Because the BP oil disaster story is not going anywhere anytime soon, nor is there an end in sight as far as the leak goes, I’m starting a new “series” of posts here at Beach Peanuts, entitled “Must Be Something In The Water.”
Whenever I find something of particular interest regarding the oil spill, anything about it or BP, that for whatever reason doesn’t warrant a larger post, I will file it under that title. There is just so much information, AND misinformation out there, and so many aspects of the story I want to investigate and write about here that I could spend virtually every waking moment doing so. However, I can’t do that, nor do I want to. This is one solution for purposes of information overload.
Whether it’s a “quote of the day,” a significant event or information, be it fact, fiction or funny, but there just isn’t enough for a full post, you’ll find it here. And yes, I know there’s nothing funny about an oil spill. But let’s face it, “humor happens.” I’ve experienced a great deal of tragedy in my life and having a sense of humor helps. (Seriously, try it sometime. Snark is a great outlet for anger and a safe one at that.)
So without further adieu, today’s “Must Be Something In The Water” involves what might well be MORE of what’s in the water in the near future: oil.
Series Of New Blowouts? Bill Nelson: Oil May Be Seeping Up From The Sea Bed
According to Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL), they’re seeing something new down there on the sea bed. There are reports of oil seeping up from the sea bed that would indicate that the well casing is pierced. This could mean that even the relief wells currently being drilled won’t help unless you get the plug low enough where the pipe is breached.
This is NOT good news.
