What do you suggest the people in the gulf do? Leave their homes, jobs, possessions on some wild speculations? I have yet to see any of these predictions people have made come true. The floor hasn't collapsed, people are not dropping dead all over, the blowout preventer hasn't toppled over and the gulf hasn't blown up.
There are a whole lot of platforms and drilling rigs out in the gulf owned by other companies where engineers, geologists etc work. Are you implying that these other companies and people are all risking the many lives of those thousands who work in the patch as well as people on land?

I heard somewhere the cap is 45 tons ??? there must be a lot of pressure to actually tilt that thing...im afraid that if it does topple over, there will be a super pressurized blast of methane and oil.
