Oil Industry Jitters Over BP Oil Disaster Movie – 2 Years Before Release

Fuel Fix -  (blah, blah, it’s all lies … )

“. . .  The movie based on the BP Deepwater Horizon oil disaster starring Mark Wahlberg is set for release Sept. 30, 2016, according to producers Summit Entertainment. Entitled “Deepwater Horizon,” the film is based largely on a New York Times article with the headline “Deepwater Horizon’s final hour” which focuses on the 48 hours before the oil rig exploded.”

“. . . A documentary on Deepwater, titled “The Great Invisible” and directed by Margaret Brown, opened in select theaters and made the film festival rounds this year.”

LA10-01 Goes Off the Chart

After Midnight Wednesday -


LA10-01 Wed. a.m.

That’s understandable because it fell to pieces at LA10-01 at dinnertime on Tuesday.

LA10-02 showed a big ding just before 3 p.m. Tuesday. You can see it even though Confus-O-Metrics switched the monitors to extreme micro-setting.

LA10-01  went nuts in 2 directions at 4:30 a.m. Wed..



At about 8:25 a.m. it went wild too (no art) … and stayed that way.

Lake FUBAR remains on high agitation mode.

Tea party Senate candidate Rob Maness has found an issue he believes will resonate with Louisiana voters: a 30-acre, oil-burping sinkhole. During a debate with Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu on Tuesday, Maness was asked about a lawsuit over coastal erosion filed against 100 oil and gas companies last spring by a local flood protection board. For too long, the retired Air Force colonel warned, oil, gas, and chemical companies had had their way with Louisiana, with little government oversight and often at great cost to residents: “The families of Bayou Corne—it’s been over 600 days since they’ve been under evacuation.”
