wow, apparently these "anonymouse&quo t; posters say exon did not use government powers to establish that no fly zone and total restricted access to affected areas, public and private.. then how can they explain how exon got the power of immenant domain to build those pipelines anywhere they wanted??

Here on the gulf, we know all about oil spills. Good luck ever seeing a dime from exxon and enjoy the cancer and $5 gas to follow.

It's past time to be able to cover this up. A 1000' and 5 mi TFR is nothing, really.

A TFR at 1000ft agl wont stop anyone from getting pics or vids of the scene even with an iphone.

1 drum = 55 gallons
1 (petroleum) barrel = 42 gallons

Oil Spill Eater II the worlds most effective safe means to remove oil/spills permanently from the environment. Exxon Tested OSE II in 1990 for the Valdez spill and per two of their employees learned through testing OSE II is the most economical means to clean up spills. Exxon is cleaning up the Arkansas spill the old costly hard way making everyone mad thinking they can run over anyone, which they have. They know of a more economical means to clean up spills, and had they utilized OSE II as the rest of the world is switching to the Arkansas spill would have already been cleaned up. Exxon Stock holders cannot be happy!

Free speech,freedom of association, freedom of the press v Exxon pretty horrific example of contaminated corporate politics
