BP oil spill conspiracy theories - Boing Boing Why can't there be any conspiracies with the worst oil spill and absolute envirnomental disaster! Conspiracy 1: The Obama administration caused this and want it to be bad. Think about it. (1) It happened close to Earth Day. (2) Cap and Trade wouldn't make it through Congress even if it was all Democrats. (3) The Global Warming Theory is falling apart, with more and more skeptics jumping ship everyday. (4) Obama just pasted and executive order demanding fuel efficency standards for big rigs. (5) And a liberal dream is to get draconian and demand fuel standards for all newly made cars. Not to mention the electric car revolution is about to unfold and they (and I) want it to take off. (6) The piss poor response to the oil spill is WORSE than Katrina! (7) The opposition to off-shore drilling, drilling in AK and drilling in America was hitting all-time lows. Fighting it would be extremely hard for Obama. Here is all the motivation they needed. Now they attack BP (a British Co)! They did it to promote the far leftist environmental movement! Conspiracy #2: North Korea did it. They wanted to punish America and hit us hard! They evil bastards have no concious, so why not hit us. It will be hard to prove. With no direct human life, going to war would be tough for Obama to get approval for. However, this will be the great enviromental disaster right in our backyard, in which it will cost billions of dollars in clean, lost revenue and damage. Those commie bastard. For the record I believe in neither of these conspiracies, but why should the Obama administration escape conspiracies!
