oddeye It doesn't look that bad. Bet I could swim down there and fill up a few containers with sweet black liquid gold.
kingarthur Except the column-like structure they show at the end is supposedly eight stories tall.
godot Word is that the proportion of gas to oil is increasing. This is positive, since it means that the localized pressure in the reservoir around the bore is falling below the bubble point. Natural gas is no longer bubbling out of the crude as it rises up the casing, but is instead forming a gas "cap" in the reservoir. If BP and the Gulf environment is lucky, this gas will continue to displace crude in the flow, and at some point we'll see a relatively benign methane leak while the relief well is being drilled.
Camonk I ain't worried. Humans have no effect on the environment! NONE
Meatsack Jones Away with your blaming BP! I am sure these leak happen all the time...naturally!
Koda Maja I for one am proud of us humans. What other animal could ruin something as vast and magnificent as the ocean?
BorrowedSolution Whales could do it. For all we know, whales did Gulf Oil Disaster. Open your eyes. Open them.
sosage First robot arm is like, "uh! UH! UH! SHIT! UHM!"
Rodents of Unusual Size When I found out about this I literally cried. I fucking hate everything when I watch this.
Callamon I heard on the radio that people were using this film to estimate the flow as 5-20 times higher than what was being reported.
