  •  No. A decision with huge consequences (6+ / 0-)

    for months and months. A decision made in haste, probably so some fuck wouldn't miss dinner.

    It rubs the loofah on its skin or else it gets the falafel again.

      I guess that we will be waiting till winter due to unforeseen problems (no one could have predicted a tropical storm....missed relief well....difficulty injecting mud and cement from the section we did drill into)...

      So at 25,000 bbl/day with a 80% chance of killing this well by November (my best guess), we are looking at
      May-Nov, 7 months of leaking 7x30x25 = 5,250,000 barrels of oil spilled or 220,500,000 gallons spilled.

      Holy f'ing crap.
