Is BP burning sea turtles alive?

VENICE, La. - A boat captain working to rescue sea turtles in the Gulf of Mexico says he has seen BP ships burning sea turtles and other wildlife alive.

Captain Mike Ellis said in an interview posted on You Tube that the boats are conducting controlled burns to get rid of the oil.

"They drag a boom between two shrimp boats and whatever gets caught between the two boats, they circle it up and catch it on fire. Once the turtles are in there, they can’t get out," Ellis said.

Ellis said he had to cut short his three-week trip rescuing the turtles because BP quit allowing him access to rescue turtles before the burns.

"They're pretty much keeping us from doing what we need to do out there," Ellis said.

Other reports corroborate Captain Ellis' claims. A report in the Los Angeles Times describes "burn fields" of 500 square miles in which 16 controlled burns will take place in one day.

"When the weather is calm and the sea is placid, ships trailing fireproof booms corral the black oil, the coated seaweed and whatever may be caught in it, and torch it into hundred-foot flames, sending plumes of smoke skyward in ebony mushrooms," the article says.

Ellis said most of the turtles he has seen are Kemps Ridley turtles, a critically endangered species. Harming or killing one would bring stiff civil and criminal penalties and fines of up to $50,000 against BP.

---------------------

A reporter at the CS Monitor has spoken to a marine biologist at Texas A & M. That person has confirmed that this is happening.

BP phone numbers for contact:

Environmental hotline and community information:  866-448-5816

Wildlife distress hotline:  866-557-1401


I have called both numbers & flat told them off! I told them I was spreading this far & wide -- and I have.

What distresses me mostly is the fact of the report that the Danish offer of "skimming equipment" was rejected just days
after this tragedy.What manner of men/women would reject  such an offer ? and why !?!?

"Never let a crisis go to waste." - Rahm Emanuel. And, that is what they are doing. This is a purposeful destruction for political gain. I an convinced. Push, shove & promote their clean energy CRAP & TAX BS. They are out there saying "SEE! SEE! This is what you get when you drill!

Well, EVERY ONE of you left-wing morons need to PARK YOUR CARS, throw out ALL PLASTIC,
throw out all small, gas powered tools, throw away anything that has greased bearings -- THAT INCLUDES YOUR BICYCLES, TOO!

>>>DO IT NOW!<<<

Start walking nit-wit! -- oh, and barefooted too -- if you wear those sandals made from tire tread!
