Oil giant BP PLC told congressional investigators that a decision to continue work on an oil well in the Gulf of Mexico after a test warned that something was wrong may have been a "fundamental mistake," according to a memo released by two lawmakers Tuesday.
The document describes a wide array of mistakes in the fateful final hours aboard the Deepwater Horizon—but the main revelation is that BP now says there was a clear warning sign of a "very large abnormality" in the well, but work proceeded anyway.
The rig exploded about two hours later.
The congressional memo outlines what
According to the memo, BP identified several other mistakes aboard the rig, including possible contamination of the cement meant to seal off the well from volatile natural gas and the apparent failure to monitor the well closely for signs that gas was leaking in, the congressmen wrote in their post-meeting memo. An immense column of natural gas, erupting from the oil well, fueled the fireball that destroyed the rig.

I ask all people to take this as a sign, of near future distress.
The only thing that will change is the food chain. After a few months of the oceans dying food will become scarce and the NWO will go into hiding.
Gather your supplies now before it is too late.
Go to a dollar store and pick up beans, rice and canned goods.

It is very easy to blame Bp for this and rightly so but dont forget all companies would have done the same as Bp. If anything this should be a wake up call to get of oil and # the capitalistic rewards of having oil. This however will not happen as the worlds population are nothing more than idiots at best or no brained at worst. I think people should be blaming each other for their reliance on oil in an age where we can actually stop using it altogether but that requires intelligence something that is seriously lacking in todays world.
