I agree........ this is getting ridiculous. They should of had devices already standing by just for such tragedies like this. Just another fine example that Big Oil runs the Government by lining their pockets with BIG MONEY :coffee:

They NEVER should've been drilling (especially that deep) if they had (and still have) NO CLUE how to avoid and stop a catastrophe like this. It's absolutely ludicrous and sadly, completely typical.

I do not think the issue is drilling or not because we all use oil even the so called tree huggers that are taking away all out land. I rather we drill hee than pay the Arabs for oil. The issue here is proper precautions , dulicate or triplicate shut off valves systems incase 1 fails the there are 2 more to close and stop a disaster. I work in IT and most servers I work with have duplicate or even more power supplies as well as network interfaces just incase 1 were to fail. It seem to me that they relied on one blow out preventor which in this case it failed. In such deep water well they should impose rules that require multiple shut of valves and should be tested regularly.

I have to pay a plumber to come by my house and test the Back Flow Preventor that I must have because I have a pool every year (City requirement). Why not a yearly test of the Blow Out Preventor on a yearly or bi-yearly cycle.

Well...... SURPRISE, SURPRISE :lol: The "Top Kill" method failed. Now they are taking several more days trying to figure out their next "FIX". OMG :welcome: ........ It should have been MANDATED that they have several PROVEN methods in standby mode just for this such catastrophe. Not sitting back now sipping coffee at a round table meeting saying, "Well what should we try next"? Un-Frickn' belevable :cheers:

Hollander said scientists had yet to determine whether the dissolved hydrocarbons, found in oxygen-depleted waters, were the result of chemical dispersants used deep below the Gulf surface to break down oil from the leaking well.

They just cut through the pipe a few minutes ago and they are using the ROV to remove the saw. We'll see if they screw this one up too.

Someone just told me that this thing is as big as the State of Fl.

I can not believe this has gone now almost a month. If they need to bring engineers from out of the country that might help or find someone, just can't understand why the delay. If they don't plug this up it will run the East Coast shores due the Gulf currents.

According to BP the permanent solution is the relief wells that they are currently digging but that will be completed by end of Aug

The longer this issue is going on and being talked about the more frustrated and angry over the issue I an getting with it.

Why didn't the safeties kick in? In short and oversimplified, the mobile drilling platform, (basically a huge boat with propellers on each side,) that BP leased did not match the manual issued to them with it. There were several companies working on the rig, each does a specific tasks. Some teams make some minor mistakes. The US government officials the US requires oil companies pay to inspect and certify the equipment and the work didn't catch the issues. When "something" happened the mistakes all cascaded resulting in the total failure we have today. Many experts believe the "something" was some sort of "explosive methane ice" on the ocean floor that humans know next to nothing about, as we have never really had access to it before.

Here what is upsetting me though... Exxon had a drunkard captain, an overworked crew, and faulty sonar system the company refused to fix as it was "just too expensive to fix and operate." The company has fined one year profits and been fighting that fine ever since. That fine has gone 5 billion, to 4 billion, to 2.5 billion, then to 500 million, and now they are talking about 25 million. In response the American public boycott Exxon for a few days. BP has made no direct negligent act. They have been very public about whats going on. They are footing nearly the entire cost of this incident without being fined, ordered, or boycotted. Why are we not running out to recognize how responsible BP is handing this problem and organizing carrotmobs?

I don't agree with everything they are saying, but if you still BP is bad here, here is an interesting read in newsweek; http://www.newsweek....boycott-bp.html Still think they are bad? Then either your a hypocrite, or you need to stop driving anything that uses gas or oil, stop using anything that has plastics, and cancel your FPL service.

I say go anyway. Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi need all the tourist dollars they can get right now and so do those families who own local businesses there on the coast who are trying to put food on their tables. Wait and see what happens. You never know...
