+ - BP "top kill" fails 1

Submitted by oxide7
oxide7 (1013325) writes "BP Plc said on Saturday its complex "top kill" maneuver to plug the Gulf of Mexico oil well has failed, crushing hopes for a quick end to the largest oil spill in U.S. history already in its 40th day. It may be another two months before the London-based energy giant can definitively turn off the gusher — a delay that could undermine U.S. President Barack Obama as he faces growing criticism for a perceived slow response to the disaster."

BP "top kill" fails

  • Is anyone genuinely surprised? I am sort of comparing this to how most project managers seem to work in our office here. It's the "postpone, have a meeting, reconvene at a later date" game from what I can see.

    It is just such a damned shame that all the time this carries on, there is oil spewing out into the ocean.

If it's not in the computer, it doesn't exist.
