the worst part is they have two plans on the table: one that's never been tested at that depth or that pressure and the other will take an estimated
three months. The oil spill is reported to have tripled in size in three days and the drilling, (if the first fails) could take months, drastically
increasing the effect of the spill. My biggest concern, above the already terrible nature of this incident, is what we will do if both options fail or
cannot be done?
Now is a great time to see what extent the big shakers and movers of the world are willing to go to fix this. The fact this isn't be reported with
the hysteria that surrounded swine-flu is a plus in some ways at least (keep people calm or whatever) but at the same time, I feel this spill warrants
the kind of reporting swine-flu received.
I wonder what I'll be telling my kids in twenty years about this? will this damage the planet but usher in a push for safe and renewable energy? or
will we still be driving the petroleum industry telling them about what the oceans used to be like?
I know this is a rather gloomy and speculative post but these are the thoughts this mess stirs up in me.
