A NOTE FROM LES: "Listening to the news today and this evening motivated two 12 year olds to create this video using my song Oil and Water. I watched it and it blew me away. I hope it acts as a catalyst for a moment of silence or a prayer that this capping effort works and that this horrible BP oil spill disaster gets turned around and the gulf is on the road to recovery. There is no greater power than people coming together in prayer." Les Sampou
Finally an answer we can all understand.

Senate Democrats today asked unanimous consent to pass legislation that would give the BP Oil Spill Commission the subpoena power it needs to do its job. "Frankly, it's time we have a vote after so many Republican objections to this commonsense legislation," said Sen. Robert Menendez.

There are a lot of things wrong with this picture. There is a media blackout going on in the Gulf. Meanwhile the media is ramping this disaster up to biblical proportions. This looks to me like a total black opp. You can call me a doubting Thomas if you like, but I see every opportunity here to make this oil spill up. And then use all the equipment and chemicals to actually create a controlled disaster. It is all too apparent that they have been destroying our environment threw weather radicalization and chemtrails for a long time. Now they are ready to take it to the next level, and so they can NOT and must NOT permit us to see what they are actually doing. More on this soon friends

Oil spill, my Idea is to create a strong water whirl to contain the oil in the center. The Oil has a lighter density than water and therefore should remain at the center of whirl while the water is expelled in the opening between the Bottom Hat and the Top Hat. The power of the 3 water pumps (or submarine propellers) is controlled by an operator on a ship, watching at all time what is going on through a video cam. A Heater in the ''pump box'' will warm up the water to avoid any ice formation. I hope this could help...
A simple effective solution to the gulf oil spill. Maybe BP should take notes from these 2 guys.

A giant funnel to be installed at the scene of last month's devastating explosion off the US coast, is BP's best hope of halting the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The device, designed to channel oil from the seabed to the surface where it can be collected safely, will be set up on Thursday. However, with the energy company itself not sure it will even work, Russian experts suggest that a radical solution from Soviet history may be a way out.
Scientists at the NOVA Southeastern University Oceanographic Center fear that the Gulf oil spill will reach South Florida waters and impact fisheries, wildlife, and the economy. A current loop which extends up through the Gulf and then back down around the tip of Florida and up the east coast may pick up the oil and damage sea grass, mangrove, and coral reef habitats that are home for many species.

A NEW APPROACH TO THE TREATMENT OF OIL SPILLS - plastic booms and oil skimmers are largely ineffective - dispersants only move oil from the water surface to the entire water column - oleophilic & hydrophobic clay absorbs and contains floating oil spills - the patented clay technology can be applied to the spill via aircraft or broadcast atop the spill from ships using pneumatic devices
Al Jazeera looks at what engineers are facing in trying to stem the flow of oil.

READ THIS: Dick Cheney's deregulation agenda is the real (underlying) reason / cause behind the US oil spill by British Petroleum (BP) in 2010 off the coast of Louisiana in the Gulf of Mexico. Deregulation coupled with lax government oversight (lackies appointed by Dick Cheney at the helm) lead to the omission of key safety features and protocols, a free pass for drilling licenses, emphasis on profit over safety, and absolutely NO PLAN for containment of blowouts. In addition, the courts in the Gulf States, are completely stacked with Republican appointees (like Feldman) with major investments in or connections with BIG OIL (see last paragraph). Must read: www.nytimes.com For example, George W Bush and Dick Cheney helped block a 2002/03 Bill that would have required the use of acoustic switches as a means to activate the blowout preventer (BOP). Also, BP did not want to lose an oil well (by activating the BOP); this would have cost them future profit in addition to the costs for exploration and preparation of the well. This is most evident when you look at attempts in the first month and a half: all of the post-blowout efforts have been focused on SAVING the well; it was only after more than a month before BP attempted "TOPKILL", which would have sealed the well. Lastly, US District Judge Martin Feldman, who overturned the temporary drilling ban on June 22, owns investments in Ocean Energy (Houston-based), Quicksilver Resources, Prospect Energy, Peabody Energy ...
