What it means that there is a FRACTURE from the wellbore 18,000 feet below the ocean floor, that extends for upto a mile away and then that fracture comes back up to the ocean floor again. And there may be more than one of them.
When you see "leak" and "seepage" realize someone is trying to handle your visual representation of what this means.
They are trying to make it seem like a leaky faucet in your bathroom.
Instead of a FRACTURE in the EARTH CRUST that is at least about 5280 feet long and 18,000 feet deep.

Umm, i'm sorry, and please dont call me a government disinfo agent shill BP apologist for asking this, but you speak it with such certainty, i just MUST ask;
what evidence do you have of something so specific?
I just dont understand how we can disregard dubious evidence on one side, but blindly accept it on the other.

BP is already moving the Goal Posts.
They said 9,000 PSI needs to be at the wellhead -- it's at 7,500 PSI;
I think there will be a lot of happy talk explaining any result. I'm not getting my hopes up -- but it would be really great if the oil stops flowing. I just don't think it will.
The WORST result is that if we go on with business as usual even if they manage to secure the well. As the search for oil goes deeper into the ocean -- the costs are only going to make cutting corners more of a temptation. And since these companies can "pay" as much as they want for candidates because of our fascist supreme court -- the government merely acts as cover for whatever they want to do.

LMAO! I just freaking love this quote from www.foxnews.com...
Also, seepage from the seafloor was detected over the weekend less than two miles away, but Allen said it probably has nothing to do with the well. Oil and gas are known to ooze naturally from fissures in the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico.
Are they serious? hahaha!
