Most oil fires are extinguished with explosives.
How hot is that fire at 5,000 feet of ocean depth?
This is not
a gas well, this is not
an oil fire......haven't you noticed?
Track the big undersea globs.You mean the ones BP denies any knowledge of ? Who put them in charge.
You'll have to show me where they have denied the blobs exist. They certainly didn't go looking for them, they have been slightly involved in actually plugging the hole. They have, I would most certainly agree, underestimated the amount of gas and oil spewing out.
Who put them in charge?
We, the United States of America, did when we issued BP the same kind of licenses and permits as we have for thousands of other wells, mines, pipelines and other industrial structures. What do you suppose the USA should have done on, let's say, Day Seven of the Spill? Confiscated the company? Nationalized it's assets? Then what??? Send in those super-secret government experts who do all the well emergencies in the USA??? (psst...they don't exist.)
BP has the equipment, the personnel and the experience, the United States Government does not. (Strike that experience part. NO ONE, I repeat, NO ONE has ever plugged a blown-out well at this depth of ocean.)
This disaster occurred at the very limits of BP engineering skill, it's also at the limits of humankind's engineering skill unless you know of some group who has vastly greater expertise.
