This is becoming pretty serious now...

And I just read this. Dunno how credible the source is, but it's rather scary, to say the least - - a timeline of future history

Jesus frightening for the future of our children, we have all this technology and not the ability to stop disasters like this happening..:-(

reminds me of the time when the powers that be wanted to store spent radioactive materials in glass flagon thingys under the sea..yeah just the thing with all those earthquakes and volcanos..

could not they sink another well into the same seam/vein whatever on land and decrease the pressure I Red Adare still alive I wonder!

They are drilling a pressure a relief well, Jan, good idea. I've worked in the Gulf of Mexico, but am not technically expert. The questions that spring to my mind are why not have redundancy for the critical blow-out preventer and why were the feds so slow to act, eg to set-off the burn before the choppy weather, to deploy booms and a few other things?

A fuller discussion is here:

they're doing it today apparently. should make it easier to collect/pipe the oil that is spilling out.
They're also doing controlled burns of surface oil - more CO2 into the atmosphere! :)

Well, speaking as an ex-competitor, BP seem to be doing a great job in adverse conditions while being insulted up the wazoo by the disgusting Obamans. They haven't figured out how to blame Bush, so they're sticking it to BP. "Keeping their boot to BP's throat", gadzooks! These people are infantile compared to the grown-ups in the oil industry.

It's a sidelight right now, but the fact is that the rig operator is Transocean and the BOP manufacturer is Cameron, renowned American companies, but less disliked by Obamans than British BP or jewish Goldman Sachs in another context.

What has the JEWISH Goldman Sachs got to do with it? Do I hear anti semitism raising it's ugly head here?
