Ken Feinberg, of course assured all in his methodology that everything would be fine in the Gulf by 2012…but certain species, even beyond humans might beg to differ…
Just ask the dolphins:
Oiled dead dolphins washing ashore, 8 months after spill
Or ask the sea turtles:
Sea Turtle Deaths Mount in the Gulf
Hell, even ask the dwarf sea horses if ya like:
Dwarf seahorses threatened by BP oil spill, deserve protection, environmental group says
The point simply being, for a body of water that Feinberg has expressed is quickly on the road to recovery, there sure is a lot of death going on, and it would seem to imply that his estimations, those little facts and figures he is trying to base all claims upon, they simply aren’t holding up.
Yet he keeps stalling interim claim payments…the only claims that can take into account ongoing damage in the Gulf, while speeding along quick payments, and now the final payments, both of which leave claimants – people and families – out of luck should things not improve by his timetable.
Course, with all those signed waivers, British Petroleum and its employees need not fear being placed on any endangered species list anytime soon and along with Feinberg, appear to be the only species so secure.
Funny how that all worked out…
Have a nice day.
