    I suspect there are a lot of ROVs in the world and that someone could get one down there to sample it without extreme disruption to the operation.

    I just don't trust BP with their "looks like drilling mud" stuff. They've not exactly shown themselves to be trustworthy.

    •  I'm an an engineer with a decent BS meter ... (8+ / 0-)

      When I hear the engineers talking tech stuff, I tend to listen. Physics, chemistry and mechanical engineering (especially with a live feed) are surprisingly hard to lie about. You can try, but it is really hard to weave an internally consistent story around a lie.

      Plus, most engineers really do want to solve the problem.

      When I see the management 'suits' mouths flapping, I put on mute and try to think happy thoughts.

        all I've seen is management suits talking. If I saw an engineer giving any credence to what the BP execs are saying, I'd be more confident. I agree that most engineers want to solve the problem.
