments helped push BP's New York-listed American Depositary Receipts down 15 percent on Wednesday. [ID:nN08105101

Re: Gutzy Oil Spill Solution
Peaceandlove you made my day, for what we need is solutions to this blunder otherwise we are in for some very rough times ahead, there are no winners in this scenario. It surprise me that there's many folks out there who will stand up to make the difference. I sincerely hope we can have many more people like Kevin step up to the plate. The words from the movie the field of dreams are very appropriate here, "if you build it they will come" even if it took ten years.
many many blessings to you and yours...
