    This is on real all anyone seems to care about is money lost look at all the sea life you are killing when you kill the sea you kill the earth. You can put a man on the moon but you cant stop this oil. come on does a bload clot not stop your heart you can lay miles of pipe to the center of the earth so why dont you run a pipe down to the break have the pipe hooked to a inflatable rubber tube with a pipe hooked to the middle then inflate the tube with air to form a strong seal in the broken pipe and the oil can be pumped to tankers above with out leaking into the ocean your wasteing time with all the robots . you need research sub ALVIN on the seen with the flexpipe with the blow up rubber tube i could make the thing my self for god sake and iam broke house painter lol

    So this plan is dated June 30, 2009. The next question that needs to be answered is who within the government actually signed off on the plan? There must be a document that is dated and signed. It is probably signed off on by more than one U.S. agency that is part of the current (Obama) administration.

    Oil Spill Eater II There was a non toxic Alternative to clean up the spill that has been successfully tested by BP after 10 months of spill damages. The Coast Guard sent a letter from headquarters stating to the FOSC to take action with OSE II, and the EPA, Lisa Jackson stopped the Coast Guard from allowing BP from implementing OSE II. In fact the EPA stopped the application of OSE II 11 times denying State Senators direct request for use of OSE II from Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. La Department of environmental requested the use of OSE II as well, EPA’s Sam Coleman denied their request without reason. Governor Jindal tried to get OSE II demonstrated on the Chandelier Islands on May 6, 2010, and the EPA stopped the Governor as well. The EPA in fact stopped the use of OSE II 11 times, without a reason given. Had the EPA allowed Governor Jindal to allow the demonstration of OSE II on May 6, 2010, it is possible a significant portion of the environmental damages, including the shorelines and the seafood industry would have been spared. The toxicty test comparison between OSE II and corexit really cannot be compared since with corexit, the label states it can cause red blood cells to burst, kidney, and liver problems if a chemical suit and respirator are not worn. OSE II in contrast can be used to wash your hands and is non toxic. The BP Deep Horizon spill has proven that corexit only sinks oil and causes the same oil to be addressed a second time when it comes ashore as under water plumes, or tar balls, while OSE II has a substantiated end point of converting oil to CO2 and water.
