In the article, “BP’s first attempt to divert Gulf oil leak fails” by Harry R. Weber, explains how BP’s plan to cover the leaking pipe up and collect the oil that is left in the reservoir failed since the oil has crystallized. Also, in this article the author talks about the range of the leak expanding when piece of oil that looked to be bark turned up on the shore of Dauphin Island a few miles away from the coast of Alabama. This leak has gone from a bad accident to a horrible catastrophe that has taken over the Gulf of Mexico and is heading for the Atlantic ocean, if the oil hits the Atlantic ocean the oil could find a current and travel anywhere in the world. Clearly, the spill in the Gulf of Mexico in a huge problem and I can’t wait for BP to find a solution that works so no more wildlife will be killed.
