I think we’re just getting acclimatized here to the fact that the Gulf is dead for generations. Period. All these ridiculous charades they’ve been parading around as solutions have NEVER WORKED. “Top Hat” - has NEVER WORKED, “Top Kill” - has never worked on a well even near this size or depth, “Junk-Shot” has definitely NEVER WORKED, EVER. Now They’re drilling a relief well - which is also not a sure thing. The fact is that they could easily miss, and even a successful relief well could fail to relieve all the oil coming out at such high pressures.

And for EVEN MORE BAD NEWS: “Professor Says The Leak Could Go On For Years!”
