I’ll let the scientists figure out how much to use and how deep to blow it.

It is and will be worst than the Exxon-Valdez incident. The seafood industry in the Gulf is in peril. Make BP pay, and get the Navy involved. If there is a way to transport the contaminated waters to the deserts in the Middle East, we can create an oasis there. We have to eat less shellfish and consume less energy. Got to clean it up before the hurricane season. Godspeed.

If the solution won’t harm sensitive areas, then it should be tried. The barriers may keep a major disaster from becoming an even bigger disaster. Best wishes, Michael E.Bailey.

If we could please get our Scientist get people to caught as much Scamp Fish to bread.Scamp is called also know as King of the Sea. When I say Scamp most people think it is Shrimp. All is rough and blame doesn’t work.Elbow Grease.We need jobs let BP pay our out of workers. Remember we are at war and as they say oil is addictive and every Dollar pays Iran.Pay troops to come home and clean our earth. God Bless America
Thank You Administrator Jackson,
Jim Jonas

– Because – Crude oil floats.. it is a matter of covering few feet in depth.. from the surface..

Challenges – Barrier from where to where ?? Which are the areas that need to be protected.. ?? Is such data available?
