BP Says “top-kill” worked, but drilling wells right next to it

Supposedly to ease the pressure. How about THIS supposition instead. BP trashed the ocean very thoroughly, the bottom-up killoff of marine life is in progress, the species that are being more than merely decimated provide the food for every other life form. There's an investigation supposedly happening in the area of the well collapse. An investigation BP has stalled for months by "fumbling" around "trying" to stop the oil. Knowing full well that in doing so they were stomping all around the Crime Scene. Which is what it IS. Even cutting out the obvious crime of destroying what looks like the damn how to put this? OK so I'll put it where a Far Right Profit-is-God Money Worshiper like Rush Limbaugh can understand. Economic crime in the theft of Trillions. Put a dollar value on what's going to happen to just the Seafood Industry. The fisheries are trashed and going to get worse. Rush was on the air just before the non-enforcement of existing regulations and cutting even those down to where they wouldn't make a difference... WHINING that regulations to protect some of the species that form the web of life in the sea would limit "Sport Fishing". And screaming like the bitch that he is about how "all those poor Fishing Boat outiftters and Fishing Tour providers were going to be losing money". Where's the concern for them NOW, on the far right? And that's just one small facet of fisheries management. The corals, not pretty rocks on the bottom but the living coral, the organisms that build the reefs. Endangered by a shrimping practice that was destroying the reefs, killing the living coral, and in a chain reaction, was killing off the shrimp. Not So? Read on... One of the processes was to promote the growth of organisms that the coral normally feed on. Some of which are to shrimp what anthrax is to humans. And of course the whole food web. Maybe food web is too complex for a Right Wing so-called "mind" to fathom.<<nautical joke. So we go with their more familiar linear Food Chain. Which goes straight up, never sideways and of course, never down. The part of the "bottom" supposedly magically regenerates itself, and placing one species on the "top" is kind of chauvinistic. Which affected every other aspect of the food linear "chain" including the Sport Fishermen that Rush boo-hooed about so much. Oh, that's right, it's Glenn Beck who does the fake crying. The process is just beginning, the vast majority of the oil is still in the water, combined with chemical dispersants... which are Toxic. Hidden away where most people won't see it. Trillions of dollars later they'll see it. And of course, in the Right wing so-called "mind" nothing that happens in the sea could ever possibly have any effect on the Food Chain web of life on land. According to their screed, events on LAND don't affect life on land. Just ask the bees, bats and frogs before they all

Be prepared, BP best plan not so good

Not that it comes as any kind of surprise. They hope, with the containment to cut the daily poison gusher to 15%. Which would be what, 10 times the original report? BP gets to replace the ONE well with 5 others. Excusez moi, add five more, as "bleeders" but only to ease the pressure, not in any way to have a 500% increase in the number of wells they were allowed on that one lease. They'll also get to pump 85% capacity without ANY regulation or for that matter oversight.Heavy Sigh... they'll also get to destroy evidence in the process. Who knows, in the coming months they might be able to keep bullshitting the regulators, such as they be, into letting them "stabilize" the wells with even more and more wells. Wouldn't that be a pleasant reward for their malfeasance? Matriarchal incest mongers. They get to rape Mother Earth on Mother's Day.
