[emptywheel] BP Well Bore and Casing May Be Blown - Page 8  

post #71 of 89
Why does everyone keep bringing up Nukes and BP in the same sentence. I must have missed the memo that stated BP is now a Nuclear Power with a Nuclear arsenal.

It amazes me how many people still think BP does not want to close this thing and amazes me even more how every one not named BP apparently gets a free pass on this (hint: they are located in Washington DC).

Are you even remotely connected to this issue? Russia has stated that a well placed low power nuclear bomb, below 100kT, would seal the well by melting the rock around it.

Pay attention when there's a disaster being discussed, will ya?

He needs to have a flower to so he can use the super awesome fireballs to seal it shut.

Since BP are the ones coming up with the ideas if they listened to the Russian suggestions they could have requested the well to be hit with a nuclear weapon in hopes that it would seal it. Obviously using a nuke has its drawbacks and thus the plan wasnt viable to them, sadly they have caused quite a lot of damage anyway without the use of weapons.

Did you even read what I said? Since when does BP have the authority to use a nuclear weapon? Since when does BP have a nuclear arsenal?

It was already stated that a nuclear detonation is not an option by the gov't. What do you expect BP to do? Go ask Iran or North Korea for some nukes?

yeah seriously. Bikini Atoll has nearly no radioactivity on the sea floor near the test locations. The environmental damage would have been minimal had they nuked it from day one and the nuke did what the Russians said it would.

OH really now. So bankrupting the one entity with the capacity and funding to actually stop the leak is the right course of action?


I hope you like the La Brea tar pits, because there's going to be some new ones all along the gulf coast if we do what you recommend.

Suing BP into oblivion is NOT the correct way to go about this. Neither is spouting off conspiracy theories about double standards. What we need to do is shut the eff up and let BP plug the hole. We can pimp slap them into next week AFTER it's plugged. If we sue them into oblivion now they'll either A: half-ass the repair and it will fail again in 10-15 years or B: They'll be forced to give up and let it spew oil until there's no more oil to spew.


When are you idiots going to realize that lawsuits aren't the end-all-be-all of corporate cockups?
When they quit thinking about getting rich quick and actually put forth the work and thought it takes to become well off without being born into it or hitting the lotto.

I don't think BP having the tools to get th job done has ever been a question. It's evident that they lack the resources. If you want to do some research you'll find that the effort is slow because (as BP admits) they just don't have the tools in the toolbox. Of course BP doesn't have nukes. I don't know why you keep posting about that. I don't think anyone thinks BP has nukes. That's just silly.

If and when the US decides nukes are an option I think we'll hear about it on every media outlet on the planet.

Did you read a word I said? As I just stated, BP would have to request to use a nuke, but it still involves BP... how are you not getting that? Allowed to or not it was at one time an option for BP to try and pursue, it was determined not viable and thus not put into implementation. Thats the end of the story, we are just speaking our mind on how we think it was a better solution that those that were attempted.

Please, quote me at any place where I said that BP was a nuclear power, or where BP has nukes? No one has said that BP should take their "secret stash" of nukes and use them.

Finally, someone realizes this. Nukes are not an option for BP... Only the current admin can authorize a nuclear detonation and they stated it's not an option.

The current admin already stated nukes are not an option. The decision is not, never has been and never will be made by BP. It is absolutely not an option available to BP. It is an option available to the goverment. That's what I'm trying to say.

If the government deemed a nuclear detonation the only option, I don't see them asking BP for their permission. As such, any nuclear decisions start and ends with the current admin.
