Here is some interesting new information about the gulf oil spill. It seems that the uncoordinated attempts by the coast guard and others to put out the fire may have contributed or even caused the sinking of the platform, which is actually what caused most of the leak.
BP is clearly at fault, but perhaps not 100%. Our own government’s Coast Guard may have contributed; and federal budget cuts to the Coast Guard may have played a part.
Odd, the White House isn’t saying much about this…
