I completely disagree with this irresponsible and unprovable comment. Next time you could at least attempt to back up your statements, Mr. pinkhouse (if that even is your real name).
Where does he get off with "hi"? I'll give him "hi"...

so that huge , long slick i didnt see, didnt come from the saratoga, where i didnt see the beginning of it. Pictures dont lie, i saw the slick . Its very long and obvious. Must be natural, right.
but Becky "Dble B's" said......
Not a leak, or a spill, just a sheen:

Don't you guys know what texture mapping is?
Remember when news was news, instead of all of this opaque window dressing? Oh, wait. I just dreaming...
Someone, somewhere is wondering if we can squeeze a rally out of this news.
"UPDATE 6/8/10 3:30pm - This blogger uses some interesting language, but reports that the Ocean Saratoga is working to plug a well that had been damaged by Hurricane Ivan in 2004. No explanation why there would be oil in the water as a result of this plugging operation. This also doesn't explain the possible leak we see on multiple satellite images of Platform 23051.
UPDATE 6/9/10 7:15pm - Some media reports are misrepresenting SkyTruth's work: we never claimed the Ocean Saratoga was leaking oil; our satellite image analysis indicates a possible persistent leak at or near Platform 23051, which is in the same general vicinity in the Gulf. These are two separate structures - one is a mobile drilling unit (MODU), the other is a fixed platform."
***** "Unidentified aircraft took photos this weekend that incorrectly reported an oil leak coming from the drilling rig Ocean Saratoga. At the time of these photos, Taylor Energy was actually conducting marine operations on site with a 180 foot dynamically positioned workboat for regularly scheduled subsea containment system drainage." ***** From RigZone:
So, too quote from above... "so that huge , long slick i didnt see, didnt come from the saratoga, where i didnt see the beginning of it. Pictures dont lie, i saw the slick . Its very long and obvious. Must be natural, right."
Thank God that the rig is at the mouth of the mississippi, thusly the water flowing from the river pushes the oil away from land... so the part about no land fall is true, well not LA land fall... maybe the Keys, Florida and / or Mexico...
These Rigs and the people who over work and understaff their crews... should be shot, not fired. I think when Florida... feels more of this over flow washing up, we will have a new conversation.. Alabama has 10 miles of beach front? tourism can only be so much of the States Production numbers... Florida, http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2010/05/100504-science-environment-gulf-oil-spill-loop-current-florida/ and the Bahamas... Cuba, God knows Cuban's don't eat fish.. too survive... not for fun like in Florida..
As the BP oil spill continues, the Gulf Coast’s fishermen, tourism industries, small businesses, and local governments are being threatened with serious economic costs. While the total economic impact of the spill remains to be seen, it is clear that the damages will be significant, given that the tourism and fishing industries alone generate billions of dollars each year.
Here are just a few examples of the value of the industries to the Gulf Coast.
