I am saddened by the oil spill in the gulf. It will take over 100 years to clean up.The people responsible that is the CEO,s Have to be held accountable. There should have be a system developed at the same time as deep water drilling was developed to contend with potential problems.
With any system as complicated as a drilling platform these things will happen. It will be up to the small people to ban together and fund a legal challenge against the perpetrators of this crime. Because it is a crime. Otherwise they will get off scott free and will laugh all the way to the bank. It has happened before in the gulf and will happen again. If they need someone who can stop the oil leak they may call on me by putting a comment in the comment section and I will reply. It is a simple job in adverse conditions, Granted.
I did work in strata control and work as a commercial diver and engineer as a matter of interest.
