Hope and Change, Oil Catastrophe Style. How’s it workin’ out for ya now?
Update from Breitbart, the original poster:
UPDATE: We have learned that this footage is not from the Gulf oil spill. A commenter points out: “This is footage from the film Petropolis: Aerial Perspectives on the Alberta Tar Sands showing the toxic lakes called ‘tailings ponds’ that are created in the process of extracting the crude oil bitumen from the sand and clay buried underground. The film has been released on DVD in Canada and is coming to audiences in the USA and UK soon.”
But, this does beg the question: Why DON’T we have aerial footage showing the extent of the oil spill?
And that’s my point–there has been a news blackout that the press has allowed. Where is the footage? What the hell is happening there? Why do we not know what it looks like? As far as we know it looks worse than this. We had daily, minute-by-minute coverage of Katrina, here the press is banned and they do nothing.
We should see a press group trying to get onto the scene and be arrested if need be to show the fascists closure of the site to what is supposed to be our free press. But there’s nothing.
