Top Kill is Killed

Looks like they have finally admitted that it isn't/didn't work:

http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/...SxVPAD9G0M3BO3

"COVINGTON, La. — As the nation remained transfixed by a busted oil well spewing millions of gallons of crude into the Gulf of Mexico, BP said Saturday that its latest bid to plug the worst oil spill in U.S. history still hadn't worked and scientists suggested any progress was incremental at best.

BP PLC chief operating officer Doug Suttles told reporters Saturday in Port Fourchon that the effort known as a "top kill" has not stopped the flow of oil, and that he doesn't know if the risky maneuver will succeed. He said the company was already preparing its next option to cap the well...."

I'm sure we'll get some estimates soon, but that number is even more difficult to determine than the amount of oil leaked/spilled....

I know the wildlife societies I belong to have been calling for help (money and volunteers) for weeks now.

This is totally devastating to the communities and people that depend on the gulf for making a living -- oil, seafood, tourism and now here come the hurricanes!

One wag on a news show suggested they take the board of directors of BP and stuff them in one by one until the leak stops. If that doesn't work, start at the top of the BP salary chain and work your way down until the hole is plugged.

I fervently hope they rescue breeding pairs of the brown pelicans and move them inland fast.

The harm mankind can do to its host planet (the only one we can live on so far) for profit, convenience or fun scares the bloody pants off me. If I was to come back to life in 100 years as a representative of my generation (I do not believe the world will actually end in December 2012), I could not but blush at the words thrown my way ... I could certainly not excuse our abuses. CONSIDER THE CHILDREN. Neil

In addition to the environment, I'm concerned about those bloody pants....are you okay?

Latest from the NY Times:

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/31/us/31spill.html

"After the failure of an effort to seal off a well spewing oil one mile beneath the Gulf of Mexico, a top Obama administration environmental official said the government is “prepared for the worst” in case oil keeps gushing until relief wells are finished sometime in August. "
