The BP Deepwater Horizon Disaster was caused by an exploratory well that when 'accessed' was 50% crude oil and 50% methane. The videos of the disaster shows an offshore drilling platform listing and burning, but, the videos show more than that, they show an uleashed vat of fossil fuel deposits reaching the surface of the sea with uninhibited fury.
The burning of the Deepwater Horizon, a state of the art drilling platform, was unabated. There was absolutely nothing any human or human imagination could do to stop that well from doing exactly what occurred. Sure there were huge mistakes along the way. Complete abandonment of the original drilling plan as the vat became more and more challenging to access. A Blowout Preventer that was never going to work even before it was lowered to the seabed. Substandard materials, substandard practices and more and more 'bargaining' with fate as the vat became more and more unattainable.
By the time BP's disaster became reality, it had abandoned its business plan, its safety margin, its insight and its desire for anything except greed. That is no wrod of a lie. The event will be the worst disaster to the USA in its history and continues to cause huge environmental damage was guaranteecd to happen. The petroleum industry is out of control and that is never more evident as the hydraulic fracturing that is occuring around the world.
Chesapeake Energy (click here) suspended the use of a controversial natural-gas production technique in Pennsylvania on Thursday as it worked to contain a well blowout that spilled toxic fluid into a local waterway....
Evidently the way to have a save environment in the USA is to first destroy it !
