BP is officially looking at this "spill" as a "learning experience".

[From an NPR interview with BP]


That's it, just a spill, and moving on...

It's sad when the MSM will not cover this like do Tiger Woods or Britney Spears.




There is a reason for that, same people control the media.

Everyone needs to see this 24/7 like all the other rubbish they spew.

This is my first post on here - I struggle to comprehend the long term damage being done by this leak on 2 fronts
1 - the environment -
This will affect the next 2 generations - I fear for what world my kids will be left with - if the criminals that run things just keep destroying the environment for their own finanical gain.
2 - the economy
Same thing really - the ludicrous debt already in place to force future generations into an even greater spiral of debt to the state (thats a whole other thread really)

Its a sad world we live in - I for one despair of the conflict I have between the joy I experience in daily life with my wife and kids, and the despair at knowing what happens in the real world that I have bought my kids into, the # they are likely to have to put up with in their adult lives makes me very very distressed.

The sooner people (not TPTB) wake up and realise we need such a drastic change before we end up destroying ourselves the better. Irrespective of whatever doom may or may not await us in 2012 - if we carry on the way we are we will be the cause of our own destruction - not pole shifts, meteors or CMEs - Mankind will destroy itself entirely.

Peace to all

People, one word for it:
KARMA.

You all know the petrodollars were the reason for invading Iraq, because of the oil, they have killed *Thousands* of people, and now, the US shorelines will have what the Gov. wanted So bad: oil.



Does karma also apply to all animals and marine life stuck into this nightmare?


No kidding. And does this karma also apply to all those who will lose thier livelihoods who opposed the wars?

Does karma apply to the kids who will feel the affects when their parents suffer as a result?

Karma....phffff....

This is an extreme ecological disaster to be sure. This has the potential to poison the gulf and the shore line of the gulf, essentially making it a dead zone. It will take decades, centuries or even never to get ecology repaired. And they are underplaying this. Ask yourself this, the well is down a mile underwater with the pressure being close to 3,000 psi compared to sea level pressure that you and I walk around in 15.3 psi or 1 ATM (atmosphere). It's about 196 atmosphere's down at the base of the drill and at the bottom of the ocean at that level. This reservoir of oil they tapped is the leading edge of a large one (they say tens of millions but they don't know). And this oil is pouring out of the opening at 5,000 barrels (most like 15,000 barrels) a day. It must be under tremendous pressure for it to fight against the 196 atm of water that is pushing down into the oil well. So if it's under that much pressure, there must be a vast amount. I have a link to a study and it shows that there may be 60 billion barrelsl of oil in the gulf area possibly more. Much of it interconnected via channels and such. Another link to NYtimes talke about BP and others trying to do Deepwater drilling and the potential to tapping the massive oil fields. BP had one called Thunder Horse that sunk partialy in 2005 and was over a well they believed had 1,000 million barrels in it (billion Barrels). These people know how bad it is and they are hiding it big time.

I have a question:

All of the people who are out of work as a result of this - would they have a just case to sue BP for lost wages?

They sure can and some already have lawyers pounding their doors down. The problem is just like our Govt and fighting them. The game is rigged. Most Judges are corupt. It's shown itself over and over.

This is what you get when the great thing of Capitalism gets turned into Corporatism. They run things now, they are in control of Congress, the Whitehouse, and the Juditial Branch.

They talk about a cap of 10 billion cost for oil companies. This is a joke, that is only a small portion of their "Profits" just in one Quarter. To be held accountable for something of this scale, it should be a losing deal for them.
All the way to the bottom. I get so tired of getting hosed for gas, while they have no account for nothing.

OMG, this is truly horrifying.
I´m so sad and angry at the world for all the crap that happens that never needed to. For all the potential we have to be a better world, but still fail to do it. The biggest question is, why? Why do people not want to give up greed to make the world better for everyone and not just the selves? We could all live in a paradise if everyone would be willing to make it happen.

The good, bad and ugly of this at ATS.
We have fought tremdiously over the last couple of years with the state of the world and breared a full spectrum of views stongly heald.
But, on this one, there is only one way of thinking hear on ATS.
The only way it should be in the world.

Complete agreement against what has happened. The lack of truth by BP and our Govt. The slow response by everyone involved.

A "learning experience"? Falling of a bike is a "learning experience". Creating what will most likely be the worst ecological disaster in the history of mankind is not a "learning experience".

Blame the Rothschilds and Rockerfellers. Their old evil assess want to keep the world medieval and totalitarian. They don't want to move on from oil.

To put the figures quoted in this forum into perspective, here the
equivalence as a cube :

2'500'000 gallons per day = 21.15 x 21.15 x 21.15 m (= 10 houses)

25'000 barrels per day (downplayed to 5'000 ?) =
15.85 x 15.85 x 15.85 m (= 4 houses).

Doom´s Day is still far away !

Really? It's not just the beaches; it is the ocean. And what floats on the ocean makes it's way to land. These gloomers you speak of are actually realists because they know the weather could change.

Why do you have to see a tainted beach to believe this is a disaster?

I'm sure you won't accept that, because it's not a closeup of a sandy beach with oil. It is, however, a contaminated wildlife refuge.

If you people would look around this website you would see the person calling himself "just_wondering" is nothing more than a post flamer, who loves to argue about anything and everything.

Back on topic here, you have to also figure in the fact that the hurrican season is almost here and this will certainly slow down the clean up effort. There is also a possablity the hurricanes themselfs could intesify, or just plain out make things a hell of a lot worse.
