Fewer oil skimmers in Gulf coast now than there were 2 weeks ago-Sen. Scott Brown

6/18: US Senator Scott Brown called into WRKO radio's Howie Carr show in the 5pm hour. Mr. Carr among other topics brought up the oil gusher response about which Senator Brown said,
  • "There are fewer (oil) skimmers and rehabilitation" vehicles "in the Gulf now than there were 2 weeks ago."
Detailed how it is next to impossible to get the area cleaned up and protected due to federal government intervention. Brown is on the Homeland Security committee and said he's working on a bill to enable cleanup response to take place immediately in future. He made the statement about the oil skimmers at about 5:37pm. (I listen to Carr's show on the internet). UPDATE 2, 6/26: "Because the U.S. didn't want Dutch ships working the Gulf, the U.S. airlifted the Dutch equipment to the Gulf and then retrofitted it to U.S. vessels. And rather than have experienced Dutch crews immediately operate the oil-skimming equipment,
  • U.S. postponed the clean-up operation to allow U.S. crews to be trained."...
