They should've listened to Beyonce: "If you like it, then you should have put a ring on it." That was bad. I know.

yeah, it's a serious deal. I'm an environmental engineer currently working on an EPA Superfund site, but sometimes you have to step back from the situation to keep sanity!

You guys are right. This is a very serious event. :( Louisiana's fishing culture is potentially ruined. Cajun food is sure to have a lot less crawfish. There are a lot of dead animals, some of which may have been on endangered lists. Let's not forget about the people who make their money on the water. Their lives will never be the same. I hope the cleanup campaign restores this disaster quickly, although I doubt that this is possible.

Frankly, I think that most people don't really know how serious this spill is. I am not an environmentalist, and I support offshore drilling.

I just read an article that seems to be very in-depth and unbiased in what's going on. In fact, it is the best write up I've seen on what's really going on.

The article comes to the conclusion that it is now a race between how fast they can drill relief wells and how soon the well itself is going to collapse. The writer is fairly certain the collapse of the well is a given, and is almost certainly going to happen before any relief wells are drilled.

I highly recommend reading the article which is long, but informative.

I'm going to post this link in another thread, because this thread is/was more of a joke thread.

It was just a joke thread... Hard for you and I to see much humor in this one.

yeah, this goes a bit beyond the occasional environmental 'whoopsie' that happens from time to time. Latest estimates have about 45k-60k barrels a day are leaking ... thats about 50x what BP initially said it was. And odds are, next week the estimate will be even higher. But, all this negativity towards deep offshore drilling is good for biofuels and the Alberta Tarsands (and the middle east). Oil needs to come from somewhere for at least the next 50 years ... Alberta and algae seem to be better alternatives to potentially ruining coastal fisheries.

For those who are wondering about the effect of the Alberta tarsands ... its an area the size of Florida and so long as its profitable, the area will look something like this:


for perspective, each of those trucks weigh more than a loaded 747 jumbo jet and are the size of a 2 story house.

get off oil? No, not yet. But there is technology that exists that can take a large bite out of fossil fuels. Problem is, such technology requires oil to be above $75/barrel ... which is where it has hovered for quite a while.
