Press**Watch: SEABED LEAKING OIL

Categories:

It's worse.  check this link:

 

Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL): Andrea we’re looking into something new right now, that there’s reports of oil that’s seeping up from the seabed… which would indicate, if that’s true, that the well casing itself is actually pierced… underneath the seabed. So, you know, the problems could be just enormous with what we’re facing.

Press**Watch: bomb the gusher?

Categories:

Last week I mentioned using Navy depth charges to seal the BP well.  It is worth noting that the US armed forces have giant non-nuclear devices like the MOAB which run to thousands of pounds and approach the force of a nuclear device.  I do NOT recommend the use of a nuke to seal the Gulf gusher, but apparently nukes have been used in the past by the Russians--and this would appear to be the source of the comment that I first heard on Thom Hartman's show (AM 620 Portland):

The reason that BP is trying 'containment' or 'top kill' is that they want to be able to profit from the thousands of feet of hole that they've already produced.  They know it has oil--we all do, now--so they want to "contain" it or plug it at the top ("top kill"), and that way they can save lots of money and still profit from the new "relief well."  The new well will use imaging seismic technology and directed slant drilling to access the (considerable) remainder of the old hole.  Get it?

Since this show aired, the news came in that Halliburton was responsible for the failed undersea equipment that allowed the oil rig fire in the Gulf of Mexico last week to become the great environmental disaster of 2010.  Here are some of the notes I used for the interview:
