    I hope its true too...yesterday they said it was stopped but the cameras showed it clearly pumping away, not even touched, then, they shut the camera off. Seems that even though it has been giving a live feed for 36 days, as soon as they said the leak was stopped...the camera 'dies'. I dunno...

    I mentioned something about taking 5 of the people in this forum, putting them in a room for a few hours and having a solution. Im betting in 5 MINUTES they could have come up with the solution that they decided on. This thing has been a disaster since day one. I HOPE that all politics aside they finally get this stopped and get underway with the cleanup.

    Even BP is now saying they won't know until Sunday whether or not the 'Top Kill' method is working. The color of what is coming out of the hole now is clearly different than before they started this, but to it the fact that it is still coming up tells me that it hasn't worked... yet...

    The mud they're pumping in needs time to solidify, especially since it had to first build up in a channel which is under pressure. That takes time.

    It makes sense that the well would still leak out, but as time goes on the flow will lessen.
