  •  That's been apparent for a long time. (6+ / 0-)

    All the rest is just diversionary bullshit.

    •  They have to try other things. One may work (1+ / 0-)

      It simply is not known.  

      The only sure and permanent thing is the relief well, but if they sit on their hands and don't try other ideas that have a 60% chance of working or 50% then possibilities are lost.

      I think calling it "just diversionary bullshit" is a little unfair, everyone is trying their hardest.

      There is a huge difference between a corporation and individuals in it and i would bet my bottom dollar that the majority of the people in BP and working on this are desperate for a solution.

        in Las Vegas. One more time at the crap table and I will be rich.
        The majority of people working at BP don't control the company. It's the crooks at the top that do.

        •  No. Do you really think they should stop any (1+ / 0-)

          attempts until the only permanent solution is found?  I would be far more livid if they just sat on their hands until august.  I don't care if there is a 10% chance of success, until the relief well us dug and running the enviroment continues to die, fragile ecosystems will die and so will people's livelihoods.

          A compulsive gambler is just wasting his money.  Your attitude seems to be that of a heart surgeon saying well, we know when we get a donor heart your life will be solved but until then we aren't going to try anything that might save it
