Bumbling Idiots

It seems one of the ROV's ran into a vent and BP has had to remove the cap that was containing some of the oil.

The result is that tens of thousands of gallons of more oil is leaking into the Gulf again.

Crews are working to put the cap back on.

This is but one example of the kind of things we will continue to face over the next two months since they can't shut off the well and must opt only for containment.

We've already seen where mechanical failures, fires and weather have all caused a stoppage or lessening of the amount of oil recovered. Just wait to they have to completely shut down all recovery for an extended period due to tropical weather or a hurricane.

With the riser cut of and the leak at its highest rate, the worst of the spill may truly be yet to come.
