NOAA has even issued a "fact sheet" explaining what could happen if a hurricane came across the spill. Depending on how the storm tracks, massive amounts of oil could foul the wetlands anywhere from Texas to Florida.
What is it going to take to get the assholes at BP to stop that thing up? A Unified Command has been created to manage response to the spill, but where's the Unified Effort to stop the damn thing? Looks to me like we are standing around waiting for BP to clean up it's mess, but to Miss Ginger that makes about as much sense as waiting around for a baby to change it's own diaper!
The next Acme Product that the Wile E Coyotes at BP are going to try is a "Lower Marine Riser Package" which is coyotespeak for "huge-ass rubber plug". They are first going to cut the broken riser pipe off of the well-head, which makes the most sense of anything they have tried yet.
If that doesn't work, they may have to send Wile E down there to cut the riser himself. Then he could drop a giant boulder over the end of the pipe and the problem would be solved!
I certainly hope no one would consider pulling into a BP station for a fill-up after this disaster!
