    Natural gas well leaking in Gulf of Mexico, Coast Guard says

    NEW ORLEANS —The Coast Guard says natural gas is leaking from a well at a production platform in the Gulf of Mexico 74 miles southwest of Port Fourchon, La.

    Chief Petty Officer Bobby Nash says the well is not spewing, but a rainbow sheen four miles wide and three-quarters of a mile long was spotted in an aerial survey Tuesday.

    The Coast Guard says a crew was working Monday night to temporarily plug the well when workers lost control. Two other wells on the platform were closed off. No one was hurt.

    I hope you aren't using any petroleum or petroleum-based products whatsoever. You aren't are you? And if you get electricity from a power plant that uses it, then you are too.

    Natural gas? What can be harmful about "natural" gas? Well except for being near an open flame.

    It's a product of the evil private sector. It has nothing to do with protecting the environment.

    Jesus Christ people THIS IS NOT A DEBATE THREAD regarding the merits of particular energy sources.
    This is a CURRENT EVENTS thread to discuss a BREAKING NEWS ITEM.

    Back to the topic at hand. Let's hope this does not turn into another Deepwater Horizon. Methane is not stuff you want to play with.
