"The BP Oily Pelican Brief," details an around the clock, day by day description of the oil recovery efforts to the worst man-made environmental disaster in U.S. history, . . the BP Oil Spill. Captain Mark Noya details the "first responder" efforts of his crew, on board the M/V Silent Lady, in an attempt to stop the oil from reaching shore and destroying the economy of the U.S. "Gulf Coast." This "accounting" details a behind-the-scenes look at what the news reporters and media were not allowed to see or report, as Capt. Mark takes you through through
the daily efforts of "Task Force 704 - Strike Team One." It is the "true story" of what took place on the U.S. waters of the Gulf of Mexico in the five months following the fatal oil well explosion that created the largest oil spill in U.S. history. This is the story of the "first responders" and what they encountered throughout the spill response efforts and their painfully extended decontamination period afterwards. The BP Oily Pelican Brief is a "lessons-learned" primer for those who have never dealt with a major disaster, and the "stupidity" that always seems to be a part of any response effort of this magnitude. It sheds a new light on BP's efforts to make the oil "disappear" and the chemicals they used to accomplish that task. "The BP Oily Pelican Brief" is a grass roots telling of a tale that was never reported on the National News. Detailing on a daily basis, the events that took place, hour by hour, . . . taken from the ship's log and personal journal of Capt. Mark Noya, "The BP Oily Pelican Brief" is his "moral victory" of what BP has bestowed upon the U.S. Gulf Coast with the 4.9 million barrels of oil they flowed into the Gulf of Mexico. It exposes the carelessness of BP in the "life safety" issues they exposed the "first responders" and "Vessels of Opportunity" too in their ill-prepared spill response efforts. It is a compelling true story, totally factual in all aspects and written by a "first responder" himself, Captain Mark Noya. "The Oily Pelican Brief" is the detailing of the spill response & recovery efforts that were never allowed to be shown on the National News, ... yet written in a simple manner by a common man who has no literary interests or experience yet felt it paramount to unveil the side of this environmental disaster that most persons never knew existed. "The Oily Pelican Brief" is dedicated to all "Gulf Coast" residents and U.S. Citizens who have now been poisoned by the dispersants and chemicals now released into "our" environment. A "must-read" for anyone interested in the bungled efforts of BP and the U.S. Government to curtail the flow of oil into and onto the pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico and U.S. beaches.
