Default BP's gulf oil spill response plan lists the walrus as a local species. Louisiana Gov.



Quote:
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is angry and frustrated at BP's 2009 response plan for a Gulf of Mexico oil spill, which lists walruses, sea otters, sea lions, and seals as 'sensitive biological resources' and names a man who died in 2005 as a national wildlife expert.
O-M-G!
It would be hilarious if it weren't so tragic.

...names and phone numbers of several Texas A&M University marine life specialists are wrong. So are the numbers for marine mammal stranding network offices in Louisiana and Florida, which are no longer in service.

BP PLC's 582-page regional spill plan for the Gulf, and its 52-page, site-specific plan for the Deepwater Horizon rig are riddled with omissions and glaring errors, according to an Associated Press analysis that details how BP officials have pretty much been making it up as they go along. The lengthy plans approved by the federal government last year before BP drilled its ill-fated well vastly understate the dangers posed by an uncontrolled leak and vastly overstate the company's preparedness to deal with one.
me thinks our inspectors were complicit...

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, reacting to the AP story, said Wednesday he was angry and frustrated.

"Look, it's obvious to everybody in south Louisiana that they didn't have a plan, they didn't have an adequate plan to deal with this spill," Jindal said. "They didn't anticipate the BOP (blowout preventer) failure. They didn't anticipate this much oil hitting our coast. From the very first days, they kept telling us, 'Don't worry, the oil's not going to make it to your coast.'"
me all'tho thinkth he hath revifed hith campaign.
