      then, the hurricanes are coming in the Gulf and, everytime an hurricane will come, the (already bad) containment cap MUST be unplugged from the wellhead since the ship that collects the oil can't remain there with an hurricane, so, the oil will flow from the well at 100,000 barrels per day!!!!
      and (everytime) it will need for: 5 days to unplug the containment cap and evacuate the storm site, a couple of day for the storm, another couple of days to come back on site and one day to replug the containment cap = 1,000,000 more barrels of oil freely spilled in the ocean... or worst...
      WHAT are they waiting to listen those who have the RIGHT IDEAS AND SOLUTIONS to STOP the oil spill QUICKLY to SAVE the sea and shores nature and wildlife BEFORE they'll be submerged by over 250,000,000 more gallons of oil, in the next TWO months (if lucky) ???????????
