Leak finally plugged but Obama faces his own Gulf crisis
CLOSE [X] WASHINGTON: Engineers have stopped the flow of oil and gas into the Gulf of Mexico from a gushing BP well, the federal government’s top oil spill commander, US Coast Guard Admiral Thad Allen, says.
The "top kill" effort, launched the day before by industry and government engineers, had pumped enough drilling fluid to block all oil and gas from the well, Admiral Allen said.
Stock price is not rising yet so I doubt the well is capped.... You're proven wrong once again. You do not understand and that's part of the problem, there are too many people who don't understand and that is why accidents like this happen. Complacency! Human error is unacceptable in these critical matters, there must be no possibility for environmental contamination and every single aspect of these operations must be completely foolproof. The only human error that occurred here was that of being unprepared and not having or following a protocol designed specifically to avoid this kind of industrial accident. BP has proved themselves untrustworthy in multiple ways.
Every gun is a loaded gun, treat them all with the appropriate respect for what they are and you'll never have an accident!
Have you ever handled a gun? When you were holding it, did the barrel bore ever point towards someone while you were holding it? If so, you mishandled that gun, please never handle another one until you've been properly trained to handle firearms.
