Breaking: Government Informed About Maine Oil Boom Company Back on May 21
Two weeks ago Governor Bobby Jindal (R-LA) requested more oil boom to save the Louisiana marshes.
At least 125 miles of Louisiana coastline has been ruined by the BP oil spill. Tar blobs began washing up on Florida’s white sand beaches near Pensacola last week. And, crude oil has also been reported along barrier islands in Alabama and Mississippi.
Oil boom manufacture Packgen has miles of floating oil containment boom in warehouse right now and they say they can make lots more on short notice. Packgen owner John Lapoint said his company is ramping up production to make 90,000 feet of oil boom per day.
Two days ago, Admiral Thad Allen, the man in charge of the federal effort to manage the crisis, told Jake Tapper that he had never heard of Packgen and their oil boom stockpiles.
Maybe Admiral Allen should clean off his desk.
Gregory Sullivan at Pajamas Media posted this letter today sent to Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and to NOAA Administrator Jane Lubchenco. Copies were sent to Governors Bob Riley, Charles Crist, Haley Barbour, and Bobby Jindal. The letter was signed by two U.S. senators.
Packgen first alerted the government 4 WEEKS AGO. They can produce more boom than anyone in the US and abroad.
John Lapoint, the owner of Packgen, told FOX News this week about the continuing efforts by Packgen to get the oil containment boom that is so desperately needed to the people of the Gulf Coast.
Meanwhile at least 18 American beaches may be ruined forever while miles of oil boom sits in a Maine warehouse.
