Apparently the American population is regarded as expandable, literally, by BP and government officials at all levels of government. Here is an excerpt from Florida oil spill law:
Dr. Riki Ott, a toxicologist, marine biologist, and Exxon Valdez survivor:
People are already dying from this… I’m dealing with three autopsy’s right now.
I don’t think we’ll have to wait years to see the effects like we did in Alaska, people are dropping dead now.
I know two people who are down to 4.75 per cent of their lung capacity, their heart has enlarged to make up for that, and their esophagus is disintegrating, and one of them is a 16-year-old boy who went swimming in the Gulf.”
