Meanwhile, March was the warmest on record according to NOAA.
That will probably be denied by the groupies of Senator Inhofe who say global warming is the greatest hoax ever pulled.
Yesterday one of the three leaks was stopped at Deepwater Horizon by sawing off the end of the riser and placing a shut-off valve on the end of the pipe.
The big story concerning the Deepwater Horizon disaster, it seems to me, is the use of untested chemicals to keep the oil from reaching the surface.
That story focuses on the panic of BP and the government which is causing them to abandon normal testing of powerful chemicals before using them in sensitive ecosystems:
Testing of a new technique that involves injecting dispersants at the oil’s source - 5000’ below the surface - will require further monitoring to tell whether the sub-sea dispersants are having an effect and further analysis to ensure effects in the water column are not worse than those from oil.(NOAA). This is a travesty showing that they were not prepared for what was clearly foreseeable.
They have not tested the hundreds of thousands of gallons of chemicals being injected at the leak sites, 5000 ft. under the surface, as well as at the surface.
They have not tested these powerful chemical agents for either short term or long term effects on the environment.
Some of those chemicals will get into the Gulf current which will carry them to the Atlantic's Gulf Stream current, which flows North East, then crosses the world wide current that can take the chemicals to other oceans.
