    FYI, Gulf Watchers was watching oil seep from the well head weeks ago when Thad Allen was declaring that no oil was leaking.  As of last night there were still hydrates forming around the HC connector.  This should not be happening.  

    The purpose of Gulf Watchers up to this point has been to provide the most extensive eyewitness documentation of this disaster by knowledgeable observers who have dedicated themselves to ensure the information we get is as accurate as possible, and to provide a library of related information and materials to those who wish to further read about the DWH disaster.  

    Every so often someone drops by the Mothership to question WHY we continue to do so.  We do so because this is the worst environmental disaster to ever hit happen to the United States and if we do not learn from this disaster, it could easily happen again.  If nothing else, we have learned that they (the oil companies) may the technology for drilling in water this deep, but they do not have adequate safeguards to prevent disasters like this one, nor do they have the technology to adequately stop a runaway blowout such as this one.

    Knowledge is power.  One of the main reasons for Gulf Watchers was to provide a clearing house of technical information regarding this disaster, deep water drilling in general, regulation and legal issues, and the economic and environmental impacts of this disaster.
