    No, it id not look that way at all.

    I support your observation - I would just like to see it actually work as it is supposed to.

    I think people would be amazed at what bubbles out of the sea floor.

    What's the status of this well? Is it still leaking, or have they stopped the leak?

    That's a production platform, not a drilling rig.

    "a rainbow sheen four miles wide and three-quarters of a mile long"

    ...is the equivalent of a few gallons of oil. Oil spreads extremely thinly. This incident is occurring fairly far out in the Gulf, very little chance of the shore being impacted.

    Business has been slow enough for my company this summer, I don't need anything else to worry about.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    Yeah invest in companies like solyndra and EV that fail. Why not be a true sport and not use any crude oil, natural gas or use anything made from coal. I think that means living in the woods with no equipment and please don't make a fire.
