In my humble opinion if the data is read properly then these current rotations should contain a proportion of the oil in the gulf itself.
Apparently there is a skimmer near Singapore that could suck up more in a day than what has been accomplished up to now.
My source? max keiser on rttv today Friday.
As I stated in my initial reply this could make other organizations very wealthy if they waited just outside international waters -- if the oil
leached into the conveyor and moved up towards Canada etc. i guess ownership is not a problem regarding the oil if it reaches international waters as
I feel it would be deemed 'abandoned'.
ok who wants to chip in toward the cost of a tanker or twenty, all crew and kit and tap up Lord Dyson for some assistance? in me dreams!
The great columns likely are full of Corexit .. and cannot be processed, also they are particle-ized so great expense even if the dispersant were not
present (had left the oit, and entered the atmosphere, as it is wont to do).
The Great 'bank' of oil bigger than Maryland and Delaware combined, and thick enough to cover said land mass to a depth of several hundred feet has
been exposed to salt water for so long that the valuable and combustible esters have departed, leaving essentially oil turning to asphalt: .. Some day
in the future it will be gobbled by microbes and become a very viable habitat ..
This is from the well, no one spoke of, the one they tried to fudge the coordinates on (as I understand it).
Not only was this a massive waste, and a massive contamination of the area, and of the lands downwind of that 'summer on-shore flow' which makes the
rains that time of year, -- and the flagrant lack of concern for the health of workers they hired and bullied; ... it is a horrible example of how not
to be responsible!!!
(I mean it is now bordering on ludicrous .. you may not dig up the sand on the beach?)
The entire thing is an exercise in grownups reverting to childish bullying because they really messed up, and refused/refuse to own up!! ... Where
is the mature and responsible core of this company ... or does it actually lack one (seems) ... ???
Worse, they took the pres for a ride on their excursion .. I wonder how ....
Deep Water drilling is very much (VERY) more lucrative than regular drilling.
Too bad they will still be doing it world wide (think South American) ... without any better contingency plans than they had in the Gulf ....
Maybe someone should approach the United Nations? Maybe someone should rein these guys in?
