BP’s true perspective and other comments….

According to the article, entitled: BP CEO: Gulf Of Mexico Is A ‘Very Big Ocean’, Amount Of Oil From Leak Is ‘Tiny’ by Frances Martel, at the following link, dated May 14, 2010:
BP’s CEO, Tony Hayward insisted that the leaked oil and the estimated 400,000 gallons of dispersant that BP has pumped into the sea to try to tackle the slick should be put in context. “The Gulf of Mexico is a very big ocean. The amount of volume of oil and dispersant we are putting into it is tiny in relation to the total water volume.”

According to the article, entitled: Sham Workers? BP Bussed In Clean Up Crews For President Obama’s Gulf Visit by Colby Hall, dated May 28, 2010, at the following link:
400 extra cleanup workers were bussed to Grand Isle during President Obama’s visit and after Obama left, so did the work crews.

Transcript of discussion on NPR entitled: Oil Spill Cleanup Technology stuck in 20th Century. Thirty-one years ago, the Ixtoc I well blew out in the Gulf of Mexico after its blowout preventer failed. Cleanup crews responded with oil booms, skimmers and detergents. Ira Flatow and guests discuss why, three decades later, oil cleanup crews still rely on the same technology. They only mention Kevin’s machines briefly. At the following link:

Excerpt from article entitled: Twitter’s fake BP spokesman too slick for the oil company by Mark Milian: As if the all-too-real BP oil spill weren't enough of a circus, a satirical Twitter account called @BPGlobalPR adds some dark humor to a sludgy situation. The fake BP Twitter page was created a week ago….the project has netted more than $3,000 for the nonprofit Gulf Restoration Network through the sale of $25 "BP cares" T-shirts (in green and black, a nice mesh of the colors of money and oil).

Excerpt from blog entitled: Hey Kevin Costner, “If You Build It, They Will Clean It” by Dimitry Greentree: You may remember him as Ray Kinsella, the man who built it so they would come in “Field of Dreams”. Or, you might remember him as Crash Davis, the washed up minor leaguer from “Bull Durham”. Shoot, more fitting, you might even be one of the few cult fans of his mutant character, Mariner, from the post-apocalyptic “Waterworld”. Whichever Hollywood character you associate Mr. Kevin Costner with, you can now add real life environmental savior to the list.

Excerpt from the article entitled: ‘More BS from BP’ by Ed Griffin-Nolan: “…..he (Kevin Costner) set out to build the machine, which he calls Ocean Therapy. He wanted it to be ready for the next big spill. And, as it turns out, James Earl Jones was right. He built it, the oil did come. It is a welcome development in a crisis like this when on good days they burn lots of crude oil off the surface of the sea, sending thick black smoke up into the open air, which is enough to make you want to pull your hair out” at the following link:

Excerpt from the article by Elisabeth Rosenthal: “In a tense standoff, BP continued to spray a product called Corexit in the Gulf of Mexico on Monday to break up a vast oil spill despite a demand by federal regulators that it switch to something less toxic. The Environmental Protection Agency had set a Sunday night deadline for BP to stop using two dispersants from the Corexit line of products. The oil company has defended its use of Corexit and taken issue with the methods the agency used to estimate its toxicity” at the following link:

Excerpt from the article by Mike Di Paola: “So far BP has focused on three offshore cleanup strategies: skimming the oil, burning it on site, or dowsing it with hundreds of thousands of gallons of chemical dispersants to hasten its breakdown” at the following link:

Excerpt from the article by Cheryl Hall: “Hurricane Katrina had Gen. Russell Honore. He came, took names and kicked butt. I pray for another Gen. Honore. God knows we need him now."

Excerpt from article by John Harlow, dated May 24, 2010: Kevin said, “Oil companies have not been fully prepared for such ecological disasters: oil-separating machines, which do not use harmful chemicals to break up the oil, should be mandatory on all rigs.” In 1993 he channeled some of his profits from the film "The Bodyguard," with Whitney Houston, into a new company dedicated to more advanced ways of dealing with spills than booms, chemicals and casting bales of straw on the surface of the water.

See the article by Tom Raum at the following link:

Excerpt from article by John Harlow, dated May 23, 2010: This weekend six machines are being assembled on barges moored off Louisiana. They could cast off as soon as dawn tomorrow…..Costner has also teamed up with John Houghtaling, a New Orleans trial lawyer and chief executive of OTS, to finance a documentary about the disaster to keep BP “honest” in the clean-up operation. “Kevin warned oil companies seven years ago they needed technology like ours, but they said another Exxon Valdez scale disaster could not happen again. This devastation is potentially far worse, and Kevin wants to make sure the oil companies do not slacken off their efforts after the media leaves. This documentary will hold oil companies such as BP to account, and hopefully aid those who are now pressing for more safeguards built onto rigs and tankers.” At the following link:

Excerpt from blog by davide, dated May 22, 2010: Tony Hayward, the beleaguered chief executive of BP, has claimed its oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is “relatively tiny” compared with the “very big ocean”……It seems that Kevin Costner learned something important when he risked his fortune to make the movie Water World. He realized we humans were not ready to respond to the really big oil spill disasters, then. Costner and Ocean Therapy Solutions is ready now!…….True the Costner system hasn’t been proven on a scale this large, let us just hope it works…..What is so amazing when asked about making money off their inventions and response efforts, Costner said we haven’t talked money yet. Too bad we can’t get some guys like Costner and Cameron into the Congress, guys that use their wealth and power to do what needs to be done. At the following link:

Excerpt from article by Jim Hagerty, dated May 20, 2010: The six Ocean Therapy Solutions machines are being hauled by barge from California. Their voyage began Wednesday, May 19. Comment posted by John Ballard: Good for him. I am an engineer and this concept should work well. He isn't just another celebrity that knows everything and needs to teach us the err of our ways. Good luck Kevin. At the following link:

Excerpt from the article by Saul Relative, dated May 20, 2010: At present, Ocean Therapy Solutions are a bit behind, the oil spill having grown to over 46,000 square miles of polluted water since the accident last month in the Gulf of Mexico at BP's Deepwater Horizon drill ship. Eleven rig workers were killed, the drill ship sank, and the ruptured well began spilling thousands of gallons of crude into the Gulf of Mexico. Estimates range from 5,000 gallons to 70,000 gallons escaping into the Gulf waters per day. The potential of environmental damage is estimated to be catastrophically high. "Years before I got involved," Kevin Costner told reporters, "oil spills came and I would wonder why we couldn't clean this up." At the following link:

Excerpt from article by Mark Guarino, dated May 20, 2010: Costner said his decision to fund the technology was a result of needing to use the wealth he was “lucky” to accumulate instead of “piling it” for no real purpose. “We all make decisions about what we want to be a part of. I’m just one person focusing on a specific problem and throwing a little resources to a lot of talent and manpower … to come up with what is a [solution],” At the following link:

Excerpt from article by Joe Leydon, dated May 20, 2010: I've always been a Costner fan. (Not only do I think his performance in Mr. Brooks was criminally underrated — I've even had nice things to say, and write, about The Postman.) And if he can save my home state of Louisiana (among other places) from this disaster, I will gladly buy him dinner at the restaurant of his choosing. No kidding. At the following link:

Excerpt from the blog by Elizabeth Snead, dated May 20, 2010: According to the New York Times, BP officials is gonna give it a try and Ocean Therapy Solutions hopes to have the machines deployed and in action this week. OK, why does it take an actor to come up with this? What the heck is BP doing for emergency plans? God forbid they should spend some of their huge oil profits on saving the environment. And by the way, thanks, Kevin. We forgive you for "Waterworld." At the following link:

Excerpt from article by Starcasm, dated May 20, 2010: In a story coming way out of left field (of dreams) Kevin Costner might have the answer to how to help with the environmental nightmare BP oil spill that is wreaking havoc on the Gulf Coast region. No this doesn’t involve Costner evolving into a part human-part gill having fish-man like in Waterworld but real science. I know this is incredible! Costner is the star in so many movies where he is responsible for saving the day (The Postman, Waterworld, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, The Bodyguard) that maybe this shouldn’t seem so shocking.

Excerpt from article by Chris Yogerst: “While British Petroleum and our own federal government appear to have been completely unprepared for the current oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, it appears that Costner is the only one who learned something from the 1989 Exxon Valdez accident. Sure, he could be appearing in commercials advocating clean energy like Robert Redford, instead he has been putting his own money into research that will help clean up oil spills” at the following link:

Excerpt from the article by Abby Wisse Schachter: “And one other important note, this is private enterprise at work. Costner is an avid fisherman and hunter and brought his considerable resources to bear on a problem he cares to solve. This wasn’t Washington, a bureaucrat or some government program. It’s an individual who is trying to do something constructive and may in fact have solved a serious ecological disaster. Let’s hope Costner’s machines deliver as advertised” at the following link:

Why would it take so long for BP to test the Oil Separator???

I can’t believe my eyes! From the article by Louis Sahagun, LA Times, BP spokesman Mark Proegler is quoted as saying, “BP has agreed to test Mr. Costner's machines. Of course, they need to meet regulations with respect to discharge.” WHAT? BP is spewing gallons and gallons of oil in to our gulf every minute and have been for the last month and they are going to be sticklers about Kevin’s oil separator that can clean the oil out of the water to 97% clean? Unbelievable!! Don’t they see how asinine they are being? Guess not! What’s the delay? See the article at the following link:,0,6581272,full.story

Excerpt from the article by Marci Stone: “Doug Suttles, BP’s chief operating officer said that six machines had been approved for testing. "All boast centrifuge processing technology — giant vacuum-like machines that suck oil from water, separate the oil, store it in a tanker and send the water, 99.9 percent purified, back into the gulf." Article at the following link:

Excerpt from the article by Laila Morcos: “Using a small prototype of the machine, Costner demonstrated how it works for a group of stressed parish officials today.

Excerpt from the article by Ray Sanchez: “Costner and representatives of Ocean Therapy Solutions, the firm that developed the machine, demonstrated the centrifugal device for BP officials in New Orleans last week.

Excerpt from the article by David Chen: “Now, with the approval of the Army Corps of Engineers, British Petroleum has given the go-ahead for Costner to test six of his devices to help clean up the massive oil spill in the Gulf.” See the article at the following link:

Excerpt from the article by Newscore: “KEVIN Costner has been given the go ahead to fulfill another dream - using his own machine to help clean up the massive BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. BP has approved a test of Costners Ocean Therapy device to help the company clean up the Gulf after its Deepwater Horizon drill rig exploded and began spewing oil into the water, officials said.” Article at the following link;

Excerpt from article by John Feeney: “The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico continues to worsen. Today, Florida was reporting that large tar balls were washing up on its beaches. Bp has designed a siphon to help with the oil spill, but it is only cleaning up about 40% of what is being leaked out everyday. Something has to change. Enter Kevin Costner.” Article at the following link:

Excerpt from article by Mark R: “If he really has been working on this device for 15 years, then he must have just started after he had finished the movie Waterworld. Most people bring that movie up every time they mention a bomb of a film, but I’m guessing that the environmental message of the film was enough to inspire Costner to do something. How many films have done that? Well, I hope that this device is as incredible as it claims.” Article at the following link:

BP OK’s Kevin’s oil separator to start clean up…..CORRECTION!

I read the article wrong - I thought they ok'd the equipment to start cleanup because I understood that there had already been a test on the water and it worked and so they were just waiting for BP to okay the clean up. If BP is just now doing a test, after 6 days, then I have to ask, "What's taking BP so long to make the right decision and get these machines out there to clean up the mess???" The oil has made land! Someone needs to TELL them to just DO IT!!

According to the article by Bradley Handwerger, BP approved Costner’s Ocean Therapy device to help the company attempt to clean up the Gulf of Mexico, this afternoon. See the article at the following link:

The “oily” ball is now in BP’s court…..

On May 16th, normanrobinson1 tweeted: “Kevin Costner's oil extraction machine was tested in the gulf; It works. BP has a proposal in it's hands. See my report @ 10pm on WDSU”

There’s news that Stephen Baldwin is directing a documentary entitled, “The Will To Drill.” According to Pandora, at the following link, Stephen was able to capture the successful test of Kevin’s technology that has the ability to separate oil from water:

From the article by Chris Kirkham, at the following link:
Kevin said, "I'll put as many of these on the water to actually start cleaning up the water and taking out the oil, as opposed to surrounding it or watching it sink or hoping that it disappears, or blaming the next hurricane on dispersing it. We've been working in very crude ways. We see these images and we're going to see them tomorrow and we're going to see them the next day, and it feels feeble. It feels ineffectual."

If this turns out to be true I swear not to tell another Costner-related mullet joke for as long as I live. Kevin, Kevin, Kevin. How could I ever have doubted you? And comments:
by M Styborski: “…I’ll still make Costner jokes whenever the occasion calls, but never on Kevin Costner Day which I’m sure will be forthcoming.”
By Louis Masitros: “I wasn’t too hopped up about the Costner thing till Norm Robinson tweeted that they tested it IN THE GULF and it worked. Still awaiting details, but Norm usually shoots pretty straight. We’ll see.”
By Lord David: “If Dances With Oil works, I’ll even Praise the Mullet.”
