I am completely awed at how far BP will go to lie and cheat the American public and hurt the people of the Gulf South! This is like Nazi behavior from an Oil Company who has annihilated an ecological body of water who's lives were dependent on! How dare they use there billions to have a cover up and put tape over the mouths of America's scientist.

Thankfully, there are people who will not be gagged. BP's continues to scare the hell out of the world by these practices and Obama needs to stop in before they take him down with them.

Yes, buy up the talent and forget about the science and the state of affairs as it exists. What matters is the perception of the state of affairs; the perception of what might have been under the rosiest set of conditions that might have been.

How very much like the republican world in which reality is discounted and only the perception of reality is broadcast as truth. It's enough to make a Rupert Murdoch and a Roger Ailes positively giddy with excitement and anticipation.

It's GW all over again . Yeah that's the ticket , the gulf oil spill is a hoax perpetrated by the tree huggers to make you use less fossil fuels. Oh, and raise your taxes !

The oil companies don't have facts on their side, so they just buy scientists to cloud up what the facts are.

This article would be more useful if it listed the names of all the gulf scientists accepting $$$ from BP it would make a nice reference later when hundreds or maybe thousands of cases go into litigation.

WHAT BP DOESN'T WANT YOU TO KNOW:

A BP contractor managing the cleanup has gone public, claiming that BP is hiding the oil spill damage from the media and is preventing workers from talking about the massive corruption at the cleanup sites. He added, "They’re not worried about cleaning up that spill as it is..."

What is there to defend against.

Didn't they cause the sill.

And oil is bad when spilled.

Am I missing something?

Quantities. They will be fined per barrel so they need the scientists to "prove" they only spilled 432 barrels of oil or some such idiotic number.

Good planning! Get all the experts on your payroll so you can control the testimony when you get sued for billions in damages.

Machiavelli would be proud. Mother Nature, on the other hand, is going to smite you when she gets the chance.

And the Pope is going to smite you for claiming that nature is some sort of religion. If they can go after James Cameron they can go after you. Be afraid, be sort of afraid.

That's true. The Vatican is looking for anything to deflect people from looking at the Pope's actions or inactions about pedophile priests when he was a cardinal.

A better headline would have been:

Oh BP. May your company get everything that it deserves, and then some.

"Up" should remain capitalized because it's part of the verb form. The word "for" does need to be lowercase. Huffpo, I'll send you my bill...

Gulf scientists, 3 for a dollar. This week only. Get 'em while they're hot.

I, for one, am totally unsurprised by this.

This Reuters headline asks, "Are Americans Bullying BP?" Yes you are & it hurts our feelings!

Selling out for $250/hour --- really not much compared to Tony's tiny bonuses.

Hi everybody!

Dirty business all the way around. It just seems to me that doing "clean" business to begin with would take less energy and profit just as much as cutting corners, trying to squeeze out that last million, and just plain doing the right thing. But I guess there's a reason Wall Street and corporations have the "golden calf" as it's symbol.
