    Default James Fox Releases Gulf Spill Documentary - Pretty Slick.


    Filmmaker James Fox grows frustrated by the lack of plain talk and BP's inability to plug a gushing well after its Deep Water Horizon rig exploded and sank in the Gulf of Mexico. During the summer of 2010, Fox moves among locals across four Gulf states documenting the largest man-made environmental disaster in U.S. history. He flies over ground zero with Marine Biologist Dr. Carl Safina who warns him that BP is sinking the oil with the chemical dispersant Corexit, sweeping it under the rug. He investigates this further and conducts his own independent water tests to determine toxicity levels. The results show that public safety takes a backseat to a tourist-based economy and the symbiosis between big oil and government becomes clear."

    Well done James.

    The trailer was enough to make me extremely angry-sad inside.
    I've been watching stuff like this ever since i came here, and have always been negatively amazed at how conceited, arrogant, ignorant and plainly stupid humans are.
    Maybe i was wrong. Maybe, these aren't humans at all.
    Or, maybe i'm none.

    Things like that always made/make me feel that i do not belong here - this hasn't changed a bit over the decades i've spent here.
    I'm completely fed up with all that.

    I do hope that no Avalonian would ever even be able to formulate such a sick idea as to simply hide the oil from sight, for the sake of so-called "cost effectiveness" - i feel insulted and laughed at... the whole thing makes me wanna "hide" the responsible in their dispersant.
