Are we doomed with the uncontrollable oil disaster in Mexico?

If this engineer is right, this is truly a scary scenario! Here's his story.
"Heard your mention of the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico this morning, and you (and most everyone else except maybe George Noory) are totally missing the boat on how big and bad of a disaster this is.

First fact, the original estimate was about 5,000 gallons of oil a day spilling into the ocean. Now they're saying 200,000 gallons a day. That's over a million gallons of crude oil a week!

I'm engineer with 25 years of experience. I've worked on some big projects with big machines. Maybe that's why this mess is so clear to me.

First, the BP platform was drilling for what they call deep oil. They go out where the ocean is about 5,000 feet deep and drill another 30,000 feet into the crust of the earth. This it right on the edge of what human technology can do. Well, this time they hit a pocket of oil at such high pressure that it burst all of their safety valves all the way up to the drilling rig and then caused the rig to explode and sink. Take a moment to grasp the import of that. The pressure behind this oil is so high that it destroyed the maximum effort of human science to contain it.

When the rig sank it flipped over and landed on top of the drill hole some 5,000 feet under the ocean.

Now they've got a hole in the ocean floor, 5,000 feet down with a wrecked oil drilling rig sitting on top of is spewing 20 0,000 barrels of oil a day into the ocean. Take a moment and consider that, will you!

First they have to get the oil rig off the hole to get at it in order to try to cap it. Do you know the level of effort it will take to move that wrecked oil rig, sitting under 5,000 feet of water? That operation alone would take years and hundreds of millions to accomplish. Then, how do you cap that hole in the muddy ocean floor? There just is no way. No way.

The only piece of human technology that might address this is a nuclear bomb. I'm not kidding. If they put a nuke down there in the right spot it might seal up the hole. Nothing short of that will work.

If we can't cap that hole that oil is going to destroy the oceans of the world. It only takes one quart of motor oil to make 250,000 gallons of ocean water toxic to wildlife. Are you starting to get the magnitude of this?

We're so used to our politicians creating false crises to fo rward their criminal agendas that we aren't recognizing that we're staring straight into possibly the greatest disaster mankind will ever see. Imagine what happens if that oil keeps flowing until it destroys all life in the oceans of this planet. Who knows how big of a reservoir of oil is down there.

Not to mention that the oceans are critical to maintaining the proper oxygen level in the atmosphere for human life.

We're humped. Unless God steps in and fixes this. No human can. You can be sure of that!

That is correct, the oil reservoir under the gulf of Mexico is huge, that is the main reason BP and Obama will not allow the use of 'nuke' to seal the well off, they are still contemplating for the right moves in order to recapture some of the remaining crude oil in that reservoir, not cut themselves off from those oil fortune. If the leak continue, if means that they still have the chance to get majority of barrels inside the well since it is a very big finds under that dept of water. No way the British company want to place well-being of our environment or our earth at the top of their priority to stop this oil spill madness; even though it means further delay will has catastrophic outcome. Sigh!

I cannot understand the foolishness and blindness of these people. They are also killing themselves and their children.

That is incorrect, Justin! BP executives family are mainly British who happen to live far away from Gulf of Mexico,USA and so with Obama's children (in Washington D.C), how in the world the spill can affect them and their children, not only they didn't kill themselves, they hardly need to make a living from the gulf's water or eat the sea food from there; they are profiting from the oil fortune bury deep under the ocean oil well; not the clean water from the gulf or our ocean like the fishermen or shrimpers. It is quite a common trait you can find among company executives and high level government officials, known as "lack of empathy". Not only they are well and kicking since the oil leak, they are not being affected a bit in drawing their big salary each day.

Actually most of the extremely deep ocean drilling is on experimental basic, all these claims by big multi- national oil companies that they possess advance drilling technology is just a way for them to bullsh*t the regulators in U.S.; see that the so called 'fail-safe' system and the 'blown out prevent-or' are just faulty devices use to mislead government agency that tasked with regulation. Even after 30 days since the explosion, investigator still has no clue how is that explosion is possible with all these safety devices in place on the drilling rig.....too many questions remain unanswered so far..

We are very close to doom day scenario if the big corporations are allowed continue to pollute our air and atmosphere with greenhouse gases, and then now move to the next phase of environmental destruction of our ocean, it is no doubt if our earth continue to take those beating, i am afraid to tell you then very soon only God can reverse this destructive course evil men lay down for us.

The oil spill is not in Mexico, but gulf of Mexico. Man...... It is under the territory of United States of America. Obama want to have more off shore drilling and he is not convinced this oil leak is a norm in off shore drilling, he strongly believe it is just an aberration in oil industry, accidents like this don't happen often, so he refuse to withdraw all the leases on off shore drilling in the United States, i am sorry to disappoint you hoping to see Obama do something about uncontrollable oil disaster in the future, it doesn't sound alarming to him at all.
