At last, some good news.

Apparently the PRESSURE from the oil pushing up from the bottom of the Gulf is so great that BP engineers are still concerned the cap may cause the oil to come up thru another location.

God speed.

Don't get your hopes too high---BP has no inclination to willingly permanently shut that well down, or let go of it, or give a clear picture of how much crude has been negligently allowed to spew into the GOM. If they don't feel sufficient public heat--they will be quite happy just siphoning away for profit.

i think they are still doing ALL they can to fix it. they are working close with the russians who has experience in stopping blowouts with nukes. i think the sea floor is ruptured.

Leaking well-bore or field strata leaks by now are a given--what does that have to do with BP's business ethics or economic self-interests? Or, the U.S. Federal Government's post-creative chaos agendas, for that matter?
