That's what I'm here for.
A man works hard all week, so he doesn't have to wear pants all weekend.

Just wanted to put in my 2 cents worth...Did you hear about the Texas congressman who apoligized to BP about the Obama White House getting BP to set up that 20 billion relief fund?  Just goes to show how bought off our politicians are on both sides of the aisle...With a mentality like this we are screwed!  If this tragedy doesnt get our addicted asses off oil, we never will and the terrorists win!

Anyone have any guesses what they may eventually do? They may never figure it out.

Hire a PR guy to tell us they are doing us a favor. The fish was tainted with mercury and all kinds of bad stuff. So - they put an end to people eating unhealthy fish/crawdads/shrimp/etc.
The moral majority, is neither.

Im starting to get the feeling that they will never be able to stop it. This isnt like a broken tanker.

 Its already not even on the news anymore. Stories about Justin Bieber's new girlfriend seem to be of more importance to most Americans.

I cant believe people are not shaken with constant fear. Maybe I am being negative but I think this is going to turn out to be the worst disaster in the history of mankind. I hope this is just one of my nightmares and not the reality but I am starting to wonder.

I THINK the problem would be easy to solve; but irreversible. And BP doesn't want to lose what is obviously a plentiful well. So their solutions are geared around being able to tap back into the pipeline that is there. Otherwise, I bet you could pop a couple of explosive charges around it, jamming the pipe shut, burying it in debris and never being able to use it again.
The moral majority, is neither.

I hear you loud and clear. This is one of the worst environmental disasters the world has ever experienced.

It makes me sick inside when I see the photos of it's effects.

They better get it capped very soon.

Just trying to inject some humor into what really isn't a funny situation at all.

  Dude, if I didn't laugh at life, I'd cry. Funny stuff you got there.

......... This is one of the worst environmental disasters the world has ever experienced.


Is it really?  I honestly don't know, but I'm guessing many worse things have happened.  This one really hits home because its in the Gulf of Mexico.  If it was in Russia, China, Middle East or some South American backwater then we'd barely know about it.

Sadly, this has to happen close to home for Americans to really care.

I couldn't agree with you more.

Yes it is.

As far as the world goes there were plenty to go around.

Here's America’s Top 10 Worst Man Made Environmental Disasters. I think this oil leak will make it to the top if it is not capped soon.

It would be nice to have some quantifiable explanation for, or at least the reasoning behind, that list. The fact that TMI is included makes it seem more like a fringe eco-crusader thing than a serious consideration of the environmental impacts. They should call it "Ten Environmental Disasters of Varying Degrees of Severity, In No Particular Order".

Agreed. It's hard to precisely measure the impact. Even harder to rank them.

Keep in mind that list is of US-man made disasters - Reactor #4 at Chernobyl will be unsafe for the next 20000 years.
