    Good point - so that takes out possible water-level oxygen depletion and leaves everything else.

    That's so 5 years ago. It's all Obama's fault now.

    I agree (are you shocked??)

    As far as the turtles not knowing they can dive under the booms, every turtle I've ever encountered in the ocean immediately dove to get away. Diving to safety is their first instinct.

    and when they are bankrupted, who will pay all the people BP said they were going to pay?

    The guy in the OParticle was saving the turtles from the burn-field before the field was set on fire . . . and now is not allowed to do so.
    Here's the thing I just can't wrap my head around,....

    BP spends BILLIONS in locating and drilling for oil more than a MILE beneath the ocean surface.

    Something goes wrong and OIL begins to rise to the surface.

    MILES of it.

    So, what do they do?

    Gather it all up and set it on fire!

    What the **** is that about?

    If you can gather it up to burn it. Why can't you collect it, put it in barges and take it to processing?

    I don't get it.

    With all the technology we have,.... I don't believe it for a minute that in the event that the okay (FREE OIL!) was given,... salvagers and scavengers would find a way to grab the majority of the oil before it ever had a chance to reach shore.

    Then it appears to me that Green Peace is negligent in performing their duties to save animals.
