[emptywheel] BP Well Bore and Casing May Be Blown - Page 5

If I lived in the gulf area I would get out ASAP. Soon as the fishing and tourism grind to a halt, their lives will be destroyed. 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.
Comparing an oil spill to a disaster that killed hundreds of thousands of people, injured many more, made millions homeless and probably left more than the death toll shows buried under rubble with severe injurys to die a slow death on their own?

Wow.

Chip on your shoulder much?

Haiti was a situation where money and aid support had a DIRECT effect on the situation at hand.

You think throwing money at this will solve the problem? You think BP is in need of money? You think Kanye West needs to donate to BP? *** is your problem?

People reacted to Haiti because they had the ability to make a difference to people who were already living in poverty and had no means of helping themselves. What difference can they make now? The problem in Haiti wasn't an enigma that needed solving. People needed to be rescued, simple.

Here, the fix is not so straight forward.

Do you really not understand the difference between emergency aid that can literally save lives and what is going on right now?

Oy. I only get bad thoughts in my head when the word "teabagger" is used. Also it looks like that senator was staring into a light or had work done because he seemed to be smiling the whole time. Creepy.
Bo Tox. It's what's for breakfast.

I agree with Kush.

Why dont we see any other countries stepping in to releave places like Haiti? When does the US get to take a break?
Stuff like this happens near the US and we are SOL. I cant even begin to imagine how much devastation this is going to bring.

Yep. Our system has much experience with skimming off the top. Should be a walk in the park...or beach...or tar pit.

Excuse my lack of knowledge on the subject, but I see people mentioning the use of nukes to solve this. How does that work exactly?

After the blast an army of mutant crabs will eat all the oil.
