“Mr Obama is grappling with the US’s worst ever environmental disaster, the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. “
But there are some things about the Gulf situation I keep waiting to hear about.
It has been thrown around here and there that a super tanker could be used to syphon up the oily water and separate the il from it. I keep waiting to hear whether this is true. I mean, can such be done.
If this can be done, why wouldn’t BP go ahead on its own and put some tankers out there to do this very thing?
Does BP need some kind of Fed Gov permission to float such tankers and begin such tasks?
that’s separating oil from the water.
