cheney's chernobyl

This really great post over at CROOKS AND LIARS outlines the path to the disaster we see unfolding in the Gulf of Mexico. When it happened and halliburton was involved, I wondered, oh my god!!! they were probably hydralic fracturing down there. This piece outlines how they got us to where we are now. Their reckless disregard for all of our water and specifically safe drinking water will be on diplay for their children and grandchildren to experience for as far as the eye can see.

We must end barbaric extraction now!

On October 22, 2007 Randall B. Luthi, Wyoming attorney, Cheney cohort and new director of MMS signed a "Finding of No New Significant Impact" (PDF) with regard to Lease Sale 206, also known as the Deepwater Horizon. This finding was the last barrier for BP to cross before plunging equipment 5000 feet under the ocean's surface, using Halliburton fracture techniques to open the well, and beginning the flow of oil which ends as an environmental and economic disaster to Gulf inhabitants. No significant impact, indeed.
