    I'm afraid there is no easy answer to this one....

    One of highest priorities is to get the oil flow stopped.

    It is going to take a lot of time and a lot of physical effort.  Every environmental agency needs to be involved and coordinated with all the necessary materials in place. Where the oil comes ashore anything absorbant needs to be used to help mop it up and get it taken away.

    Thousands of volunteers are going to be required to help.

    Stop talking about it,  stop the TV showing people in tears on the beach wringing their hands saying somebody needs to do something...  Now is a time for action ....   Blame can come later.

    The first priority was to save the rig, after that went down, the next priority is to save the oil. If they gave a hoot about the environment they would have collapsed the well after the fire was out. on day 4

    After 50-plus days they are still trying to figure out how to save the oil.

    We are just going to wait until the end of August of the releif wells to reach the broken well. Until then we just have to try our best to clean up as much oil as we can, and protect our beaches, most important Florida beaches, since there's more people there and it's bigger. Not saying that Mississippi is a bad place, but it's already been hit, so it's dead. It would be like the war, if you have been shot your done and recover, so we can try to do our best to clean up the mess, but should do more to protect other beaches that have'nt been hit yet. Give it 2 more months and it'll stop, until then clean.
