Is anybody asking what kind of chemicals is going in the Gulf. I mean if it eats or thins oil, it can't be much better than the oil it'self? Maybe I an dumb but I don't trust anything going on or being said about this and I don't hear any questions being asked at all.

Yeah, I'm worried about BP too, the EPA told them to stop using the surface dispersants because of toxicity issues and BP told them no...

I've tried to find if they've ever said what was in that stuff but nobody in BP or the gov't has said what it's made of... which is very worrying...

When BP experts cut the oil pipe to place the cap over the well.

1. The pipe and cap are threaded.(Or whatever BP determines is the best way to adhere the cap and pipe together.)

2. There should be an open valve on the cap.(The open valve enables the cap to be placed on the pipe without any resistance.)

3. Cap on, valve closed.

I was wondering what would happen if a hurricane were to hit the coast where the oil spill is? I am wondering about the effect of the oil that could be dispersed in the air....even for spin off tornadoes that sometimes happen further inland...would the tornadoes become bigger or more intense, or change in any aspect because of the oil?

Hurricanes are fed by heat rising off the water in the form of heated water vapor (evaporated water).

Not sure if the oil in the water would slow that down or add more heat into the water because it's darker than water and absorbs more heat from the sun...

Could turn a hurricane into a thunderstorm or into a super hurricane (goodbye New Orleans?)

I hope its not Goodbye New Orleans.........but the whole possibility is terrifying. Not only do we have to worry and grieve over the oil spill itself....and its devastation.......we have possibly even more catastrophic events on the horizon.....Please us find a way to fix this situation.....
