  1. The magnitude and impact of this disaster will eclipse anything we have known in our life times if the worst or even near worst happens…

    We are seeing the puny forces of man vs the awesome forces of nature.

    We are going to need some luck and a lot of effort to win…

    and if nature decides we ought to lose, we will….

    Having just viewed all 6 parts last night of the Elders Video’s that edger posted… I cant recall which one had the statement that rang this bell, but… the Laws of Nature cannot be “beat”… Nature…. energy… can be harnessed or managed or tapped or maybe manipulated but “beat”?, as in we win, s/he loses? no….. no. it just doesnt work that way. What part of “LAW” do these people not understand. (BP not the poster)

  2. Are we beginning to see the rupture of the sea floor?

    Will the sea floor deteriorate so badly that the blow out preventer collapses?

    Will the well be gushing with no restrictions and no ability to capture any of it prior to surfacing?

    How many gallons a day could be gushing into the gulf in the nightmare sceanrio?

    Would the kill bores (relief wells being the sanitized name) even work if the well bore is compromised down near the producing strata?

    If the kill bores don’t work, and this comment is suggesting that is a reasonable possibility at this point, the magnitude of a worst case scenario is simply unfathomable.

    We may have a black gulf for years.

    Could it get so bad that the only option is to nuke it?  

    Would that even be an option that scientists would recommend if the oil industry traditional measures simply don’t work?

    I grew up in Galveston, an island in the gulf.  Haven’t lived on the gulf in 40 years, but I can’t imagine it gone.
