Connecticut isn’t one of our largest states, but it’s intimidating to consider that three and half million people, the population of Connecticut, live in an area about the size of that mess in the Gulf of Mexico. You can not see end-to-end of the BP oil spill from one spot, unless you’re in space.
Blogger Eric Berger, the SciGuy says the Gulf Spill is being tracked via satellite from space.
The Toronto Star writes about human and animal hair being used to clean up the Gulf oil spill.
One more thing. Chicago’s WGN radio morning talk guy pointed out that while BP owns the oil involved in this disaster, a multi-megabuck company called Transocean owns the rig, pipes, processes, technology, and responsibility for safety out in the Gulf. Some months ago, they were bragging about what a tremendous project this would be.
As I understand it, there was only one person from BP company on that rig most times. The rest were of, from, or working for Transocean. And did you know the WGN guy also reported there was a party happening onboard when the explosion took place? I haven’t read this info anywhere else, and no one can let BP off the hook, but I wonder what the real stories are under the stuff we’re getting in the media?
