People should listen to him.
Here is where I look back.
Here is where you fell.
This is where I got up,
Shaking off my tail
This is where your rope trick
Started to look stale.
A greyhound pass for the boy in the well.

All of everything that the public has seen so far has all been just a dog and pony show that had no chance whatsoever of working but had to be done because there would have been total outrage and panic if they had done nothing. The human race simply does not have the technology to do anything with the kind of pressure that they hit.

The pressure in the well blew out the connector plate 1000 feet below the sea floor as well as the concrete around the well and still had enough pressure that the bop (the strongest one made, rated at 15k psi) could not close it.

The oil flowing thru the broken connector plate 1000 ft below the sea floor is "following the path of least resistance" thru the mud and sediment that make up the sea floor in that area and is emerging thru a hole or crack in the sea floor miles away from the "bop" that they have had everyone watching. This thing has been spewing well over 4 million barrels per day from the beginning. They are spraying dispersants into BOTH geysers which is keeping over 95% of the oil below the surface. Rest assured that all that oil will eventually surface... on someones beaches.. somewhere.

The only thing that has any remote possibility of working is relief WELLS. IF they can hit a 7 inch diameter pipe drilling diagonally thru miles of ocean currents and then mud and rock, the pressure in the deposit will likely blow out the first relief well just as it did the original. It took 3 relief wells to stop the really shallow and low pressure well that blew in 1979. They might be able to stop this with enough relief wells to divide up the pressure to the point that all the wells can be capped. I think stopping it by christmas would be fantasy, it will likely take a couple of years if they are able to stop it at all before enough emtpy space is created in the deposit that the sea floor collapses into the well.

I think/hope the relief wells work as they did have control of the well before they displaced the riser with sea water. With heavy mud when they intersect the well should fill the original well with kill mud and kill it, time will tell.

How? Pickens came across like a typical, cocky oil dick to me. He claimed BP was doing "the best they can". Best they can in what regards? To stopping the flow? To allocating money where it needs to go to help clean up? Or are they putting too much wasted effort into their PR campaign? And what's with all the rent a cops and National Guardsmen acting like they are working for BP? I think it was a wasted interview. We are getting much more relevant info from SHR right here.

drilling the relief well before the main well? - because you will need a relief well for the relief well.
Why is it taking so long to drill the relief well? - thats how long it takes

Oh yeah, Larry's the one who looks stupid . . . Larry's just doing his standard "sheeple questions" and letting the guy talk. And this some of what Pickens said -

"But, one thing about it, if there's a good side to it, everybody is going to understand more about producing oil in deep water."

Good side? How does this help us? Congress is the band of nitwits that makes all the rules. It doesn't matter what we know or don't know about deepwater drilling, Congress is going to screw things up no matter what people know. And this applies to everything, not just deepwater drilling.

numbnuts also said:

"There were even people on today saying they didn't like what BP was doing. BP is doing their best, I know that, they're not any different than any other company that had the same problem."

So he's basically agreeing that it's okay to have rent a cops guarding the beach and stifle all talk and pictures about what's happening and waste a bunch of money on PR when it should be allocated to clean up and saving animals.
