ABC news 'Clean up teams having trouble'...

Postby don taylor » Tue Jul 27, 2010 10:47 am

Finding the oil? Rush is reporting that ABC has spoken to clean-up crews and they are having a hard time locating oil slick to clean.

What's the word? Are they packing up soon?

And here is yesterdays ROFFS satelite photo:

If you look at the photo-the oil has broken up into smaller pools and is all the way to the Keys...there is still quite a bit around the mouth of the river though.

So.. Are there too many clean up teams working the gulf? Are the feds keeping all this going at a feverish rate to increase BP's tab? Keep people in (artificial) jobs? It appears they have people scouring the gulf and looking, just in case they find some, but they aren't finding the mass ecological disaster they were expecting. I've seen the pics of the pelicans in the box covered in oil, but I don't know how sensationalized it is. Honestly, its because I haven't watched the news on TV in over a year.

the clean up crews will not be scaled back until the well is killed either from the new top kill attempt that will start in about a week-or from the bottom kill...they are about to reach the well-bore with the relief well.
I'm sure there are clean up crews walking the beaches to the east of LA. in miss, al, and fla. that are not finding oil...

as long as we don't get hit with a hurricane, the impact on the ducks should be minimal now that the gusher has been halted till the relief wells are finished... i'll breathe a lot easier when the well is cemented in and capped permanently.

Indas:
Did you hear about the government payin farmers in 8 different states to flood a total of 150000 acres and not hunt it to try to keep the ducks from coming to the marsh. The farmers who get accepted will get paid $45 per acre to flood thier rice and not hunt it.
