From the reports I'm hearing and starting to see just a little bit, the oil spill of last week is way worse than they initially thought. It is like a faucet at the bottom of the ocean that they cant turn off. The little oil volcanoe is how you can look at it. It is gushing out and still hasn't been turned off. These idiots in a mad rush for profit didn"t calculate that if something like this happens, how would they stop the gushing. They are trying everything in the book and can't get a hold on it. Just to let you know how serious this is, it is over 5000 ft down and we may not even have the equipment to put a lid on this. It is only 3 miles from Southern Lousiana, Alabama,Mississippi and Florida and is threatening to wipe out all ocean life and could potentially cause a mass evacuation if it gets into the water supply. Fisherman are crying and could be wiped out of bizz for years. There are many Bubba Gump types down here , even though the majority of people with fishing boats are white. I predict they won't tell the residents unless it makes it all the way inland to a point that nobody will have to be told but overall this is a way bigger and more serious disaster than they are making it out to be.
