Today is Day 43 of the BP Gulf oil disaster.
An oil expert explains to George Uré of UrbanSurvival one reason why the BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico is so intractable a problem:
“What is going on in the gulf is about DRILLING – and that means that even in the oil patch there are few people who could begin to handle this. Drilling engineers are the SMALLEST group within each oil company – geologists, geophysicists, production engineers, reservoirs engineers, HS&E, and admin all are larger departments than the drilling guys! Now you take those and do a division of normal vs deepwater drillers and you get an even smaller group. BP is probably number 2 behind Brazilian Petrobras in terms of deepwater engineering.”
And what is Obama doing about this?
In the 42 days since the BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded on April 20, Obama has gone on two vacations (North Carolina mountains, Chicago), played golf, fund-raised for Demonrats, hosted the rude president of Mexico, played basketball, celebrated Cinqo de Mayo, yucked it up San Francisco billionaire Getty…. (See complete run-down of his activities HERE.)
Obama finally made his visit to the Gulf coast on Day 13.
26 days later, when even the MSM began criticizing his inaction, he made his second visit to the Gulf coast On Day 39.
Now, the Punk has come up with a brilliant solution — let’s ask a movie director what to do!
Earth to Obama! Just because James Cameron directed Avatar and Titanic — about a big ship that sank — doesn’t make him an oil drilling engineer. You are confusing cinema with reality.
