Re: "Top-Kill" positive karma thread
I do not understand how...
A) we can send a MANNED submarine down the mariana trench to the deepest a man has ever gone.
B) We send men and equipment in Space, which operates in a vacuum and pressures never imagined before
C) We landed on a Moon!
D) Harnessed the Power of an ATOM!!!
And we can't plug a whole 5000 feet down?
This tells me that our greatest scientists are not on the job, That this issue is not of top priority to our nation.
That is the only rationale. If we didn't after 10 days create a Manhattan style project of the countries brightest minds to say, we have an issue, how do we solve it...
As a libertarian, I am outraged that this private company is wreaking havoc on so many acres of private owned beach, and destroying an aspect of life which people relied on for their wages.
I also hate that we are stuck with using oil for energy and have to have 4000 Rigs in the Gulf of Mexico in the first place.
