Yup. Try this one: 'Out of sight, out of mind'. If you can't see it, there is no problem. What happened to all that cool tech we invented over the last 30-odd years for dealing with oil spills? To be more specific, where's the oil-skimmer ships?

If I can find them so easily, how come BP doesn't have a frigging fleet of them in the Gulf already?

According to Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, much of the equipment he asked for a long time ago is still waiting for the Obama administration's "approval." Obama is evidently too busy planning his Memorial Day Chicago vacation, going to fundraisers for Barbara Boxer, shaming Arizona and the 70% of Americans who support Arizona, etc., to be bothered by a few drops of trivial oil in the ocean.

Every one who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the Universe-a spirit vastly superior to that of man. - Albert Einstein

They could have stopped this well blow weeks ago, by killing it totally...it's all about "saving the well" with such a rich deposit. They want the oil money.

Talk of a takeover swirls around BP

When a whale is wounded, it does not take long for the sharks to circle. With BP floundering in the Gulf of Mexico, the market has been abuzz with talk of a takeover of the British oil group.

The substantial erosion of BP's market value - its shares have fallen 34 per cent since the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded on April 20 - means the company looks affordable to rivals for the first time in decades.

BP's market value, which surpassed Royal Dutch Shell at the start of the year, has fallen to $115bn, lower than ExxonMobil at $280bn, PetroChina at $278bn and Shell at $159bn

BP May Have To Sell Assets To Pay Cleanup, Legal Bills

BP (NYSE: BP) may have to part with some of its prized assets, including its 26% stake in Alaska's Prudhoe Bay the largest U.S. oil field, to pay for cleanup and legal costs associated with the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

The spill is the largest oil spill in U.S. history.

Investors believe asset sales by BP are more likely than a takeover of the oil giant by a rival firm because the company's total costs related to the Gulf spill are not yet known.

Estimates have ranged as high as $37 billion.

The sale of the Prudhoe Bay stake and other assets could attract suitors such as Hess (NYSE: HES), PetroChina (NYSE: PTR) according to Bloomberg News.

PetroChina is China's largest oil company.

Prudhoe Bay and other Alaskan fields were BP’s largest source of crude in the Western Hemisphere in 2009 after the Gulf of Mexico, according to Bloomberg. BP operates four pipelines in Alaska.

Assets in Azerbaijan and Angola belonging to BP could also be up for grabs, Bloomberg reported.

See what I mean!!! Sorry I just can't help myself---

This spill is nothing compared to what they are planning next ( NOTHING ) It involves NASA the sun and Space weather---Downed satts, power grids, all GPS systems ETC---The conditioning is underway---first reported on Drudge---yeah yeah although it's in it's infancy--so they say 🙄 🙄 🙄

If you have to wonder or imagine just how bad that spill/leak is then you need not venture to far away from home, or play with sharp objects-- Seriously it's an unimaginable DISASTER!

Be well everyone---gone again---just very sad how no one can see the truth these days!.

"The sun is waking up from a deep slumber, and in the next few years we expect to see much higher levels of solar activity. At the same time, our technological society has developed an unprecedented sensitivity to solar storms. The intersection of these two issues is what we're getting together to discuss."

I thought it was amusing that I just read your post, then pop over to Drudge and there is a link to NASA saying exactly what you are talking about. Everyone get out the generators!

Zounds!

FOCUS, gentlemen. I know there's little we can do on a frigging blog, but keeping it real wouldn't hurt.

(Flow/leakage rates deleted by vulcan6gun; nobody can make up their minds how much is coming out.)

"AP" wrote: When asked why BP did not have containment systems on standby in case of a leak, BP spokesman Robert Wine said there was no reason to think an accident on this scale was likely. "It's unprecedented," he said. "That's why these caps weren't there before."

Over 150 years of oil drilling, & over 150 years of oil well disasters. Nobody can honestly tell me that "it's unprecedented". I have to ask...really, I do...What the hell happened to being prepared for the worst?

"AP" wrote: Robert Wine said there was no reason to think

Say what?

Suddenly, I feel stress coming on due to not being able to express myself properly without getting into some sort of trouble for it. My, what a world we live in these days.
