Matt Simmons predicted what was really going on the the Gulf in the face of the repeated BP/US government lies, and he was always right. Even as the Potemkin well was being capped he continued to discuss a cover-up hiding the fact that there is still massive leaking into the Gulf. And now he's dead. He drowned in his tub of a heart attack. Or something. It is all a bit confused. He was old enough to have died of natural causes. And yet it is awfully convenient - hundreds of billions of dollars worth of convenient - that he is no longer around to speak the truth. BP is now pretty much off the hook. Was the capping and sealing just a big fraud? By the time we find out, it will be too late.
