    Norwegian Oil Spill Aid Not Welcomed by the US -- Even Though Being More Environmentally Friendly

    A Norwegian oil industry group said Friday dispersants it had planned to send to help clean up the disastrous Gulf of Mexico oil leak would not be used since they lack certification in the United States.

    At the beginning of May, Nofo, a Norwegian industry association for battling oil spills, announced it would send 150 cubic metres (5,297 cubic feet) of dispersants.

    The aid was to be used to help clean up the oil that has been gushing into the Gulf of Mexico since the BP-leased Deepwater Horizon platform exploded on April 20.

    "The dispersants we use have not been certified in the United States even though they are more environmentally friendly" than the ones currently being used, Sjur Knudsen of Nofo told AFP, confirming media reports.

    "The Americans are using Corexit, a powerful product," which is considered highly toxic, he said.

    Nofo was willing to send other types of aid, including boats used to gather oil from the water, he said, pointing out that whether such assistance would be accepted was up to US authorities.

    Norway is one of the world's largest oil and gas exporters.

    No big suprise here.The U.S. is doing everything possible to make sure this
    "Catastrophe" will last as long as possible and do as much damage as can
    be done in a situation like this.
    What gets me is the U.S. accepts help from actor Kevin Costner,who by the way has a device that seperates oil from seawater,but will not accept help
    from a country who's technology is light years ahead of ours in the offshore
    drilling field.

    And you really cannot send back all those poor Mexicans, now that their shores are poisoned, right. This would be so mean. And racist.

    Remembering the total rubbish that was so disgustingly halfheartedly tried to "fix" that hole, one has to wonder, who wins currently with that "accident"?

    McGyver-Costner with his pocket-device? Those who rally against the immigration law? BP? Obama?

    At any rate, I wouldnt be surprised to learn someday, that this was not an accident....

    I have to agree that this might not have been an accident. While that may sound outlandish Obama is running an outlandish administration. My theory is that even if the initial explosion was an accident, the response certainly isn't. Governor Jindal of Louisianna wanted to cut red tape and start a rapid response but was denied necessary resources.

    This will allow Obama to set back offshore drilling denying the US a valuable resource which it could have plenty of without adventuring into the Middle East. Any cry of 'drill baby drill' will be met with derision. This is silly because if proper regulations had been followed this accident would not have happened. The crew was ardently against BP's short cut but were told to shut up and follow orders by the company.

    A similar tactic was used here http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010...-case-goldman/ in timing a financial regulatory bill with a (surprise!) Goldman Sachs fraud case.
