You know it’s bad when Fox News mourns what’s being done to the environment!
BP’s next shot-in-the-dark plan for containing the black death unleashed in the Gulf of Mexico: Top Kill.
Top Kill will attempt to inject “heavy fluids” into BP’s thousands of gallons of oil per day leak, then the company will attempt to cap the leak with cement. This was a method for capping burning wells in Kuwait, but it’s never been tried in water this deep.
The LA Times defines heavy fluids as “heavy drilling mud which is twice the density of water.”
On a failure/success continuum of “1 to 10,” a BP spokesman says Top Kill is “above a 5…a 6 or 7.”
I imagine BP conjured such statistical precision in the same places they conjured Top Hat, Junk Shot, and Top Kill: up their asses.
You can watch catastrophic human failure HERE live!
