I honestly cant believe theres no topic about it... the worst and most harmful spill in our history... just terrible. kills wildlife, economy down there... fishing is non existant down there now.

i was and am against off shore drilling and for alternative methods... what are your opinions? you think bp is doing all they can?

I think BP is in a very sad position. I guess that 90percent of the oil platforms are build similarly and don't have many protections against this case, it was just bad luck that it happened to them and that the ventile didn't work. But at least the people will now wake up to it.
It's very sad for the environment and the people living there. I honestly think that if they would have to pay for all the damage created by this spill then they wouldn't have got any money any more, even BP.

I don't know if you guys watch the daily show at all, but Jon Stewart pretty much speaks my mind for me when it comes to politics. they had robots to do the work for them and it was like a last result, Are they idiots?, that should have been the first thing they did. they are just fools, idiots, and morons. why did you have to get me started on politics? I'm just gonna stop here before I start my little rant.

It all has to do with politics. Why do you think they had to go way out in the ocean where it's a mile down to the ocean floor to drill. Because of political law makers have made it so. They don't want Tourists to see oil rig's when they go on vacation. Had this same thing happened in 1000 feet of water then it would have been fixed fairly quickly.

It's a terrible accident and there are 2 fixes in the long run...force oil companies to drill in shallower water or find a new source of energy.

^^thats very true. me ebing socially democrat economically split i have to say that it isnt just as much the governments fault.... well maybe almost... bp bypassed checks that the government should have done and didnt have to have saftey precautions because the government failed to pass the law...

i say no offshore drilling but we need to find a source for oil or switch. what id do is drill until we find a reliable cheap alternative... then once we can widespread it across the nation slowly slow down drilling... oil is a miracle substance... amazing source of energy just hard to get

Wouldn't drilling in shallow result in more mishaps though? I mean, yeah, it'd be fixed easier, but theres more action in the shallow water with boats and things. Especially rented boats tourist use and such. Just sayin'.

no drilling in shallower is easier, less depth, less pressure, less chance of badness happening... but thats the reason they dont because of boats and stuff

I just ran a five mile marathon to help clean this spill. The Houston Texans sponsored the run.

Rock on!

here is all i have to say ----

a lot of people have this opinion that somehow BP was flaunting "safety rules" and that caused the problem. i'm not saying that it's untrue, but what i'm saying is that ---

i'm an engineer. i work for an engineering firm. we don't work in the oil industry. however, we do work in the power industry. by law, any plant built in the US must follow the codes/standards created by ASME; the american society of mechanical engineers. BUT, my company's own internal policy for design is even MORE stringent than ASME's.

now if we design a plant outisde of the US... we don't have to adhere to ASME. but the point is that, as a company, we hold our designs to a higher standard of safety.

i work for a (relatively) small company, about 300 people. in my experience, the larger the company, the more BS red tape you have to go through. and i know this from experience. we work with other companies. the bigger the company, the more pain in the ass they are. sargent & lundy.... ugh. SO annoying. because they have people checking the dots on every freaking I in a multi-thousand page spec.

the point is... BP is a giant corporation. they're not stupid. this "accident" is just that --- a tragic accident.

OH also --- i agree that we need to find alternative energy sources. nuclear power? hello? idiots.

(i also read that the average political lawmaker, US or otherwise, is probably not as smart as i am.... suck!)
