That area is already a dead zone. I guess this will just seal the deal.

another colossol fuck-up from BP. word i,s they helped block attempts by the US government to impose tougher regulations on off-shore drilling last year, claiming existing voluntary guidelines were sufficient

I'm surprised there's less public outrage considering what's happened. In time this shit is going to seep into the ground in Louisiana and there's going to be a lot more problems than what they have now. Interesting story that got leaked to the press..

Quote:
A confidential government report on the unfolding spill disaster in the Gulf makes clear the Coast Guard now fears the well could become an unchecked gusher shooting millions of gallons of oil per day into the Gulf.

"The following is not public," reads the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Emergency Ops document dated April 28. "Two additional release points were found today. If the riser pipe deteriorates further, the flow could become unchecked resulting in a release volume an order of magnitude higher than previously thought."

Leaked report: Government fears Deepwater Horizon well could become unchecked gusher — Alabama Rivers Alliance
Drill baby Drill, how's that working out? Fucking retarded bitch. Continue winking during speeches, maybe that will save your environment killing ass. BP better get criminal charges against them if the claims are true. Would people want their pets living, drinking this shit? So where's the outrage for all the sea life and animals that are getting the short-straw? This is going to get much worse when all this starts going into the soil.

The easiest thing to do is blame BP. But lets be fair, who knows how it blew up. And as far as them capping the hole. There gonna have to drill a secondary hole to relieve the pressure and that will take 90 days.


I think this will go down as another historical event. But dont expect that to curb anything. Were too human...
I understand what you're saying but in my opinion there should've been a plan in place for if this were to happen. When you're dealing with something that can harm the environment as much as this you put plans in place BEFORE HAND to stop the leak.

Oh wait, BP and the rest of the oil companies don't give a shit about the environment, nevermind.

Last year (2009) BP spent around 16 million on paying off Washington. 16 million dollars that could've been used to fund alternative fuel research, more safety testing, etc. This disaster is absolutely proof that we need to quick sucking on the oil bottle and use more advanced methods.

Now this shit is heading towards Florida and may hit the coral reef. That is unacceptable in more ways than one. It's just fucked (yes this situation pisses me off), it's all about greed, money before the environment.



^^Sorry we need to drill more? For what a slight benefit in 10 years? As far as I'm concerned, the only reason the "drill baby drill" bullshit came about is because BP and the rest of the oil companies are lining their pockets with cash. "Here's $500,000, all you have to do is look the other way".

Thanks Snowolf, and I agree, lock them up. Negligence in other aspects of life are criminal, why isn't this? It's killing animals, sea life and vegetation. If you were to be negligent and your pets died, that is a crime. This has the potential to not only kill, but hamper breeding and new habitat formation.

This quote is quite pleasing to hear, I just wish it was coming from someone higher up in the government..

Quote:
“What’s happening in the gulf should convince us that drilling for oil for any reason is the last thing we need to be doing,” said Paul Wolff, a Tybee Island city councilman and wind-energy enthusiast. “It would be insane to risk future generations, and the environment we now enjoy, for a potentially disastrous resource that is, ultimately, a finite resource anyway.”

Oil spill emboldens Georgia wind-energy advocates, but it may be slow in coming | ajc.com
Obviously wind-energy wouldn't solve our oil thirst, but in terms of the above quote, wouldn't the Gulf of Mexico be a perfect place to build these? As far as aesthetics go, they are much easier on the eye than drilling rigs.
