LOL, this is why I am a misanthrope

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704254004575274433337222768.html?mod=WSJ_hpp_LEFTTopStories

BP PLC has abandoned its effort to plug a mile-deep oil and gas gusher in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico by injecting drilling fluids after failing to stem the flow of hydrocarbons.

"We have been unable to overcome the flow from the well," said BP Chief Operating Officer Doug Suttles, in a press briefing. "We now believe it is time to move on to the next of our options," he said, adding it wasn't clear exactly why the so-called top-kill procedure started on Wednesday failed to stem the flow of oil.

Engineers will now attempt to contain the flow of oil from the leak with a so called lower marine riser package, or LMRP, cap. This operation would involve removing a broken drilling pipe that lies atop the failed blowout preventer and cap the valve with a siphon that will take the oil to the surface. Mr. Suttles said the LMRP cap procedure would take four to seven days. The LMRP cap is a newly made version of a device formerly referred to as a "top hat."

"The next thing to do is to capture all of the flow or as much of the flow as we can," he said, adding BP "has a lot of confidence" in the LMRP cap, but couldn't guarantee success. "We believe the LMRP cap has the potential to capture the great majority of (the leaking oil)."

The failed top-kill effort followed several frustrated attempts to activate the broken valve known as a blow-out preventer and install containment domes above the leaking well, which is estimated to be releasing between 12,000 and 19,000 barrels a day into the Gulf. The spill, which originated more than a month ago, when Transocean Ltd.'s Deepwater Horizon rig blew up and sank, has officially become the worst in U.S. history, surpassing the 1989 Exxon Valdez disaster.

LOL that oil leak is fucking retarded. I saw a cool thing about how to clean up the oil though. It involved Hay and Straw. It picks up all the oil and soaks into the straw. And the straw holds an extreme amount of oil. Plus it floats even when its full of oil.

Based on the size of the spill and undersea plumes measuring 6 miles in width I don't think that's the most practical method at this point.

All over money man.  They could give a fuck less about the environment when they're bringing in billions.  We look like a bunch of a dumbasses..."Well, let's see if this works, nope.  What about this?  Nope.  This?  Nope?"  It's comforting to have people that smart out there drilling n whatnot.:smirk:
