    They should clean it up by throwing acids en masse into the ocean, or, they could wait for it all to sink to the bottom and then collect it again.

    Here's a clue for you. The oil companies do have safety features on their drilling rigs. Not only to protect the environment and the hands working on the rig, but also to protect their bottom line. Incidents like this cost money. This is the last thing that any oil company wants. I don't understand why the tree-huggers are having such a hard time seeing that they have shared interest with the oil companies. The tree-huggers want to protect the environment and the oil companies want to keep from losing billions of dollars. The tree-huggers need to get on board with the oil companies to figure out how to do things better.

    Cheeney and Bush lowered the regs and depended on oil companies to be responsible. How ****ing more selfish and stupid can you get? It's 100% their responsibility to prevent and then clean up and then pay for the clean up of their screw ups.
    No one has said otherwise


    It was Cheeney who blocked the mandate of those emergency BOP activators. Did you know BP has that safety feature on their own rigs but, they don't put them on those rigs they lease.
    LOL...here we go again, people talking about things they know nothing about. Here's another clue for you: BP doesn't own any drilling rigs. ALL of the rigs they used are leased from a drilling contractor. In fact, very little of the equipment and tools that are used on a drilling rig are owned by the oil company. 99% of that equipment is rented. Why? So when it fails, BP can say, "that's not our BOP, that belongs to FMC, you need to talk to them", which is exactly the case, here.

    The emergency shutoff that your referring to was a remote shutdown, that would have been controlled from a location other than the rig. It would be diabolically stupid to install that feature on a drilling rig, because a glitch could cause the rams to close, when they're not supposed to. That could cause a blowout, too, ya know.



    Hmmm... why is that? Hmmmm.... Some idiots are claiming it was the Coast Guard's duty to have a gazillion feet of boom on board each of their ships just in case one of those hundreds of rigs in the gulf had a spill. Dumb doesn't cover that one. Halliburton will be sued by BP since it was H who caused the explosion and it's not the first time for them to cause one. What a surprise, ehh?[/QUOTE]


    Man, this is getting better and better all the time! Pray tell, how did Halliburton cause this rig to blowout. I can't wait to hear this!!

    Not exactly. There are rig hands and service hands. The rig hands work for the drilling contractor and the service hands work for the service companies that do specialized work on the rig and the well.

    You are right. Several other hyper-partisans with BDS agree with you.



    Obama is the president, not Bush or Cheney.


    So now you are an expert on oil wells and pipeline cementing ??



    Why not? You seem to think BP and other oil companies should. The Coast Guard is responsible for supervision and administration for the cleanup of ALL oil spills.



    Just a few minutes ago, you said it was all Bush and Cheney's fault? Did you forget that???
    at least you've backed off on your ridiculous claim the the coast guard was charged with the prevention of rig spills. good to see.

    According to the law, they are.

    Prevention is one of their duties.

    The Coast Gaurd monitors safety on oil rigs, so they are responsible to prevent spills, in part at least.
