Enough is enough. We need a GREEN REVOLUTION, NOW. It can be peaceful or it can be violent, but it needs to be.
All incompetent, unresponsive, apathetic, self-serving clowns within both the Obama administration and the petrochemical companies need to be 86’ed, one way or the other. It’s time for them to either freely step aside or get justifiably kicked to the curb.
Unless your willing to give up your car, heating and powering your house, riding on trains, buses, planes and any form of public transportation, and become totally self sufficient for food (so it doesn't get trucked from outside communities), you shouldn't be preaching about a green revolution.

Is it true that more oil leaks into the gulf from natural seepage every
day than is what's coming from this drilling site? If true, it must be the
concentration of having so much oil coming from such a small area that's
causing all the dire "disaster" and "catastrophe" warnings. -cwm

They're doing something. The camera just panned left, and then right. Like they were checking the lighting and stuff. Seems like it's live. I'm watching for little anomalies that would prove/disprove that it's live. But it seems to be live.

I'm thinking this spill is closer to 120 million gallons then 45 million gallons putting it up there toward the worst spill ever and its only been leaking for a month. I can discharge or load close to 100,000 barrels a day at 50-100 psi that's 4.2 million gallons a day. This well is pushing more pressure through a bigger pipeline. 5000 barrels is bul# BP knows it too, any one of their refineries can load or discharge that much product in an hour at 50-100psi through a 12inch pipeline. Do not listen to BP, quite fighting about barrel figures. I move this # for a living as do 1000's of other tankermen out there. This well even if its only pushing 50-100psi over the pressure it needs to overcome water pressure has to be leaking at least 100,000 barrels in a 24hour period.

They need to bore another hole next to it and "NUKE IT". What do we have to lose other than it might make the leak bigger instead of sealing it.
If they use the right kind of Nuke the radiation will be minimal. Sounds like the only option.

The well casing should have to be inserted well before the drill hits the deposit and it should have to be cemented in at least 2 weeks prior to finishing the hole down to the oil or gas. This is to give the cement time to set. The casing should have ridging to make this cement have a tight wedged grip on the miles of rock around it. This is required because the lift pressure on a pipe in this case could easily reach 20 million pounds of lift. This is an insane amount of up pressure. Even at 70,000 psi it would lift about 140 million pounds. (almost 64,000 long tons!) …

Just now beginning to get that idea, eh? Join the club .... it's been an active one for some years now. No dues, no meetings required, just an ability to look at & comprehend simple truths.
