just heard that it could be 120-240 days til they can cap it off. I would imagine that the well head is completely obstructed by debris, so getting to it will be tricky. Nothing like a mile of drilling pipe laying on a wellhead. This will be bad. Really the only thing that can go down there is the little ROV's and they are not capable of moving even one section of pipe let alone many.
... they want "to increase the use of solar and wind". How that is going to work, no one knows. It just means huge increases in electric bills...like Obama, main man in the Chicago Climate Exchange scam, said they would.
I might be missing something here, but if they set fire to the spill, won't they simply have oil slicks on fire approaching the coast instead of just oil slicks?
On highways you could implement hydrolic or spring-driven gravity panels, an idea I've thougt about for years. Every car or truck that passes over it depresses a plate a few millimetres and generates a tiny amount of energy - you could run entire cities.
