Re: Guard watches coast for oil slick's first wave

Some idiots at BP made a catastrophic mistake and people immediately want to start playing the political blame game. Pathetic. I'm sure this democratic administration is doing just as much as any republican administration would.

This is an ecological and economic disaster for the gulf areas down there. The focus should be on wildlife, cleanup,and the families/jobs/businesses left in ruin as a result. The fact that people are politicizing this is further proof of how irreparably partisan and broken our government has become.

Get a grip.

Smartest post yet.

Sometimes just looking a situation for what it is instead of trying to figure out which side of the government is conspiring behind it is all that really needs to be said.

Re: Guard watches coast for oil slick's first wave

Getting worse, I don't think we can stop this. It appears the leak is increasing in severity by the day. The spill tripled in size in 2 days. There are 10's of millions of barrells of oil in the deposit they were tapping. This is some history making stuff. 2,000 years from now this will be America's lasting legacy. The modern day Tower of Babel. The consequences of man trying to play god. It's time we reevaluate everything. God don't like ugly I blame Arizona forn this curse.

Re: Guard watches coast for oil slick's first wave

They're saying that the oil slick is now the size of Puerto Rico, and it could very well be the worst ecological disaster in the nation's history. Oh man. This is so terrible. It really almost makes me want to cry.

I also read somewhere this morning that worst case scenario it could take up to 90 days to cap the oil geyser. This thing is going to devastate industries along the gulf coasts.

The cleanup is going to take years.

Life unfolds and each step you take can't be undone, each action causes chain reactions. Life is not immediacy, it is sad to see the environmental devastation unfolding, and I hope everyone involved is giving their best efforts, but no one who holds a lot of responsibility drops everything immediately for one incident, no matter how bad, because they are responsible for tens, hundreds, or thousands of other equally important things that if they just suddenly ignored, could go bad quickly.
BP/the Government/Pres Obama are handling this, and trying to do the best for everyone involved.

Please stop the blame game.
well said.

Re: Guard watches coast for oil slick's first wave

For you guys that like seafood, keep in mind that Gulf stream seafood is probably going to cost a pretty penny now.

I can already see the U.S seafood industry and the wildlife going down the toilet. Pretty awful.

I can't even imagine how much damage it will cause if it takes that long to get it capped. Unbelievable.

Re: Guard watches coast for oil slick's first wave

Yeah, it is really really sad actually.

I could get very political with this, but I am just saddened by the ecological impact this will have on the gulf. Its surprise no one seems to care about this, in that Tiger Woods gets more media coverage.

Not sure what news you're watching or reading hooskins, but this has been big news.

TMZ is not a news source by the way

Re: Guard watches coast for oil slick's first wave

As for the news:
BP says it will pay for Gulf spill's cleanup - Yahoo! News

I think this is a good recap of everything going on to try to stop the gusher and why it's so hard. It sounds like, at least for now, everyone is on the same page to try and end the leak and minimize the damage. It says that if this next approach (which will take 7-10 days) doesn't work, it could be up to 90 days to get the relief well drilled.
no words can explain how awful that will be. Everyone needs to be focused on getting this shell pump or whatever up and working.

Re: Guard watches coast for oil slick's first wave

Sure BP will "pay the bill" for the cleanup, but that bill is going to be passed on to the consumer in many different ways.

If this works its way around the Florida Keys and up the east coast like some say it might, it will have a seriously damaging effect on vacations/tourism to beaches as summer approaches. Memorial Day weekend and July 4th weekend could be seriously affected

Re: Guard watches coast for oil slick's first wave

I was in Clearwater Beach a few weeks ago, man if those beaches end up ruined I'm going to be seriously bummed. Such a nice area.
