You'd be surprised how much oil can be found in that well. BP should spend more money.

You know, that could have been the last 5% of the oil estimated to be left on this world.

If you light the ocean on fire when a hurricane comes in, you can get a FIRE hurricane. hoho.. ho?

In a more serious note, relief wells will be done in a couple months...

In pictures: Louisiana coast protects itself from Deepwater Horizon oil spill | Environment | guardian.co.uk <-- that picture is kind of cute with the flag there

Iz really odd much of the news isn't really reported on TV here.
Some crappy BP news block.

Well. They DID cause potentially one of the biggest, if not THE biggest oil spills in history. I'd be pretty cheesed off if it was. Especially if I saw oil washing up on my god damn shores.

Well, it could get into the top 10. I believe it's already the largest in U.S. history. So far 23-46 million gallons have spilled. Very rough estimate, hence the huge range.

But it has a long way to go to be the biggest. The 10th largest was a 1988 spill that released 40.7mil gallons. 2nd place was about 100 million gallons near Mexico. And 1st place was a deliberate one. Iraqi forces in Kuwait deliberately caused a huge oil spill that released between 380 and 520 million gallons of oil.

Seriously, everyone should stop using BP (They don't know the power of youtube and the internet)



BP is using more toxic dispersant despite warnings


BP Trying to cover up


Spoiler!

There was a better chart, but i forgotten where i saw it.
BP is climbing up to the 3rd largest spill in history.
Do note that that isn't any major oil spills for a very very long time until now.

It is actually possible if the fume concentration is high.

But i think heat will disrupt the air pressure and kill the hurricane.

But hurricanes can spawn tornadoes. Which can also change into this on occasions.



Sooo yeah... even if there are no fire hurricanes there might be fire tornadoes? :<
