Thread: Say they never get it capped...

    Default Say they never get it capped...

    Now it sounds like the "top fill" procedure is another failure.

    Do they know how much could potentially come out of the broken well?

    They say they won't have a "relief well" drilled until August, so it seems if they can't get it stopped using any of these first attempts we may have to wait until at least then... That would make it 3x larger than exxon valdez.

    I was wondering the same thing yesterday. I wonder why no one from the media has asked that question yet? Ignorance is bliss?

    If Bush were still president they wouldn't even ask. They would just lay the blame on him.

    Someone asked on a WGN radio program if we should be letting BP lead this effort because they'll want to preserve the well for future profit and wouldn't consider something that might work if it's not in their best interest. I thought it was an interesting comment.

    The problem we have is that BP is the only one with the technology to plug the leak at that depth (at least from what I've heard on the news)

    If you look at their effort thus far it certainly appears they are doing exactly that. First, a cap that filters the oil up to a ship... second attempt, plugging the whole with mud that can be removed easily... third appears to be drilling a relief well..

    There isn't anyone out there now who is laying blame on President Obama?

    If not, I'll provide you some sources that may give you a glimpse into something that will surprise you.

    I've heard Fox News laying some blame and that Carvill guy, but that's it. I haven't been watching the tv much lately, though because it's kayak season. But if you have some interesting links please do send them to me.
