Damn! Tar Balls hit Galveston Beach area

It has just been reported that oil and tar balls from the Deep Water Horizon oil spill have now landed on beaches outside of Galveston. BP is rushing equipment and clean up crews to the area to help stem the tide of the damages to Texas, however, now the oil spill has affected all the Gulf States and Texas is in line to receive more damages from the spill.

This is very sorrowful and bad news. Not that I want anyone to have to deal with this, but to see Texas's shores affected by this really sucks. I hope Big Shell doesn't get trashed!

I'll tell you something that sux worse than that! I live outside of Bacliff Tx,I have a friend that has a hydraulic knive that shears pylons from old bridges.It is lowered into the water then a hydraulic door closes around the pylon then the shear is activated and it shears them off clean.Bp had him shear some pipe and it shears it off but it bends the pipe when it closes but shears it,it would stop the overall leak but it would ruin the line so they do not want to try it? Go figure.

Big deal so what it ruins the line (STOP THE LEAK AT ANY COST). This thing is getting out of hand. It's effecting more and more areas every hour. It makes me sick to think we put a man on the moon but can't stop this disaster from devastating so many.

LOL. Y'all heard that the bigs were considering detonating a nuclear device to plug the hole, right? Yeah, imagine that. No kidding, they are!

Saw on the news the other day that the tar balls that hit Galveston and the surrounding beaches tested NON-POSITIVE for the Deep Water Horizon spill. They originated from an unknown other source. How 'bout them apples?

A few of you may not know this but oil is always leaking up from the ocean floor. Drilling in the gulf has lowered the amount of the years. I remember as a little kid getting tar on me when I would go to the beaches. In my late teens and early twenties it hasn't been a problem.

I hope they stop it. I need a few days off. We have been swamped since it happened. We have made most of the stuff they are trying.

Yeah, I knew that MG. Natural seepage. The news made it out to be that there was another major leak going on somewhere. I just rolled my eyes...

Good f-ing luck getting any accurate info from a television or the internet. I guarantee you that there is way more to this than we will hear about.To a s. p. the end always justify the means.
