This doesn't involve placing blame. It does involve radical reform for the drilling industry. It involves moving towards green living as a race. It involves standing TOGETHER against those who would subvert truth for capital gain and disregard nature and humanity.
Well mighty america has already turned down free help from 17 nations already on 21 different occasions. Im starting to think the US government actually likes what has been happening and is in bed with BP....

It is miracle mud. Either a miracle or simple petro-physics and geology.
Google "Lost Circulation Material". "mud" isn't dirt. "mud" is actually drilling fluid which you put LCM into; in order to stop leaks or seepage through cracks or fractures in the wellbore. Add enough LCM and you can plug off pretty much anything. Squeeze cement in at a high pressure and it'll plug off into any crack or fracture, stopping the leaks and seepage. I'm not even guessing when I say they will use tons and tons of LCM to plug every crack and fracture.

You should all do some research. Why do you think thousands of wells have been drilled in the Gulf? Could it be because there is so much oil under there that it oozes out of the seabed all by itself?? As it also does off the California coast?? Wake up people, this blowout was planned as a way to convince people to bring in the Carbon Taxes that Goldman Sachs et al need to form the basis of their next great derivatives swindle. There is nothing wrong with the well casing, oil is not spreading from the wellhead for miles around, the seafloor is not going to collapse. Fearmongering-for-profit is all this sham is, and they don't care if they wreck the lives of thousands and foul the Gulf for years to do it.
Just a couple of links I meant to post...
A little info on oil seeps:

I PROMISE IT WAS THERE. as soon as i find it i will post the link. This coming from MSM is making me really wonder what is going on down there.
