it seems that it is not a wonder of century or wonder of policy of this war criminal obama and his gang of degenerates: clinton, biden, gates and the rest. Majority of this oil ( as it is very well known- oil is not renewable resource )flew out, pressure is lower and thatīs why this plumber works.

A corporate entity (BP) not particularly interested in being proactive, or practicing common-sense, or being public-responsive--all of sudden accepts some "humble" practical suggestion from some mysterious ultra-modest "Joe the Plumber" concerned citizen.
So "human-interest"-lik e, that the heart-tugging story is trotted out through the mainstream media.
Basically rehashing a propaganda symbol from the past ("Joe the Plumber") to help put "warm'n fuzzies" on a PR capping stunt that accomplished nothing positive.
There are 200 years' worth of North Slope Alaskan oil that could be safely produced--without ever having to engage in a BP poorly-managed, more difficult to produce deep ocean well. Since crude is abiotic--very likely these North Slope reserves may also be (at least partially) self-regenerating in liquid and gaseous hydrocarbons.
Either way, MORE THAN ENOUGH bought-time to develop fail-safe fast breeder THORIUM reactors (far safer than Uranium fueled ones). Or, the actual development of declassified Cold-Fusion energy.
Government has solutions--just seems never the right ones!
