Digression on the story.
Of British Petroleum and the British government.
All -- some deal over this Lockerbie bomber shuttle ride a victory could it just all deal with Libya there.
Where you're on now what do you know about them well.
The deal was in 2007.
They were gonna release -- Mizrahi from Scotland.
Part of the deal was they put him in the deal in order for BP to get a 900 million dollar oil deal from Moammar Qaddafi -- we're not not up for sure.
I think we know for sure it was announced -- time that was announced at the time cut and I was just telling Charles off the air.
The BP things much worse.
Much worse than I think any of us have realized I had a guy come see me from a South Korea.
Who is some sort of scientific slash businessman who tell who told me that when it's all said and done.
The the environmental.
And economic damage from the gulf BP disaster.
Will be the equivalent of fourteen.
That the damage -- of the land the wet -- -- peaches thought seed bed that's gonna last decades.
The damage from that dispersants.
That have been used will be the equivalent of Agent Orange.
And the chemical reaction to the workers at 9/11 -- all gotten terribly sick and we've had to create a special medical fun for them.
And then all the all the way at the time for exercise.
Oh absolutely the EPA Christie Whitman's running around with these machines saying it's all safe.
The problem I really don't think anybody tells you about how safest office.
I'm a -- -- earned their tour after it happened -- -- about my wider first.
Cognizant of all these kinds of things.
It was just so insistent that I wore a master one of -- warm warm house and then you know.
And those guys have done their work an 81012 hours today breathing that stuff.
And and then comes the issue a trust -- and Charles about about the amount of money this thing's gonna ultimately cost I had I had realized that the EPA under the fresh water act.
Has the power.
To fly and be paid.
Dollars per barrel per day leaked into the gulf.
So I did a little calculation last night if it's 50000 barrels a day.
At six point 45.
Billion dollars a month but let's say it's a 100000 -- -- thirteen billion a month.
Four months of this -- fifty billion.
It's not counting the twenty billion that the president negotiated with that BP to set aside for economic damage.
Mean we're talking seventy.
Round of off book about a hundred billion dollars to a company that has 300 billion dollars on the balance sheet.
This things devastating for everybody involved.
And and it and it's not going away any time soon.
I guess you weren't watching the US treasury -- announcement I was preparing for your show -- A hundred suggest -- comes out -- about crime.
-- room and by the -- on the -- -- -- the last time I was on your show like I said that if I thought the president should relocate to a destroyer.
In the gulf set up -- down their run this thing and cut through the bureaucracy tell the Army Corps of Engineers today -- these berms over here really be hands on manager.
And Christie hasn't done that in fact he hasn't been back to the gulf for two and a half weeks and I think that.
White House has made a political calculation why -- have to get what what you have to go to our at all.
-- -- -- -- The console people -- sort of thing -- No more than console will always matters we have five states each trying to get the thing cleaned up on their shores before the oil it's -- land.
And you hear nothing from.
I accept complaints from those governors about the federal bureaucracy being slow.
BP not having enough people on the ground because it's BP's responsibility claim the thing up -- they're not all doing.
It's -- -- -- point -- an upside to said the president should go to an -- like a young Teddy Roosevelt -- and take charge of this thing.
And bring the navy down bring marine reserves bring everybody -- -- even do you go players' time and bring -- -- down on our planet and it's not necessary to discourage.
My service to this country I'm not disparage jungles of Vietnam while I want them that you might be recalled to go -- that are shovel some oil but.
We'll -- inside -- journal of the moment that or out of time thankfully so you can't remain to me anymore.
Donald -- a sizable fund real thank you.
