Oil
« on: July 31, 2010, 09:47:41 AM »

Isn't it funny?

For three months we have had a daily deluge about the BP oil well spewing oil and now about the clean up and relief well to come now that the spewing has stopped.

You did see where a barge hit another well and started another gusher just off the Louisiana coast didn't you? What has happened to it? I haven't seen anything about it in days.

the small well that was hit was nothing compared to the BP well. the small well was closed off and the spill is being cleaned up now. It was in Barataria bay, and owned by the state.
The thing I wonder about is now the media is reportig the BP oil is gone hmmm I wonder where it went?Huh??
care to guess?

So it has been stopped? Never heard that.

The BP oil is caught up in a current and sucked out into the Atlantic. They are looking in the wrong place.  grin

The small oil well was capped so there must not have been much pressure in it as it was an abandanded well head worthless with no to little oil.

Just 100 gallons per day? I saw a picture showing oil shooting way up into the air..... I thought it was oil.

It was shooting up in the air but that was due to pressure not volume

Those other spills have the advantage of not being a 24 inch highly pressurized pipe a mile underwater.  They can cap them quicker.

Yeah, our michigan spill has been pretty messy.  The kalamazoo river has been highly polluted in the past and starting to get back, and this won't help any.  It will mostly inconvenience the people that live on the river, since fishing is discouraged since there are no-eat recommendations on the fish already.

I guess what really blows my mind is how many organisms there are out there that will eat that nasty stuff.  Between the waves and the dispersant, they (the news, the scientists) make it sound like much of that gulf oil has already been eaten by bacteria, time will tell, and I'm sure the effects will linger for years, regardless.

On the bright side, there have been a lot of companies making oil spill containment products that have been selling a lot lately....
