Deepwater Horizon debacle pushes alt energy – In addition to devastating ecological despoiling, the oil slick could shut down Mississippi River transport, effecting nearly half of U.S. import/export commerce. The damage to the tourism industry in Alabama and Florida could top $25 Billion a year for several years. Faced with this disaster the Obama Administration has just stopped all off shore drilling.

Mother gusher danger not passed – With BP applying several fixes to the leaking well and the spreading oil, people might tend to classify this spill as “just another spill” among so many, which will go away after a while. A blowout is still a very real possibility, and the repercussions of the oil spilt are far-reaching. (PESN; May 6, 2010)

Mother of all gushers could kill Earth’s oceans – Imagine a pipe 5 feet wide spewing crude oil like a fire hose from what could be the planets’ largest, high-pressure oil and gas reserve. With the best technology available to man, the Deepwater Horizon rig popped a hole into that reserve and was overwhelmed. If this isn’t contained, it could poison all the oceans of the world.

* Leaked report: Government fears Deepwater Horizon well could become unchecked gusher 30 Apr 2010 ‘The following is not public’ document –A confidential government report on the unfolding spill disaster in the Gulf makes clear the Coast Guard now fears the well could become an unchecked gusher shooting millions of gallons of oil per day into the Gulf. “The following is not public,” reads the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Emergency Response document dated April 28. “Two additional release points were found today in the tangled riser. If the riser pipe deteriorates further, the flow could become unchecked resulting in a release volume an order of magnitude higher than previously thought.”

* Oil > Ecological Impact / Dependence >
Productively directing our Deepwater Horizon anger – In response to the Gulf of Mexico predicament, Author Jeane Manning urges against depression, which is anger turned inward. Instead, she suggests that people direct their anger into propagating awareness of solutions to our addiction to oil, which have been available and suppressed for sometimes a century. The book she coauthored, Breakthrough Power, is a good tool. (JeaneManning; May 1, 2010)
