I see a lot of dooms day prophesies about the gulf oil disaster lately and the one thing I have learned about such forecasting is that they are usually wrong. It is not to say there are not serious problems in the world and that this is not one of them, but I believe that the leak can be stopped and it is not the end of the world as we know it. A reader sent me this video showing how close BP oil is to stopping the leak and I think it important for this to be shared with as many people as possible. There are enough things in the world to fear without this being one of them. The companies involved have used this technique 40 times without fial and are expecting similar results. In any case we will know soon enough.
