BP “top kill” fails, third giant underwater plume of oil discovered

Author’s note: This is getting out of hand!

There is no end in sight to the oily nightmare for Gulf residents. After halting the “top kill” procedure on Thursday, BP conceded on Saturday that they have failed to stop the volcano of oil and natural gas erupting from the floor of the Gulf of Mexico.

“This scares everybody, the fact that we can’t make this well stop flowing, the fact that we haven’t succeeded so far,” BP PLC Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles said Saturday. “Many of the things we’re trying have been done on the surface before, but have never been tried at 5,000 feet.”

According to the AP, BP is initiating the next step in attempting to stop the gusher that they created, which entails using robot submarines to cut the pipe that’s gushing the oil and cap it with funnel-like device, but the only guaranteed solution remains more than two months away.

“People are watching their livelihoods wash up on the beach. Parents are worried about the implications for their children’s health,” he said. “Every resident of this community has watched this nightmare threaten the dreams that they’ve worked so hard to build, and they want it made right, and they want to make it right now.”

Yeah right, Mr. Obama. Who’s we? You have let BP control this from day one. From a PR standpoint, a CYA perspective, or any other for that matter, the truth is, no one has a clue how to stop this leak, and BP is not solving the problem. While it is not your duty, nor the responsibility of taxpayers to clean up after corporations like BP, there comes a time when you need to step in…and by that I do not mean getting a dirty boot from the oil washed up on the shores.

Time to relieve corporations of their control and perhaps, it is time to put some of these people in jail for what they did.
