We won't be vacationing anywhere near the Gulf anytime soon, that's for sure.

The Europeans who came to America couldn't learn from the American Indians to live as one with the Earth. We continue to contaminate the land, sea and air. It will only stop if there is a global disaster such as a supervolcano eruption, major meteor strike itself or a possible resulting hypercane in the ocean. How long before mankind extinguishes enough of itself before nature begins to be restored? Not in our lifetime, it will take nature centuries to clean up our mess.

Our troops fight and die in wars to provide these oil companies with product and this is how they return the favor. BTW that 200,000 gallon per day estimate has turned out to be way off. Many are now saying it's at lease 1 million gallons per day and perhaps more than 2 million gallons per day.

Has anyone else notice that BP seems to be more interested in catching the oil as it comes up than actually stopping the flow? Is it possible they are still trying to make a buck?

Why is British Petroleum allowed in US waters anyway?

I am typically for off shore drilling, and I understand this is a worst case scenario but this shouldn't happen, EVER.

I have to agree with you regarding BP being allowed in US waters ( don't think it should be limited to waters either ). This is not the first disaster they have caused, but it should be the last. I don't think they should be allowed to even stay in business - anywhere, let alone the US. Halliburton is also involved in the latest disaster - where have we heard that name before ?
