OK man, I'll call the president of BP right now.

Thanks a million spidergoat.
You DO have a direct line to Satan!?!?
And on that note, I suppose this same Red Phone can contact the "president" of Monsanto as well?
There are some perks to being one of the 12 Jew bankers that control the world.
The secret moonbase? I've always been especially jealous about that part.
If we assume that BP, the U.S. Government, and all the inventors (both geniuses and crackpots alike) fail to ever stop this leak, how bad will this get? Are we thinking tainted beaches all the way up the North American east coast? Will every island in the Caribbean be rendered uninhabitable? Will it eventually leak it's way to European shores?
I honestly don't know, has anyone else dug up any credible predictions?
How big is the oil reserve? It could leak for a hundred years. People on the coast could burn sand in the winter to keep warm.
Reports by scientists, engineers, and the government show that they all knew the Gulf of Mexico seabed was unstable as early as a decade ago. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!

I thought peak oil meant that we already ran out of oil several years ago. How could it continue to leak for a hundred years?
One thing that seems prevalent everywhere, including this thread, is that we forget that this Gulf Oil Gusher event, as well as many others, could be the straw that breaks the camel's back, even equating to a K-T (killer-titanic) event.
We do not yet know enough to weigh that lurking straw, but it is always less than increments of the "normal load capacity".
Yes? I'm listening...:shh:
How about putting an implosion bomb in the drilled oil hole? To collapse it? Simply a vacuum bomb?
Hey, I didn't mean a REALLY BIG one, just a small vacuum pocket that implodes the walls. We evacuate the area first ofcourse...

All concrete will set up (cure) under water. It actually cures better under water than it does above water. you can purchase a special type of cement at your local home improvement center or hardware store known as hydraulic cement.
So put a form around the wellhead, pour in the cement and it will be encased within minutes!
Given things a second thought I'd go with that idea instead of mine.
Because exploded walls cannot hold pressure. Oil can make it's way easily through cracks.
That was the plan after the top kill was in place. You can't pour concrete into a flow of oil, it will get washed out. So, you pump in mud as a vast rate, which overcomes the oil pressure, forming a plug, then a concrete cap is poured. Sometimes, they do a series of mud, concrete, mud, concrete.
Welcome to capitalism..
They have it capped.
