Matt Simmons, the man who has been speaking out in the mainstream media about the true extent of BP's catastrophe in the Gulf, was found dead in his home on 8/8/10. It is being reported as an accidental drowning due to heart attack.
Simmons had spoken in the media since May about multiple oil leaks in the Gulf of Mexico, including the real gusher which is reported to be about 10 kilometres away from the much smaller leak on which BP and the media have been training the eyes of the public.
Simmons was highly recognized in the industry and owned a company (Simmons & Co.) that provided financial services to oil and gas firms, facilitating billions of dollars in mergers. He was well-connected to say the least - an energy advisor to George W. Bush and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
Simmons spoke out about the BP cover-up, calling it "the biggest environmental cover-up ever," as well as the attempted shifting of blame to Transocean. Simmons placed responsibility squarely on BP and said that the real cost of cleaning up the Gulf would cost well over a trillion dollars, bankrupting the company.
"Unfortunately, we now have killed the Gulf of Mexico."
