What is the solution to the Gulf Oil Disaster?

The steps are in place as well as they could be at this point.

 

1 - you try to collect as much oil from the well while

2 - you drill 2 relief wells

 

The problem was in the containment. We moved WAY too slow to contain what was already being released. We should have mobilized every resource including the help offered from the Dutch govt. Perhaps if we moved quicker the berms would not have even been needed, but now all we can do is Monday morning QB as that magnificent fishery is destroyed. We're still not doing enough in my opinion.

 

The Govt should never have relied on BP reports of the spill. The EPA should have been there from day one to determine the magnitude of the spill.

I believe the only solution to STOP all oil outflow is to drill 1 or 2 relief wells and use them to plug the blown out well.

I think you'll find that the EPA were there within hours and the EPA are advising the government.

they have started the relief wells correct?

 

I think they just need to place a wedding ring around the broken pipe and it will stop putting out ASAP. wink.gif

Then why was the size of the spill so off the mark? If that is the case, then we really had govt failure in the response.

And you know who the EPA head is :

 

Lisa Jackson, the forme DEP of New Jersy!

 

And her claim to fame: Confronted with NJ's growing bear population, rather than allow a comprehensive management plan directed by NJ F&W biologists, she decided that spending millions of dollars on bi-lingual Bear awareness pamphlets (how to live with bears) would do the trick!

 

Yep - good thing Lisa Jackson is there. Maybe they can produce bi-lingual pamphlets on how to live with the oil spill rather than minimize it's impact.

 

I feel much better now.

Reports say that MMS was too cozy with the oil companies and that enforcement of existing regulations was lax.

 

Would proper enforcement of existing regulations have prevented the disaster?

More government waste of taxpayers' money.
