Thread: Say they never get it capped...

    I'm sure this is a really stupid question, but what would happen if they kept the oil off the shoreline and then just lit it on fire? Would that amount of heat/pollution cause more damage than the oil will cause as-is?

    The problem is that the oil mixes somewhat with the water and it will not burn.

    Not a stupid question at all. I thought they actually tried something to that effect.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    They did to begin with, and it does work but once the oil mixes with the sea foam I don't believe that it will burn any longer.

    Sure its the water/oil mixing and not the fact they used dispersant? It's definitely too thin in some places but I think they could still burn off some of the thick patches

    Well now that doesn't sound very accurate does it.

    Here's a vid of the leak.

    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    AM radio seems to do a pretty good job of it too.

    Yep. And you guys blame Obama for everything.

    Hopefully the blame game will stop until the well is capped. Obama and his administration have kept "the boot on BP's neck", held hearings, and began a lawsuit against BP, all while the oil flows. Pelosi blamed Bush, Obama blamed MMS and Birnbaum, Thomas Frank blamed the free market and de-regulation, etc...

    I'd much rather they plug the well, so we can then focus on how many officials the Obama administration attempted to bribe in order for them to step down from congressional races. That story is much more fun to read about than the ongoing destruction of our natural resources.
