Those of us who followed this disaster closely, knew it wasn't over. You can't drill that deep and hit that much pressure, and assume a man-made
plug is going to contain, what was created over millions of years, and what amounts to something similar to a volcano's fissure in strength.
They sealed it so they could walk/sail away from any future claims for compensation. The thing is... this area has been damaged and that pressurised
gas/oil, will find its way to the surface and burst through. It's like light, and water... the minutest of cracks and it shines/leaks through.
Erosion from deep below will (IMO) get worse and worse and more gas and oil will erupt... It's a time bomb..it has to be, and BP or anyone else
cannot stop what's been started... Mother Earth is the only decider of that.
The potential for catastrophe is real, and we will be the last to hear about it.
The GOM is damaged beyond repair, certainly in our lifetime.
It makes me steam with rage that these people/corporations can blatantly destroy our beautiful planet and not give a flying fig about the future... be
it theirs, their children's, or their grandchildren's... It's insanity and criminal!
