Bill Gates Has an Idea on How To Plug The Spill. Do You?

Friday, June 04, 2010

Everyone from scientists to political pundits to movie stars to just plain folks seems to have an idea about how to stop the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico these days. Nuclear weapons, hydraulic pipes, bails of hay, and high tech water cleaning systems have all been put on the table. Takeaway listeners join the fray with some of their proposals, including cameo appearances by Bill Gates and Samantha Bee.

The oil leak could have been stopped within the first two weeks. The detail we're missing here is that BP is NOT trying to stop the leak. They want to continue gathering oil. This whole fiasco hasn't been about stopping the leak but how to recover their revenue stream. Whatever damage to nature or residents it won't be as bad as losing an oil well. You can pay off nature and residents but you can't pay off shareholders. Tony Hayward is going to get a massive bonus at the end of this.

But, seriously, how hard could it be to crimp the pipe and bent it back?

I don't know how to plug up a hole but I do know how American consumers can bring BP to their knees - STOP buying their GAS this summer!! No matter what marketing ploys they may use and no matter what reduction in prices they have - don't buy into it!! I have never seen it not work when good people stand up for justice in numbers. Please think seriously about it.
