I thought the power of a hurricane was fed by heat from warm waters, so shouldn't a fire hurricane help the hurricane instead of destabilizing it?

Sooo yeah... even if there are no fire hurricanes there might be fire tornadoes? :<
in other words either way we're screwed.

Pretty sure the fire hurricane thing is a joke. The amount of moisture, by any measurement, in a hurricane will be much greater than the amount of flammable liquids and gases a hurricane might pick up by going over an oil spill. Kind of annoying to see people taking the fire hurricane scenario seriously. An actual problem would probably be petroleum products going inland due to storm surge.

And just as a clarification, the gasoline vapors are most likely to be lit on fire. Here's a table of boiling points of various feuls: http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/fu...int-d_936.html You will need a sufficient rate of evaporation to be able to sustain a fire hurricane scenario.

Fires would destabilize the air flow in a hurricane, which would cause the hurricane to break up.

I feel like we're blaming BP too much when we really need to blame all of deep oil drilling practices in general, and our usage/dependency on this type of energy resource. Sure BP did it, but it could've happened to any company that does it, BP was just the scapegoat.

I would agree had it been a truly unfortunate accident, but they skipped quite a bit of safety and preparation steps (e.g. using a blow out preventer that was known to be faulty) and preparedness (e.g. basically reusing the same disaster response plan as they did in Alaska), and forging ahead even after unsatisfactory test results. But what annoys me more is that no regulators caught onto that.

But, I agree, it would probably be a good idea to start shifting away from petroleum as an energy source and onto something else right about now. Though, in reality, I'm sure all this will blow over in a year or so and we would have forgotten all about this unfortunate event.

The priority had always been to increase the amount of oil being captured and piped to the surface, he said.
quoted from BBC article

Basically, of all their previous plans on what to do, most of them have been "How can we get the oil that's leaking out and pump it onto our ships?" type plans. The only one I can remember that was supposed to shut it off permanently was the mud and cement solution which failed. Didn't matter that the oil was coming out quickly and destroying ecosystems and shutting down fishing jobs in parts of the Gulf that was being affected. They just really, really wanted to get that oil.

Now just have to wait for them to kill this well, which won't happen until the relief wells are done.
