As sickening as this disaster is, and deploring the fact that it is going to go on for some time, this may come to represent an economic boon to a lot of people, even as it financially devastates a number of others.

There is going to be a massive and on-going cleanup effort needed to mitigate damage during active flow from the leak, and then to reclaim areas which are damaged afterward.

The scope of the project will be ponderous. It will be a tedious and almost entirely manual process that will require hundreds of thousands of people.

If I were young, unemployed, and facing the bleak future promise that Northern California presently offers, I would seriously investigate opportunities in the affected parts of the country and consider going there for the duration of this crisis.

In a parallel vein, I predict that a majority of the cost of the cleanup effort will ultimately fall on the government (taxpayers) since BP's liability is capped and the cost of this disaster could easily bankrupt the company if it tried to meet all of the legitimate claims that are going to be lodged against it.

You're constantly calling for the government to get out of our lives and yet when there's a problem that your almighty private sector is too feeble and too stupid to repair, who do you call? The government. You and all of your republican and conservative friends are lame dude.

What ever The government should have stepped in a long time ago, Why because BP was not doing a thing and our present leaders trusted them (with money in hand) to get it resolved and it backfired and the people whos livelehoods are being destroyed by all this.I only call for the government to take care of situations like what happening to these people so you are the lame one DUDE

Time to boycott BP. I'm wondering how soon the other petro-monopolies will raise gas prices due to the "shortage".
