BP's profiteering as the days pass by I was given a big number in the hundreds of million's from my source and I do believe that number will change from day-to-day.
[edit on 7-7-2010 by DClairvoyant]
Jean-Michel Cousteau, son of the mythical French submarine explorer of whose birth they finish turning 100 years, has lived many spills. It was changed to Santa Barbara, a year before the petroleum spill that suffered this Californian city in 1969.
It documented to the Exxon Valdez, 20 years ago, and the Prestige, does eight. Now third expedition to the Gulf of Mexico is on the verge of making his, since the petroliferous platform Deepwater Horizon sank, where will speak with BP on possible solutions.
How long is going to last the impact of the spill?
There are tens of thousand of people distressed because during long time they are going to have to live with this. If you later go to the place of the Exxon Valdez 20 years, still you can verify the impact that has in people and environment. If diggings at heart of the sea, still there is petroleum to half meter. In the Gulf we have a Exxon Valdez spilled to the ocean every four days. We are in day 68, so it calculates.
Cree that the current can end up taking the crude one towards the coast This of the U.S.A.?
It will leave the Gulf, to the Caribbean, and will be gathered by the Current of the Gulf. And it will follow until England, France, Spain and Portugal. And by all means that will affect all those people, and to our system of vital support.
How much will take petroleum in arriving at Spain?
It would be necessary to know the speed of the Current of the Gulf, but I would say that in less of a year.
Cree that the lightening well that is going away to construct to stop the spill will work?
I do not believe that they can stop it. There is something of which nobody speaks, the pressure. If you plug it on the one hand, is going to burst by another one. For that reason, they do not do more than to invent histories, “we are trying it, we are trying it”, when in fact they want to let leave it everything. They could it have stopped if not outside by the great risk that there is of which it bursts on the other hand.
So it will continue appearing until petroleum finishes?
Basically. Or until the pressure descends. The pressure of petroleum is greater than the pressure of the water. It must leave by some side. And as the structure has fractures, if it is covered on the one hand leaves by another one.
The only solution is to capture the greater amount of possible petroleum?
Or everything. From my point of view, they are not doing it very well. To put the dispersing ones is a great error. It has to leave raises the crude one, to surround it and to pump it. Clear that when there are hurricanes the boats must go and petroleum will continue raising. But, so far, I do not see another possible option.
Has heard speak of the system developed by the Ecomerit company that would use bubbles of the natural gas to capture petroleum and to make raise it the surface, where could be captured?
Yes, I have heard speak of this system. It is a solution far better that the dispersing one, because it accelerates the ascent of petroleum to the surface, and for when it does, still it is possible to be used like fuel. What we see now in the surface does not serve like fuel. 40%, which causes that your car moves, has already evaporated. What it is is tar.
It speaks of the ocean like our system of breathing, vital support. What means?
We are 6,700 million people at the present time, that, on purpose, is what extraction of BP benefit every trimester. We added 100 million inhabitants to the planet every year. Or alive in Santa Barbara or at the top of a mountain, still you depend on the ocean. When you ski in that mountain, you ski in the ocean. When you drink a water glass, you are drinking the ocean. We are all connected and we depend all on the ocean for our quality of life.
He is inevitable to feel impotent before a as serious spill as the one of the Gulf. What can be done?
What it is happening in the Gulf is like a kick in the ass, a unique opportunity to change. Each one can be ambassador so that our community understands that we must protect our system of protection of life. We needed change. It is already worth of parlotear. Let us ask the people who make decisions, to the Government, to the industry, that accepts the fact that we needed an international commission to make sure that we have the capacity to come up, and to have a plan To, B and C in case of accidents, like in the space program. We can do it, and we will do it.
We cannot leave solve to the problem others?
Mírale to a boy to the eyes. You are going to Him to fail? We have capacity to do something by the world. In 1983 I knew a head of a tribe of the Amazon that showed some to me of the trees that had planted, that measured about four meters. It said to me, “ Ves those trees? I will not see the sufficiently high thing them. My children either. Perhaps my grandsons. But my bigrandsons yes ". Then the return occurred and it said to me, “ Ves that? That will be a good canoe ". That one was its constitution nonwritten of the future. That man as much hit me for the rest of life as my father did ".
