Re: Make proposals to stopping the oil leakage in the mexican gulf

I wouldn't be too concerned, they are friendly, especially after they have been fed.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Bacterias are good... Let's try and get BP to do that.

Re: Make proposals to stopping the oil leakage in the mexican gulf

According to the page, it could happen by itself. The photo shows a colony of bacteria already on the oil slick. I doubt BP or any other oil company would ever even consider such a solution. I mean if they were in favor of natural and cheap solutions they wouldn't be an oil company.

Re: Make proposals to stopping the oil leakage in the mexican gulf

very true bobbym! I think that they should try every soulution given to them. I though would rather want more advice on plugging it than cleaning it up, but that's just what I think. I think ultimately BP will decide if they want to be open to ideas or behind close doors doing what they think is right for the company.

They would rather pay newspapers and local politicians off then fix the leak. In other words, sweep it under the rug.

bobbym that's it you're a genius! We get a rug, move it to the oil spill pipe, put it on the spill and tie some string around it, and Tada! The oil spill's fixed!

Re: Make proposals to stopping the oil leakage in the mexican gulf

That's it! I was thinking of a big broom to sweep it under the rug. The string around it will do better.
