NEWSFLASH: BP Sucks, Doesn’t Care about Louisiana

From Nola.com:

BP has reneged on promises made in November to negotiate early payments to Louisiana to help rebuild oyster beds, repair damaged wetlands and build a fish hatchery to allow the state to respond immediately to the collapse of commercial fisheries in the wake of the BP Gulf oil spill, state officials said Monday. […]

Barham said the state also is facing another major disagreement with BP over the acceptability of the cleanup of the Elmer’s Island beach in southernmost Lafourche Parish.

“BP a couple of weeks ago said they’re now looking to natural processes to finish the degradation of oil,” he said. “But at Elmer’s Island refuge, there are new tar balls coming ashore. Apparently, a mat of oil is in the subtidal zone just offshore and now it’s coagulating again and creating a fresh supply of oil.”
