My dear great friends up there, and all on this list
forgive me please, for I've gone feral.

Before I leave this list and all of you I wish to
you all for what you have given me. Please, please
excuse my language but I've had more then a "plucking
nough" of thee oil industry and how they treat the
world's masses with utter disdain and poor
information, how many more times do we have to put up
with this? check out the tidal movements, time of
event, ocean flows to get my drift and that of your
oil slick. It's yours and YOU are responsible for it.

My lungs are ending my life now due to in the
beginning of their demise inhaling asbestos whilst I
worked for many years in the services area of the then
named "Lysaght's" now BHP Western Port. But at times
my body can still function quite well. I now intend to
disassociate myself with anyone on thee world's best
email list, and all of my friends and loved ones. So I
will NOT in any way have links to you at all, many of
whom I hold dear and love, and I know you are true
helpers and true friends of mine.

My actions will be my own, and my own only spurred on
only by the actions of marine shipping and oil
transport companies and the oil industry, if it's okay
for the USA to retaliate then it's the same for me.

Enough is Enough ...... I like my fish without added
possibly carcinogenic oil?

This sounds like a job for ThermoMan - come in JAG,
your penguins need your knitted jackets ...

I think the world of you two L&L, I really do. I
greatly appreciate all you do for birds. Could you
check out how many oil spills we have had in what? umm
lets be really kind to the oil companies? umm the past
five years say on planet earth. The answer is more
then scarey if you use the right databases. Oil spills
on land, and water, that is.
Oil spill threatens penguins 
Friday 14 December 2001 

About 230 penguins have been affected by an oil spill
on the south coast of Phillip Island, the Marine Board
of Victoria and Phillip Island Nature Park confirmed

Investigations are continuing into the cause of
yesterday's oil spill on four beaches on the island.
HOW MUCH LONGER DO THEY NEED? the new test takes 40
minutes to confirm who did it and therefore where it
came from.
While no wildlife has died as a result of the spill,
YET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! could take months for whatever is
in the oil for it to enter the food chain? hey
sometimes humans eat fish, occasionally with chips?
don't we.
Marine Board CEO John Lord said the full extent of the
damage done to the penguins could not yet be
YOU BLOODY WELL WHAT???????? the equal effect on
humans is to remove the skin of humans? even the
absolute best rehabber using only thee best washing up
liquid "Dawn" due to it's very very low harmful
chemical contents, CAN'T get their natural oils back
into their feathers without time on their side. Geeeez
Mister Good Lord come off your thin ice will yer.
Volunteers have taken the affected penguins to the
rehabilitation facility at the Phillip Island Nature
GOD Bless the ladies .... sad about the severe lack of
caring males that are helping out, but I thank the
cherished few that do.
More than 50 people are involved in the cleanup of the
island, including staff from the nature park, Parks
Victoria, Toll Western port, the Shire of Bass Coast
and volunteers. The operation is expected to take at
least three to four days.
*HA* Unless as I've recently been told expect another
"The cleanup operation is highly labour intensive, as
rocks and hard to reach areas on the shore need to be
cleaned by hand," said Mr Lord.
Three to four days to clean all these rocks? eh? Then
change the passage of the tankers. Especially from
extremely environmental sensitive areas to stop this
Victoria's Environmental Protection Authority is
examining samples of oil taken from the Thorny,
Summerland, Hutchinsons and Smiths Beaches and along
the rocky shoreline. The authority will also provide
advice on environmental impact.
GOD bless them at least.
The origin of the spill is still unknown.
Did you know that some ancient and old purification
workers can smell what type of oil an oil is?
sometimes that leaves very little to the imagination
as to where it came from?
"The Australian Maritime Safety Authority will assist
the investigation by providing details of ships known
to have passed through the area over the past week,"
Mr Lord said.
