How is the scrappy Plaquemines Parish Inland Waterway Strike Force cleaning up BP's mess as oil creeps into their backyard - the wetlands of southeastern Louisiana? With dustbusters. And they say they're "knocking the socks off" BP's cleanup crews.
Earlier today, BP reported that their latest containment cap succeeded in stopping the flow of oil from the Deepwater Horizon rig. But as the Science Guy explains, closing the valves on the new cap could make matters even worse.
According to BP officials, the latest containment seal placed at their Deepwater Horizon rig has been successful. That means that for the first time in months, no new oil is gushing into the Gulf.
Looks like BP has successfully placed a new containment cap onto that oil gusher in the Gulf. It'll take some tests and time before we know if this cap is actually effective though.
This morning will mark BP's umpteenth attempt at containing the ecological disaster they created months ago. And because they're out of new ideas, they're just trading in their kinda-working sealing cap for a (hopefully) better one.
