Here is an article about the leaked findings from the presidential panel on the BP Oil Spill Disaster:

Gulf Oil Spill, One Month Later

So guess what??  BP still has not contained the gushing oil that continues to pour into the ocean for a month now!  The oil is moving its way inland and up the delta of the Mississippi River.  Now Florida is possibly threatened.  BP says it could be (sit down please) August until this thing in capped but “not to worry” because BP COO Doug Suttles is optimistic that the Gulf “will make a full recovery.”  Well thanks Doug – we can all sleep better knowing that.  Did you call Dionne Warwick and the Psychic Friends Network to get that info Doug????  Y’all have lost all credibility with me.

There has been a lot of finger-pointing and blame game but nobody, including the US Government, has done anything remotely close to stopping the oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico.  IMHO this is an environmental disaster of epic proportions and the US Government should be diverting any and all resources necessary to shut the oil off!  Tell BP to go back to Britain.  We’ll fix it ourselves and send those knuckleheads the bill!

Somebody better light a fire under some one or some thing before it’s too late.

Full recovery my patoot!

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.
