Skip to comments.Current timeline to shut down Gulf of Mexico oil spill: three months
Posted on 05/03/2010 9:07:47 AM PDT by Nachum
Federal officials speaking about the Gulf of Mexico oil spill Sunday morning appeared to be steeling the Louisiana coast and the nation for consequences that could be catastrophic.
The officials, who run the agencies charged with mitigating the impact of the spill on Americaâs Gulf coast, used unusually stark words to describe the situation and the difficulties of the remedy.
Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said it was the federal governments job to keep the boot on the neck of BP, which is running the cleanup effort.

It only took five words out of rush today before he called obama a tyrant for pitting BP as the enemy
We is scrooooooooooooooooood!
is that old windbag still on the air ?
Osama likes to reek structural and financial disaster...This will not only do it...it hands half the deck to the oil drilling Muslim countries.
they pray it will be catastrophic
A tactical nuke would solve the problem.
We need to build more nuclear power plants,
not only for electrically powered passenger rail systems,
but also for desalination plants that can do double-duty as seafood farms.
“never let a good crisis.....well, you know...
First time I’ve heard Rush use the term “tyrant” in referring to him.
Is that new?
I agree. The ocean floor there is basalt granite. Nice hard stuff. Bury that blow hole under rubble with a nuke. Optimally you drill 30-100 feet down and detonate it down there. Would also contain the radioactive elements
If we are going to drill in ocean water, there must be a fail-safe plan in place to prevent this from happening-—some sort of valve that can be shut off at the source. I am surprised that an accident like this could happen.
If it was an accident.
This seems incredible to me, that anything which can be done in 90 days can’t be rushed and done sooner.
Do you mean to tell me they are trying each approach first and only doing the relief well AFTER all else fails???
In the meantime, gas prices jumped 15 cents since Friday.
“crisis is the rallying cry of the tyrant”, old windbag
I dont think so, for example 3 mile island didnt stop nuclear power - coal being cheaper put an end to nuclear power.
All that means is that enviro-regulations and obstructionism have been more successful at driving up the cost of nukes more than coal.
Nuclear power is actually much cleaner and more efficient than coal.
That's why we should be building more nukes instead of coal plants.
