From AP report this evening:
"Retired Coast Guard Admiral Thad Allen said that when that vessel is hooked-up and siphoning oil, government officials and BP will decide in seven to 10 days whether to move to a four-vessel system that can capture up to 80,000 barrels a day."
They now need 4 vessels to capture 80,000 barrels/day???
Is this a foken BP/Government cover-up. They are starting to admit that this leak is friegging massive. The whole sea-floor must be cracked just as the Russian scientists have been saying!!!!
And that is just the crude they are talking about, what about the methane gas that is escaping, that must be great for the atmosphere. If your car does not pass emissions you get a ticket and a fine, they are pumping methane and by products of burned off crude into the atmosphere at rates so high they cannot even estimate it accurately !
ROFLMFO- yahoo blocked my reply.
US physicists are designing financial products to fix the mess and power point presentations are being made to sell these to teamsters retirement fund and CALPERS. The handicapper general will be kicking aas and everything will be fine.
foken idiot. BP admitted 5,000 barrels first....then 10,000....and so on and now 80,000?????
Do you know what comes out of the ground along with oil??? Hydrogen sulfide, sulfides of all kinds...all toxic....cyanides.....toluene/nezene (carcinogenics)....you name it. that's why crude is treated in refineries so that they can recover all these toxic compounds before they can sell a gallon of product (gasoline, jet fuel, whatver)
Bunch of foken idiots. This is a disaster of unimaginable proportions and all you care is to make enough money to pay for your next lunch
