[emptywheel] BP Well Bore and Casing May Be Blown - Page 2  

post #11 of 89
Thread Starter 
The problem is that if the casing and other subsurface protection is breached BP (or anyone apparently) cannot seal the well.

In that scenario they have two choices to either let it bleed out over the course of god knows how many years or to try nuking it, correct?

Either way there is no nice ending to this.

I feel bad for those that do live there and I would sue BP for not only ruining the environment but also sue them for damages to the devastating effects it will do financially to them.

What I think is funny is how we jumped all over Haiti with relief and fund raisers and concerts to save Haiti, but with this issue...nothing. I don't see P.Diddy dancing around for saving the gulf and its residence. I don't see Kanye West calling Obama a racist for not saving those people with FEMA. It's all a double standard and its sickening.

If something goes wrong here in the U.S the government is slow to react if at all. But if something happens to a 3rd world country then we were there the day before it happened and the concerts and relief programs were already in place 30 minutes after the catastrophic event. Just seems very odd to me.
are you comparing the oil leak, to a natural disaster which killed 230,000 people and made over 1 million people homeless?



and wow, they have tried like 8 times now to fix the leak? for god sakes aren't you suppose to plan for this ****? you don't start making plans after the disaster happens.

Yes I am comparing it to a natural disaster because this is going to be much worse then 230,000 people dieing, this is going to put MILLIONS of people out of a home and a livelihood. And, yes you're correct they should have had fixing plans just in case something like this happens.

Also, I wasn't stating they sue BP right now obviously they need to fix the leaks but its been over a month and all their dumb ass ideas havent done anything. What I find funny is that Goldman Sachs dumped a good bit of BP's stock a few days before this even happened. Coincidence? Maybe, I dunno but it really seems strange to me personally.

Umm what? At least they will live to rebuild their lives, unlike the 230,000 dead mentioned.

Really? Ok, you tell me how several million people that don't have a job or any hopes in the future for any kind of job tell me how they will survive, please.

So you are suggesting they are just going to be left to die and starve in the streets and there is no hope or any future for them?

I'm glad to see you have so much confidence in your government and people.

Correct. just like a lot of people that suffered during Katrina. Very poor response and support. It will be no different this time around. Oh, and wait for hurricane season when all that oil gets sucked up in there any spread across the lands, thats going to be WONDERFUL.
