If you’re REALLY interested in facts, the cold, dreary, unfashionable, and very much frustratingly dull facts, I suggest you spend some time reading a website called “the oil drum”. This website is a public forum, but it is also moderated by and led by people who actually DO this stuff for a living. They have clearly analyzed how this happened, what happened, and explain in great detail the technology, procedures, and so on that’s going on.
Splashy titles about conspiracies might get hits, but you’re never going to understand either the truth... Or how any of this actually works, until you get beyond them.
BTW, there’s far more informed postings on the issue of dispersants on that forum, as well. Not that I believe Obama would or has wasted any “crisis”, be it manufactured or real, in an effort to foist his agenda and enrich his cronies, but saying it could be shut off by now and done easily is completely wrong. They are in a desperate race against time and pollution and are trying things in a relatively reasonable order. STarting with the least risky and going on from there.
There is no “winning play” at this point in time. There will simply be a series of efforts made until something works. Note, this is not a defense of BP or anyone else. It is simply an argument that we need to understand the whole truth, and not get caught up in far fetched noise.
Bump. Some of the folks are getting really antsy.
Nobody, NOBODY in the oil patch would do anything like what's been suggested on this thread.
Ohwellden. Half-baked conclusions come from the uninformed.
Sometimes I despise the Internet, it lets completely half baked ideas get exposure.
I think this one passed Kooksville about 6 exits ago.
Yep..... Nothing like ‘kooksville’ in your review mirror.
Oh, for the love of God.
NO, HE WOULD NOT.
Have none of you read ANY OTHER BP THREADS, on each of which is explained why a nuke would be the worst idea ever?
Is this the one run by the old Weather Underground guy who essentially designed the Stimulus?
There's a lot of meat here--it could just mean that the Buffett/Soros/Goldman people were expecting this catastrophe to happen...eventually. Now it's sooner rather than later. The fact that so much of it is in Chicago, and an "education" crook is involved (all these radicals seems to run education in Chicago) would raise suspicion.
Someone get back to me about the Apollo.
>>Common sense allows that a oil company doesn’t let a catastrophic oil gusher go on for some vague reason.<<
The way some here are carrying on, you’d think the BP bigwigs had a meeting in which it was decided, “Yeah, losing 40% of our market capitalization in a month is all good. We got Obama on our side.”
The Oil Drum is one hell of a resource. The only good thing to come out of this catastrophe is that an excellent Website is now in the public consciousness.
Someone needs to end this charade.
Thank you for stating the very thought I had when I read this.
“There will simply be a series of efforts made until something works.”
So how many more steps until we try the nuclear option? That seems like the most straightforward, though I would guess that unlike the options now being tried, it might forego recovering oil from that location for decades or more.
Even if not looking good they continue in the game as the regime redirects all the problems at just the right time.
Remember you are dealing with a crime syndicate and the n normal rules of sense do not apply. Look at all the czars who did not make it to their posts, but still did make it to other posts or positions just as lucrative.
“Someone get back to me about the Apollo. “
Watch Beck as he has gone over who the Apollo group is. Another Obama related organization.
A simpler answer: letting the spill get bigger so that they can kill the “drill baby drill” and thus push green energy despite the price.
Another answer: wait for videos of summer vacations ruined by oil spills, use it to push green energy, carbon trading, and shutting down drilling.
They cite the studies that show that Corexit is less toxic than the dispersants the EPA wants them to use. Along with the fact that the supply of the other dispersants doesn't exist in large enough quantities to help and the companies that make them can't ramp up production enough to do any good.
