thank god i'm a clam man...
l^^^ Man take that shit to Town Square on the other site. Don't stink up this site with this crap.
Wow that would be something to see. I can understand the reasoning behind NOT using it though. Currently it's a "semi" controlled leak, but an explosion could turn it into a completely uncontrolled leak. In which case we would just have to wait for it to run out.I always wondered why we didn't do this in the first place.
Oil stopped gushing into the Gulf of Mexico from BP's busted well Thursday for the first time since the disastrous spill began, the oil giant said. It was the most significant milestone yet in BP's effort to control one of the worst environmental disasters in U.S. history.
Now begins a waiting period to see if the cap can hold the oil without blowing a new leak in the well. Engineers will monitor pressure readings incrementally for up to 48 hours before reopening the cap while they decide what to do next. The cap is only planned as a temporary fix until a final plug is set from underground, maybe next month.
Though not a permanent fix, the solution has been the only one that has worked to stem the flow of oil since April. BP is drilling two relief wells so it can pump mud and cement into the leaking well in hopes of plugging it for good by mid-August.
no one is really saying but my guess is a minimum of 10 years. Then again if you look at the valdiuz oil spill in alaska they are still turning over rocks and finding oil on shores there to this day.Heard about that today, now how many years until the oil is all cleaned up?
