Oil Spills as an Opportunity...
By Donald Lee Struthers


May 28, 2010

What an opportunity. With the April 2010 oil spill situation in the Gulf of Mexico comes several opportunities.

1. How many BP departments and BP sub-contractors have inventoried their stocks of Hazardous Waste and have and/or are waiting for their disposal within or in the path of the oil spill?

2. How many other Companies, or Countries will do the same?

3. With entry into the Spill Zone and surrounding areas restricted by BP, who can independently test the various parameters of air, water, and life?

Do you see a bigger picture of what's happening?

Can this event eventually spread to the Gulf of Alaska? If not, then why?

Let me know...
