As millions eagerly tuned in to the live cam at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico to watch BP’s latest efforts to stop the flow of oil into the gulf, we saw mud roiling from four holes in the riser. We prayed and hoped and watched that this scourge of oil that BP has loosed on the world would be stopped before even WORSE damage was done.
The effort was called a ‘top kill’, an attempt to pipe mud into the top of the Blowout Preventer and then cap it with cement.
Then in a CNN press conference, BP executives admit they haven’t pumped a thing all day. I’ll post the link, but guess what? Half an hour after the story was published online, the paragraph about ‘not pumping all day’ was deleted. Good thing I got a screen shot. Screen shot below along with original reporting verbiage:
Venice, Louisiana (CNN) — BP’s much-anticipated effort to cap its undersea gusher in the Gulf of Mexico was temporarily suspended at midnight and was expected to resume Thursday evening, a BP executive said. The “top kill” procedure continued until “just before midnight, when we stopped pumping operations,” Doug Suttles, the company’s chief operating officer, told reporters. BP has been evaluating the results of the first round of pumping over the past 16 hours. “We have not yet pumped today,” Suttles said. The light-brown material that’s been seen flowing out of the well throughout Thursday was the previously pumped fluid mixed with oil.
The link no longer says the above, the incrminating admission has been scrubbed. Duplicitous CNN, shame on you!
And BP liars! For this was still on the BP website all day up until I grabbed the screen shot at 6:30 PM:
“Update on Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill – 27 May “Top kill” operations continued over the night and are ongoing. There are no significant events to report at this time. BP will provide updates on progress as appropriate.
And they let the world think they were doing something they weren’t…
“But those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction.” (1 Timothy 6:9)
Misuse of Riches
“Come now, you rich, weep and howl for your miseries which are coming upon you. Your riches have rotted and your garments have become moth-eaten. Your gold and your silver have rusted; and their rust will be a witness against you and will consume your flesh like fire. It is in the last days that you have stored up your treasure! Behold, the pay of the laborers who mowed your fields, and which has been withheld by you, cries out against you; and the outcry of those who did the harvesting has reached the ears of the Lord of Sabaoth. You have lived luxuriously on the earth and led a life of wanton pleasure; you have fattened your hearts in a day of slaughter. You have condemned and put to death the righteous man; he does not resist you.” (James 5:1-6)
