BP, Oil Flow, Lies, and Videotape

Steve Wereley, an engineering professor at Purdue University has released estimates of the oil flow from the BP well in the Gulf that are at least ten times what both BP and the US Government have been saying.  We must know how much oil is entering the over mile deep water column in that area if we're going to try to mitigate this disaster and if we're going to force BP to pay every penny it owes the people of the Gulf Coast, the Caribbean, and the world.

Gulf Coast Oil Spill and Our Old Friends Halliburton

See this full set of pictures here.

When obtaining the license to build this enormous oil well that reached over a mile down into the water to drill, baby drill, BP said the chances of an explosion or catastrophic accident was next to zero.  Aren't these same people making the same claims about nuclear power plants?

Oh, and a little tidbit about this that brings a nostalgic image of the evil Dick Cheney to the mind's eye:  Haliburton was the company that did the cementing, a process of injecting cement to line the well cap and the walls of the well to contain the highly explosive gases.  Haliburton's cementing is also implicated as the cause of the gigantic Timor oil well blowout last year.
