"A “cap” over the well is capturing “probably the vast majority” of the leaking oil, Chief Executive Officer Tony Hayward told the Broadcasting Corp. today in an interview in London."
I don't know what to believe, but I hope it really is capturing the "vast majority."
"“In the long term, the threat from this well will not go away until the relief well has been drilled, pressure has been taken off and the well has been plugged,” Allen said. “In the meantime, we need to optimize our containment efforts.”
So it seems the "top cap" has worked, kinda. I guess. If you call that working. Oil is still leaking from the well, and the sheen is moving onshore across Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.
Obama's moratorium on offshore drilling is still meeting resistance from selfish idiots. Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour actually endorsed the resume of drilling in the Gulf today. WTF is wrong with these people...
