From Washington's Blog:

"As I noted Tuesday, there is growing evidence that BP's oil well - technically called the "well casing" or "well bore" - has suffered damage beneath the level of the sea floor.

The evidence is growing stronger and stronger that there is substantial damage beneath the sea floor. Indeed, it appears that BP officials themselves have admitted to such damage. This has enormous impacts on both the amount of oil leaking into the Gulf, and the prospects for quickly stopping the leak this summer."

This seems to confirm what Matt Simmons said weeks ago. The leak that we are focusing so much time and energy on is not the main leak and fixing it will have little overall impact. The only solution may be to try to nuke the well bore in hopes that we can collapse enough seabed into it to stop the flow of oil.

In other words, we might have only one option; one shot. If that fails the oil could flow for years.

Read the report at
Washington's Blog because it has a whole bunch of information that will change your perception of just how dangerous this blowout is. This isn't just an environmental disaster, this changes every single thing we know about how life should work.

Consider that if the oil reaches the Gulf Stream (many think it has) it will travel up our East Coast, over to Iceland and on to Europe. The Gulf Stream and the warmth it carries keeps Europe in general and the British Isles in particular at a livable and moderate temperature. If the Gulf Stream stops flowing as it has we have the real possibility that a vast section of Europe will become brutally cold. Go to a
world map and look at how far north most of Europe is. If the Gulf Stream is changed or moved, most of Europe will have much more in common with Siberia than it does with Minnesota or Iowa. Not to mention destruction of sea life and how that ripples through the food chain along with changes in rainfall and water purity.

Buckle up and prepare; and pray. There is no way to really anticipate what this blowout will do to the human race and the world we live on. The possibilities are frightening.
