BP Narrows Oil Leaks From Three To Two

First of all, I didn’t realize there was more than one leak!  The biggest oil leak is still gushing!  The plan is to lower a 4 story containment dome over the worst leak and then hopefully concentrate on the last one.  The dome will allow the oil to be funneled up to a rig on the surface.

Meanwhile, the weather is finally cooperating!  Other methods of containment include a controlled burn of oil on the surface, skimmers, barriers and floating devices used to corral oil.  The most risky method is the chemical dispersant idea.  There is a link to that story below.
