The Obama administration's putting pressure on BP to stop that oil leak down in the Gulf Coast but while corporate executives from multi billion dollar companies.
Waste valuable time playing the blame game from American business owners are stepping up to the plate to clean up the disaster.
Let's walk on John Paul the jury -- club founder and CEO Paul Mitchell.
You all know this brand just telling us how his company John is using air to clean -- the oil -- down in the Gulf Coast I mean it's interesting story just.
First off explain how that can happen.
You -- hi Sandra Cody and Eric.
Guys we're actually doing -- kinda thought our school or public to school in Austin, Texas to collect hair.
Our Paul Mitchell school -- in Louisiana.
Are all -- our school down there have the whole building someone's home set up.
To collect their hair put it -- may booms out of that.
Put into the Gulf of Mexico to help clear that this disaster -- almost like Obama's Katrina.
But they hammered here you know picks up oil off the -- all the time.
So it's very very absorbent.
We put -- out there.
It picks up the oil we squeezed that out and we keep on doing this only problem is it keeps on coming and coming and going.
And we we need almost -- the here in the world that's been cut off.
In order to really stop and almost like gosh where they're making are -- to get it down and but -- -- organization.
-- is if -- address that I mean it that's sort of what I was gonna get to his.
You wouldn't need -- -- -- cut off of everybody on the planet to even make a dent into what's going on out there.
Isn't simply an effective means that it does help all -- Just PR talked a little bit about what the actual implicate all of -- ramifications of you guys getting involved would be.
You betcha we've been doing this for three years with the matter of trust out of San Francisco California.
Every year there's about 2005600.
Small oil spills -- -- clean up oil spills you're now for several years so we know it really really works.
No this is a real thing.
It's making a contribution a darn good -- and we feel that every company should participate we got students participating.
So -- from Canada are shipping hair down here in order to make these booms it works it actually works that if everybody pitched did.
With whatever natural technology that they had.
By gosh we at least contain that's bill can't we stop it now that's something he's got to do right hey John -- give a second you say you -- you -- -- big question Cody actually speaking to you betcha.
Sarah Palin was asked about Obama's response to the oil spill just last week listen to what she had to say.
It's legitimate for any American citizens to ask.
Why isn't the media in the mainstream media asking -- those type of questions about the contributions made that work.
A larger pot of money given to Obama than any the other candidates -- is there any kind of.
So so the question being is the response from the White House has -- been quick enough -- they you.
Cut -- -- -- -- too slow to react and take the reins from BP has 5000 more barrels bill.
Well number one with all due respect to our government.
I think only -- RP -- that knowledge from other competitive big gold cup is how to stop that.
I think our government knows how to do it.
But I do agree our government should it jumped in a lot quicker release of people I speak for we the people which are the government hopefully we the people.
At that hey this is really disaster.
BP step it up a little bit mayor were to fight you every single day this is leaking out you're really screwed up on this one.
Guys pay more attention by the way consult other big giant oil companies your competitors.
This is unnatural disaster the plight of getting killed the little fish that either getting killed the bigger ones are getting killed.
It's running the -- industry there's really a lot of stuff for all of us for many years to come pretty.
You know I feel that our government -- -- quicker but then again there's lobbying money that influences them.
Been hearing a lot closer to this although we are down there and often taxes obviously not close it.
And not to all the to hear directly from those impacted but what's the word that you're hearing down there from folks.
Are they upset about the blame game that's going on in Washington right now what's the biggest can -- that you're hearing from people out there.
Yup they have a big concern whether it's Washington that's lagging behind whether it's BP go look at this -- behind.
They know it's a disaster and it's only getting worse.
At a -- something is done by combining all resources together as quick as possible not just to harness the oil that's out there.
But to stop the continuation.
This could be just as deadly as good team it -- but penalized for me just like while Katrina wiped out a lot of things.
This is wiping out a lot of things also end.
The end result is we're not gonna know about this the end result of this for years because it's horrible so the people are concerned what the fishing industry which affects everybody.
It affects my industry everyone's industry.
Fishermen don't make money they can't put hair -- to camping drink patrolled the keel they can't -- job Paul that they can't buy toothpaste.
-- -- it affects everybody was something this method happens.
But more importantly -- -- -- environment.
And that's the real deadly month so I think our government should jump on this even more so what they can do I don't know -- they don't what they can do.
But it should not shift lights they should say let's do something together and stop this -- BP get your competitors involved in this one.
Maybe they have a better idea maybe they dealt with members from -- -- -- -- -- John Paul enjoy great businessman -- season even got.
Fishermen come into the beauty salon about oh yeah.
