ONE MONTH...unbelievable. If they weren't prepared for a disaster like this to happen then it should have never been allowed.

I do not understand this at all back in the day that piece of pipe that's protruding from the sea bed would have had a plate welded to the outside diameter and another pipe of a larger diameter with a valve then welded to that plate, once the weld was completed the valve would be closed.
Why? Because men with these skills would be allowed to do it.
Why it's NOT being done?
Is it because that wouldn't work at a depth of 5,000 feet?

I think he is doing a social experiment myself. He has continually given people enough reason people to stop believing in the hope and change and realize that he is Bush 3rd, yet they still believe. I think he is just testing these people.

In another thread I said that it is clearer and clearer to me that they are not trying to save the oil and NOT the ocean...It's all about the $$$$
The govt was slow to respond and it does not seem they are intervening much at all...
Now they want tp fill the hole with crap..golf balls and tires...which will further polute..geeze!
I would like to know how much money the political folks have gotten/continue to get from big oil.
Suddenly it made more sense, for some reason, which we may not pick up for years, this oil spill was deliberate.
Whoever planned this lacks any trace of humanity, to put profit ahead of social and ecological destruction on this scale puts them in the league of the people that orchestrated the holocaust of WWII and the bombing and phosphorous attacks on civilians in Gaza, these people are not human and nothing will stand in the way of their ambitions and drive for money.
