Is there currently any greater problem in the world than figuring out how to plug the BP oil leak?
Apparently the leak is actually growing with fissures of new pressure leaks recorded up to twenty miles away. The oil is also releasing toxins in the air that are far beyond safe. I’ve heard the press is limited in their ability to get the story out too.
Outrageous theories abound with suggestions of a new ice age created by the lessened reflectivity of the water, to that entire regions mantel collapsing due to the pressure recorded by the newly found fissures, leading of course the the death of the gulf and a change in the ocean currents at the very least.
Remember the last time you were on a jet looking out the window at 20,000 feet? That’s how far down they drilled.
What greater concern could any human on the planet have other than plugging that leak?
