Scientists Say Obama’s BP Spill Efforts “Surprisingly Uncoordinated”

At this point, as the era of Hopey Changey with unicorn poots comes to an end, reading this kind of information is about as shocking as death wishes by Internet liberals: we’re pretty much inured, acclimated, if you will, about the whole thing

As an unprecedented amount of oil fouls the Gulf of Mexico, research scientists and ocean experts say the Obama administration’s efforts to discover the magnitude of the damage are surprisingly uncoordinated.

The hell you say! Obama being in over his head? Get out of here!

A focused inquiry found that there’s no strategy to find out what is going on, what the potential issues will be, no one is in charge of merging what data there is, little is known about the plumes and where they are, and whether BP is spinning what data there is. But, hey, Obama said it’s like 9/11, so, he’ll get on it. Once he finishes 18.

That so much about the spill remains unknown is “kind of mind-boggling,” said Frank Muller-Karger, a professor of biological oceanography at the University of South Florida. He said that one of the biggest problems he sees is the lack of a “war-room-type scenario” to coordinate all the research.

“There’s no single entity that’s coordinating all the results and data from the research that’s going on, whether it’s within a (federal) agency or agency-funded or BP-funded. I can’t say and I’m not sure anybody can say” what her fellow scientists are working on. “We don’t know if it’s adequately covered right now.”

Don’t worry, Barry will get on it right away, after that cool party and concert at the White House.

    Obama told America that if we can win WWII and put a man on the moon, we can plug this leak and solve our dependency on fossil fuels.

    But there’s a missing piece: the soldiers in WWII had the Pentagon and Neil Armstrong had NASA. What’s the man on the street supposed to do to solve the fossil fuel problem? Is it time for an organized, funded effort?

    The following link is to a satirical video, but it underscores this issue in real terms.

    so you want BIG GOVERNMENT to step in, what next? more regulation for our beloved oil companies ? Better go back to listening to Rush: “this s a natural problem and the ocean will self clean” and what ever happened to the DRILL BABY DRILL chants ?

    No, we want Big Government to get out of the way. There is no doubt that the government had a hand in causing this accident. The ratio of blame is for a later time.

    There is no doubt, however, that the Federal government has hampered and stalled all efforts on the cleanup of the spill. Local governments would have been far more effective but what we have seen is the incompetency of the Feds.

    and what ever happened to the DRILL BABY DRILL chants ?

    There are still here. It is obvious that you don’t listen.

    but here is some REALLY BIG NEWS that giant A Whale skimmer it sucked up 1000 barrels in its first day.

    Come on now Teach walk the walk and head on down and sponge some oil up.

    You mean you haven’t gone down there yourself?

    Yet you want to tell others what they should do? You sit in that truck and pollute the world and want to tell others that they shouldn’t use oil?

    Typical.
