so after bp tried to explain that injecting mud worked, we are now being told it didnt.

BP on Sunday said it will strengthen its efforts to stop the flow of oil and protect the coastline after the most recent attempt to stop the Gulf oil spill failed.


why they wouldnt have already strengthened the efforts to the max already is beyond me

That's certainly what your post came off as.

And do you really think they haven't been trying everything that might work? Just because they say they'll try harder doesn't mean they haven't been doing everything they can. I mean, come on.

EDIT: I also fail to see where they said "We haven't been giving this our full effort." Maybe you aught to learn to read as well.

Let me help you put that within your grasp.
What they tried was a method that would be the most effective at sealing the leak, if it had worked. It didn't work. So now the try another method that might seal the leak, but even if it works, there will be more seepage around the seal. A drastic reduction in flow, but not a perfect seal.

You can see why they wanted a better seal, if possible.

Why didn't they do them both at the same time?
The methods are different. Not compatible with each other. Got it?

Even if this method works, the complete fix doesn't happen until August.

Because if they oil reserves run lower, then the BP giant can drastically increase the price of sales, make a massive profit off it, blame someone else for the whole spill, and then fix it with a method they knew all along would work.

*removes tin hat*

but seriously though, im sure its not just another day at the office; plugging a massive undersea oil leak which is in full flow. If they don't know they maximum amount of effort they need to put in, they can't put it in. They only find out when the method they are using, doesn't work and they think to themselves "Damn, we need more effort than this"

This. It also costs money to fix it.

Money should never be a factor when it comes to something as serious as this. If we can't grasp that then I'm definitely sure it won't be long till we become nothing but a scar.

And I truly think most people don't understand the seriousness of this. As much as i would like this to be easily solvable I doubt it is as simple as we hope it is. Its seems like we created an impossible problem for ourselves to handle. I don't think effort is a factor.

Well, money isn't really the problem. The problem is that they're trying to plug a massive oil leak 5,000 FEET BELOW THE SURFACE OF THE OCEAN. No one's ever had to deal with this kind of leak before, and they're not sure what it will take to stop it. Hence, the failed tries. It's not that they're not giving their best effort.

I do agree that people don't understand the scale of the disaster though. I know people who are blaming President Obama for the fact that the leak hasn't been stopped and the Gulf hasn't been cleaned up. They don't quite grasp how huge this actually is, methinks.

Uh trust me on this one, BP has got PLENTY of that, bra.

OT: Old news, they've been working on a new solution that, at least IMO, seems well thought out and solid.

I'm going to the Gulf Coast within a week or two to aid in the cleanup effort for a couple of weeks, making nearly $2,000 a week.

500? I wish. This one is 5,000 feet below the surface. Which is REALLY ****ING DEEP.

This is seriously gonna kill Pensacola. Pensacola is a city that is based on tourism for most of its revenue. Without our pearly white beaches and seafood, there is little reason to come here. BP might settle in court to pay out a couple billion dollars, but it won't cover the losses over time that we will suffer over the next few decades. Like I said before, this will destroy us.

I thought it wasn't heading over there East to Florida yet. Couldn't you guys just set up those floating repelling devices, sand breaches or whatever?

This is a reason I don't think what happened with Exxon Valdez is applicable in this case. Alaska is great...but its kind of far away from the majority of Americans, and to be blunt, not that many people care. This is in one of the most prime regions of the U.S., for residents spanning from Houston to Tampa, and tourists. People in Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi still have the devastation of Katrina engraved in their minds and I think frankly people are sick of this shit with the oil companies and the government in general.

I'm angry at the government for not doing more, as we've been saying this isn't just BPs(broken pipes) problem. Its everyone's. Really, I haven't even heard that much outrage except from Kevin Pereira.

And to respond to the thread, this is everyone's fault. It's BP's for half-assing every aspect of everything, and it's Obama's for waiting 10 days to say anything to them about it.

It's coming in the next few days. That, and floaters wouldn't phase the oil if a hurricane comes along, which it will in the next month or two.

That wasn't my point. My point was that Alaska is still suffering two decades after the spill. And we will too.

It's 5000 feet under water. That's about the main reason. Tough to work at that depth. Also, it's spewing enough oil that it's impossible to just slam enough garbage (literally) in there to block it up.
