Sounds like Obama is not involved, pointing his fingers at everyone. Things can get fixed in a short time.

Why should President Obama be involved? The spill happened off the coast of Africa, or did you forget that Nigeria is NOT part of the United States?

Good old Shell, caught asleep at the wheel, again.
Bet regular Nigerian citizens are not happy about this issue.

BP finally got to the spill in the Gulf? Only took a year and change.

That is not bad, considering Obama was in the way.

Not only do we pay their high prices for gasoline and oil, but WE pay for their oil spills, mistakes, neglect. It's a win-win business for them.

I don't know if I missed it in the article, but where did it say we were paying for the cleanup? I thought the head guy said Shell will clean up both accidents.

And of course, Shell won't pass the costs of that cleanup along to its customers...

The number and size of the spill's in the oceans is really troubling.
Not to mention the ocean acidification that is taking place, and the coastal ocean dead zones. Which are increasing at exponential rates worldwide. Caused by increasing nutrient pollution and the burning of fossil fuels ( among other factors )

One possible alternative which would help greatly ?
*** Algae based bio fuels.***
It's carbon neutral, it would help reduce nutrient pollution.
And reduce the demand for oil.

Sounds good. Who is producing it now and how long to replace oil?
09:24 PM on 12/26/2011
It is really amazing how ignorant most of you are to what happens to oil in a natural environment. It is a carbon based molecule and breaks down into the very element that feeds the smallest micro-organisms and thus starts feeding the food chain. Two months after BP- where is the oil? It broke down and started the food chain. In older days, the oil companies would ask the fishermen where the best fishing grounds were, and that is always where they found the most productive oilwells. All of you keep regurgitating the same lies. Pathetic.

I wonder how much the Pro-Pollution for Profit gluttons (Big Oil, Natural Gas, Coal and Nuclear) paid for this post... Hopefully not much, because it's one of the most idiotic I've ever seen.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=il5GYFEDJfk

If you think it's good for you, why don't you cook all of your food in it instead of of vegetable oil. Then we'll talk.

The next thing this Pro-Pollution for Profit gluttons will be telling is is that there is no such thing as pollution at all! It's just a big liberal fraud made up by Al Gore. LOL!!

Let me know how those french fries taste deep fried in fossil based oil... and how you feel after you eat them.

You really do 'need more info'... a lot more.
10:34 PM on 12/26/2011
Obviously you are one who has limited information. I live on the gulf Coast and am directly affected by oil spills. Yes, the big oil companies make billions of money, which provides you with cheap electricity and powers your vehicles at a fraction of what the rest of the world pays. The oil industry is the most regulated industry in the US, right along with nuclear. The ones you need to fear are the governments and big banks. They are ruling the world economies and are trying desperately to run the oil industry. There are over 1500 wind generators within 50 miles of me and most of them are right in the middle of wetlands, and not one of them is permitted. There are no state or gove regs on wind generators. You can destroy more habitat legally if you go green.

But BP used chemical dispersants in the gulf which was NOT oil.
That is dangerous.

Isn't it amazing what our government let a foreign company do that a domestic company is forbidden to do?

Truth through humor ... and sarcasm

The article said: "The worst Nigeria offshore oil spill in more than a decade has been contained before reaching the West African nation's coast."

Well there ya go, Off shore oil rigs ARE safe. And I'm so happy the oil companies got to develop and practice their containment techniques in the Gulf of Mexico until they got it right. Let's drill lots more.

If you couldn't tell, I was being sarcastic ... why do I think my words will show up in Fox Talking points tomorrow morning without this disclaimer??? [ "A reliable Internet source proclaimed..."]

i agree drill more.......no sarcasm involved

Drilling is not the answer. All the oil companies are doing is managing the end of their business. The sweet crude is all gone. Whats left is low grade crap that we pay top dollar for and as China begins to wet its insatiable thirst or it, the only people who will afford it will be the 1%. Now that's whats interesting. Some many people of means today relate to the 1%, thinking they are part of the same team. When the real super wealthy begin hoarding the remaining oil to the point the pseudo rich can't afford it, things are going to change real fast in world politics.

Oil is more toxic than thought.
Even before the spill, scientists knew that a drop of oil could kill a bird’s egg. But after studying the impact of the Valdez spill, they now believe oil pollution is at least 100 times more toxic to fish than previously known. It is also more persistent.

Who are you trying to kid. Oil comes from nature.

untill other forms of energy are perfected, natural gas seems better and safer
09:26 PM on 12/26/2011
Natural gas and oil usually come out of the same hole. Most all gas wells have some condensate and oil wells have gas.

So, why do refineries burn off the gas?
11:19 PM on 12/26/2011
Even if we use natural gas for energy, we still need oil for manufacturing.

Oil is getting more expensive and harder to extract.

The middle east and north Africa are an unpredictable and risky supplier.

Every individual, business and country that imports oil needs to develop a plan for greater energy self sufficiency.

It is time to transition to safe, clean alternative energy.

Our economic security and national security will depend on it.
