(Jim Bob) Moffett has been called one of “the worst environmental desperadoes of modern times” (by the Austin Chronicle) http://www.zoominfo.com/people/Moffett_J._1315557935.aspx Moffett made his fortune wildcatting Gulf of Mexico oil, assuming the half-drilled abandoned wells of the industry giants. Freeport is the world’s largest producer of gold and Henry Kissinger has sat on the Board. “As of mid-2008, McMoRan Exploration’s Blackbeard well is below 32,550 feet (9,920 m), the deepest oil exploration well ever recorded.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freeport-McMoRan Moffett moved Freeport’s headquarters from his native New Orleans to Phoenix Arizona.

Peter D. Sutherland, former non-executive Chairman of (UK subsidiary) Goldman Sachs Int’l ” in early 2010 finished a 13-year stint as chairman of BP, Europe’s largest oil company. At one point during his tenure, the company was valued on the stock market at £236 billion” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Sutherland “What do British Petroleum, Goldman Sachs, and the Inter-Alpha Group of Banks have in common? For one thing, they are tools of the British Empire, dedicated to destroying the United States and all vestiges of national sovereignty on the planet. For another, they are all criminal enterprises, which corrupt everything they touch. And third, they are all polluters on a massive scale: BP does it with oil, while Goldman Sachs and the Inter-Alpha Group do it with derivatives and other forms of casino finance. In that regard, we repeat something that we have reported before: they all come together in the form of Sir Peter Sutherland..” http://www.larouchepac.com/node/14786 British Petroleum – Amoco – ARCO http://www.corporations.org/bp-amoco/

“The International Union for Conservation of Nature — the world’s largest environmental network — has called for a global moratorium on oil and gas drilling in environmentally sensitive deepwater and polar areas.’ The technology to minimize the risks and impacts of catastrophes such as the Deepwater Horizon oil spill is obviously lacking at present,’ said IUCN Director General Julia Marton-Lefevre.” [see youtube] http://www.bradenton.com/2010/06/29/2396819/oil-spill-causes-international.html

Synthetic Biology (creating more demand?): “Prof. [Ananda M.] Chakrabarty genetically engineereda new species of Pseudomonas bacteria (“the oil-eating bacteria”) in 1971 while working for the Research & Development Center at General Electric Company in Schenectedy, New York. At the time, four known species of oil-metabolizing bacteria were known to exist, but when introduced into an oil spill, competed with each other, limiting the amount of crude oil that they degraded. The genes necessary to degrade oil were carried on plasmids, which could be transferred among species. By irradiating the transformed organism with UV light after plasmid transfer, Prof. Chakrabarty discovered a method for genetic cross-linking that fixed all four plasmid genes in place and produced a new, stable, bacteria species (now called pseudomonas putida) capable of consuming oil one or two orders of magnitude faster than the previous four strains of oil-eating microbes. The new microbe, which Chakrabarty called “multi-plasmid hydrocarbon-degrading Pseudomonas,” could digest about two-thirds of the hydrocarbons that would be found in a typical oil spill….The “oil-eating bacteria” has been used to clean up many toxic oil spills, including the one caused by the Exxon Valdez disaster.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ananda_Mohan_Chakrabarty
