BP Oil Leak in the Gulf of Mexico

What is this planet coming to?

It's been over a month since BP began spewing oil into the Gulf of Mexico. Unfortunately, we're no closer now at stopping the leak than we were the day it happened. Oil has now made its way to shore and has polluted all of the beaches along the Gulf coasts. Yet it's still pumping into the ocean, even as I type this. :(

Here it is Sunday night and the next attempt at stopping the leak isn't going to happen until Tuesday!? How many more hundreds of gallons does this calculate to? Why not try applying that fix RIGHT NOW!?.. Before you go to bed in your multi-million dollar homes another night? Ooh, better yet, why not have a solution planned out before you go drilling the holes in the first place? Greedy assholes! (sorry Mom)

This is incompetence and finger pointing at it's finest. It's simply unacceptable and makes me very angry. My children now have to live with the effects of this insane pollution problem. Thousands of species are being effected by this and will continue to be effected by this for years to come. Hopefully I'm wrong, but it seems like BP is giving about 65% of their effort to clean it up.

In one of the harshest government condemnations of the petroleum giant to date, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said BP had blown "deadline after deadline" and had not "fulfilled the mission it was supposed to fulfill."

"I am angry and I am frustrated that BP has been unable to stop this oil from leaking and to stop the pollution from spreading," Salazar said at a Houston news conference. "We are 33 days into this effort, and deadline after deadline has been missed."

The federal government could resort to taking over tasks now controlled by BP, Salazar suggested. "If we find they're not doing what they're supposed to be doing, we'll push them out of the way appropriately," he said. -
I say push them out of the way tonight and take over. Somebody, FIX IT!

Presently it is the blind leading the blind... I say create a Big Plug... with a pointed end that widens out at the top... a big stopper... and ram it into the hole and keep ramming till the hole is plugged. And they are talking about clean up... well we will know how well that is working after everything dies... They need a leader desperately. I say do testing after you have plugged the hole. And know too it is not just the water being polluted... These hydrocarbons are going directly into the air. Talk about the carbon foot print. Watch it closely that is high pressured hydrocarbon gas coming out of there. And we have controls at the gas pump to release very little Hydrocarbons... And now we are watching as tons of Hyrdocarbons are being put into our air. Everyone should read about our dropping Oxygen level on our planet. We can not imagine where we are headed.
