Gulf coast resident: BP looking to ‘cut costs’, put on show for politicians

Here’s video of a single testimony given at an emergency citizens summit in Louisiana on June 19.

This is by far the most stunning coverage of the Gulf oil crisis I’ve seen yet.

Her name is Kindra Arnesen, a fisherman’s wife from Venice, Louisiana. She was the source of a riveting CNN piece on June 3 and a May 13 blog by the National Resources Defense Council.

If you missed both of those, stop whatever you are doing — right now — and give this woman 15 minutes of your time.

As if all that is not bad enough … Guess what else is brewing in the Gulf.
